** Extra Credit: Nutrition Study Groups**

To encourage students to study together in groups, study groups of 3 or
4 students can be formed. How the study group functions is decided upon by its
members. Extra credit is based upon how the group as a whole performs on each
exam. If the average score is between 70% and 79% , then each member of that
group receives an additional 1% to each of their scores for that exam. If the
average score is between 80% and 89%, then each member receives an additional
3%. If the average score is between 90% and 100%, then each member receives an
additional 4%. No extra credit is awarded if the average score is less than 70%.
