CS 205: Data Driven Discovery published "GPAs of Every Course at The University of Illinois" last semester, a visualization made course GPA data much more transparent. However, it did little to help narrow down courses within one or more general education categories. This visualization, developed by a group of students from CS 205, is the result of the work done to solve that need using GPA data from Fall 2017 through Summer 2020 (Data updated on Nov. 20, 2020).


The larger the course, the larger the radius of the circle.
The lower the average GPA or the percentage of As, the more red hue is added to the color.

General Education Categories

Choose a gen ed category to narrow the visualization below to only courses matching all gen eds selected. Multiple gen eds may be selected to view courses that meet multiple gen ed categories.
