The columns of this table are
Column 0 = grad/undergrad
       1 = id number
       2 = first exam
       3 = second exam
       4 = first homework 
       5 = second homework
       6 = third homework
       7 = fourth homework
       8 = fifth homework
       9 = project diary score
      10 = project documentation
      11 = project basic functionality
      12 = project advanced networking component
      13 = total score
The total score in column 13 is computed by the following formula
total = roundup( 0.4 * [(e1+e2)/2] +
                 0.15 * [(h1+h2+h3+h4+h5)/2.5] +
                 0.45 * [p1+p2+p3+p4] )

Grading Curves

There are separate grading curves for undergraduates and graduate students. First, the undergraduate curve:

Grade curve (mean total score = 70, std dev = 10)

UG = 43 55 56 68 70 70 71 74 74 75 75 76 76 78 81 83 C- C C B B B B A A A A A A A A A

Second, the graduate student grades:
Grade curve (mean total score = 77, std dev = 14)

GS = 36 65 72 75 76 79 81 81 87 87 87 87 89 I B- B B B B B+ B+ A A A A A
