The exam expectations will result in an overall class grade for the exam. This overall grade will be distributed among the students in the class according to how much they contributed to the project. Thus, if the class as a whole performs poorly there will be few or no good grades. It is thus in the best interest of everyone to contribute to the project and to submit/significantly edit (significant meaning to change more than just spelling errors) five or more of the keyword entries. The quality of the wiki and thus everyone's grade will depend on the collective effort of the class.

In the spirit of wiki's, we ask that there be as little spread as possible between the grades, as this is a collaborative effort. If, however, some people contribute dramatically less or more in the project, this should be reflected in their grades.
