My professor finally got around to posting our grades for this past semester, you now now that it is over and I can't use them to improve my future work in the class. She must be one of those teachers who grades on with the no one can have a perfect score philosophy in mind. I'm ending my first graduate course with an A so that is great, but here are some of my scores.

4.5 out of 5 for a quiz

14.95 out of 15 for my midterm

8.8 out of 10 for an assignment

24.25 out of 25 for a paper

19.6 out of 20 for my final

I feel like deducting .4 points is more trouble then anything, like did she really find something to take a sliver off of or is she just randomly removing points? Just mark it as a 19 out of 20 if I can't have a 20. I don't understand it. I get the 4.5 out of 5, half a point off makes sense but 14.95 out of 15?!
