I would like to ask a question about the grading system

If an assignment is done, and it passes all the specifications given, does it mean that you get a 100%? I have submitted 2 problems (I am yet to submit 'credit.c') of problem set 1, and both programs passed the check 50 fully (on all required specifications), but I still got only a 93% and an 81% on the assignments. Is this supposed to happen, and what is the grading criteria to get a 100%?

1 Answer 1


Style matters! From the Syllabus:

Problems are evaluated along axes of correctness (as determined by a program called check50) and style (as determined by a program called style50), with scores ordinarily computed as 3 × correctness + 1 × style.
