How are grades calculated for this Q&A

+12 votes
Hi everyone, it says in our syllabus that part of our grade is from the Q&A section, how is that calculated?  By points, medals, or how many people it actually helped?

The grading scale for Q&A participation is written right there in the syllabus!

Q & A Website Participation    5%
Q&A grading scale: A >= 2000 > B >= 1500 > C >= 1000 > D >= 500 > F

I suppose those numbers could mean "metals" or "number of people helped".  But if that were true, then everyone in the class is destined to fail.  So you can safely assume that "points" was intended for the unspecified units...
