Subject: Re: curving test scores

If the students really work hard and get a load of high grades, then don't curve it down. Give the kids their good grades as the reward they deserve. However, if the students did not put in the effort and expect to snow you on how to curve it, let them fail or stop at 50%, etc. Never let the class influence how you eventually do or do not curve a grade.
