Not bad.  An average of 58 is not bad for exam #3.  Exam #3
traditionally is "the killer" and we are still alive.

Of the students who took exams #1, #2 and #3, only 4 have managed
to keep or improve their scores from test to test.  Congratulations 
to the few of you!  
 
In the last semester, the averages dropped from 68 in exam #1, 
to 58 in exam #2, and then to 52 in exam #3.  We started high
with 77 in exam #1, dropped very much to 61 in exam #2, and
now we dropped a little more to 58 in exam #3.  We stay well
above last semester! 

Scores fluctuate a lot between exams #2 and #3; some students
improved by as many as 25 points while others dropped as much 
as 36 points.  

Considering the points you obtained for the online media training
and your participation in the habits analysis, the class average
after three exams is 68 percent.  This is a high C+; B- starts
at 70 percent.

Best, RG.
