Bonus System

Beitrag von C0RNi666 »

Hallo,

bin mir nicht ganz sicher, ob ich das Bonussystem richtig verstanden habe.

So wie ich das gerade sehe ist es nur moeglich einen 0,7 Sprung in der Note zu erreichen, wenn man >=100% der Uebungsbonuspunkte erreicht hat.
Bedeutet, dass mit 99% erreichter Uebungsbonuspunkte ein 0,3er Sprung locker drin waere, aber eben kein 0,7er, außer man hat Glück und es wird zu seinen Gunsten auf aufgerundet.

Bin ich der einzige, der das etwas unfair findet?

Gruss

So wie ich es verstanden habe wird der bonus linear angerechnet, d.h. 100% sind 0.7, die 0.7 wird dann in Klausurpunkte umgerechnet und mit deinen Prozent multiplitziert, diese werden dann auf die naechsten 0.5 Pkt aufgerundet. Das finde ich dann doch sehr fair

A possible alternative is, that you did not fully understand the bonus system yet... ;)
Course Website hat geschrieben:Maximum-Bonus: You can improve your grade by up to 0.7.

Bonus-System: Students can get bonus points from each exercise. At the end all points are summed up and the percentage of reached points is calculated. It is determined how many points are needed for a 0.7 grade improvement and the percentage is multiplied with this number and rounded to the next 0,5. If the student reaches 25% of all points achievable in the exam the bonus is applied and can even be used to pass the exam.

Example: Consider that three exercises exist, each with 10 bonus points achievable. Consider further that 100 points can be reached in the exam and 9 points are needed to improve a 3.3 to a 2.7, so 30 points from the exercises correspond to 9 bonus points.

A student reached 8, 6 and 7 points in the exercises, which is equivalent to 21/30 = 70%. The student gets 9 * 0.7 = 6.3 -> 6,5 bonus points for the exam. This bonus is applied to the final grade if the student reaches at least 25 points in the exam without the bonus
I cannot tell you the concrete amount of reachable bonus points yet, because the exam is not corrected yet, but they will correspond to a grade improvement of 0.7. Your percentage of reached exercise points is multiplied with this number. I think it is a very fair system, because there are no "steps" at all...

Thanks for the replies which make me believe that I have understood the bonus system correctly.
Yes, the system can be viewed linear regarding the applied points, but it is highly unlinear regarding the grade jumps.

Regarding the grade level jumps, I suppose there are many cases where it doesn't make a difference whether you achieved 80% or 99% of the bonus points. Which is rather unfair from my point of view. Why the effort then, right?

Having said that, my point again is that you are only rewarded with a 0,7 bonus if you reached 100% in your exercises, which is a pretty uncommon policy for these percentage areas. Analogous, I would expect to get the maximum grade , i.e. a 1.0, in the exam ( without bonussystem for the sake of the example) only if you have reached 100% of the exam points.

Hope I made my point clear here.

There are no grade jumps... I really do not get your point, sorry.
