Question 572:At one university, students are given z-scores at the end of the semester rather than the traditional GPAs. The mean and standard deviation of all students’ cumulative GPAs, on which the z-scores are based, are 2.7 and 0.5 respectively.
c. The president of the university wishes to graduate the top16% of the students with cum laude honors and the top 2.5% with summa cum laude honors. Where (approximately) should the limits be set in terms of z-scores? In terms of GPAs? What assumption, if any, did you make about the distribution of the GPAs at the university?
