||Midterm 1 statistics:
N=237, mean=17.71, median=17, histogram
If grades are predicted by scaling all points equivalently, the grade
28 A (25-30), 25 B (23-24), 28 C (21-22), 36 D (18-20), 120 F.
But it's more realistic to predict that most people will score better
on homework and projects than on exams, leading to this distribution:
38 A (24-30), 50 B (20-23), 63 C (16-19), 54 D (12-15), 32 F.
This assumes that everyone gets 30/30 homework points and 50/60 project
points. You can make your own prediction based on your own numbers.
Before complaining about your exam grade, read
your TA will regrade your exam only if you show where your paper was not
graded according to these standards. We will not entertain arguments that
we should have given more partial credit to a particular answer!
||BH's office hour Tues 10-11a is moving to Tues 1-2p.

Question 0 (1 point): Your name, class login,
TA's name, discussion section number.
||Midterm 2 statistics:
N=222, median=23, mean=22.36
A B C D F median
proportional 79 39 38 37 29 B-
optimistic 107 62 36 12 5 B
MT1 and MT2 combined: median=41, mean=40.7
proportional 39 37 30 55 61 D+
optimistic 58 61 73 23 7 B
Optimistic assumes 30/30 on hw, 50/60 on projects. This is probably
much closer to the truth than the simple proportional scaling of scores.

linked to the calender. |
The HALT instruction has it "op" field (bit positions 26-31 all 1's). The original
handout mistakenly said "func" instead of "op".
Also, the code for the recommended CPU test-bench can be copied from ~cs61c/lib/proj6/testbench.v.
