Gotta give them credit for not only coming up with the scheme, but holding to it. And props for the professor for not being a douche about it either.
Pinkos the lot of them
Yup. I doubt it could have been handled much better.
Yeah, but these assholes could have fucked it up for everyone who takes the class in the future if he decided to throw out the curve grading system.
It seems like they put more energy into this than just taking the stupid test.
college kids are stupid
I would have answered one question correctly to fuck the whole curve up.
Working at a university has taught me that students will spend more energy getting out of doing something rather than just doing it.
I disagree with that grading style. To me, an A means mastery of the subject. B means superior than average. C means acceptable knowledge of a subject. D means barely acceptable. An F means you've failed to grasp fundamentals.
Grading on a curve is nice if you're a student but I'd rather know the high priced professional actually mastered the subject matter and wasn't the brightest bulb in a pack of dullards for that semester.
We'd all like to think we'd be that guy, but none of us would.
The only thing stopping me is the nagging suspicion that someone else would answer two questions.
What would happen if he tried to figure the grade by dividing by zero?
Pretty sure they could've wasted their college tuitions without learning anything whatsoever just fine individually too. I wonder what the marks, ahem parents who paid for this, think about this great achievement.
Grading on a curve is retarded. Colleges need to ban the practice. Or, even better, just patiently wait to see which teacher uses it, and then fire them all.
At MIT grading on a curve is banned on principle. The reason they give is almost word for word what you just said.
So he is no longer the Sausage King of Chicago?
