36-315 Revision Policy
After graded homeworks are returned, you have one week to revise it and
possibly improve your grade. The purpose is to reward you for learning
from your mistakes and filling in any gaps in your knowledge.
What to turn in
Turn in your graded homework and your revisions of the questions you missed.
The revision does not replace the original grade, instead the two are
averaged together. For example, an original grade of 75 and a perfect
revision would make your grade 88. Revision does not replace doing well
the first time. For example, you cannot get a perfect score unless your
original grade was perfect (in which case you wouldn't need a revision).

Revisions must be perfect. If there is any question wrong on a revision,

have to fix, the less likely you are to have a perfect revision.
