Today in class we had a clicker quiz. There were a couple of questions that a few students got wrong; a couple of the more vocal ones insisted that their (wrong) answer was correct. I reminded them that, as always, if they could email me after class with evidence from the textbook supporting their answer, I would give them the point.
Conveniently for them, the associated page number was displayed on the overhead along with the correct answer. As this was an open-note test, all they had to do was jot down the question and the page number to refer to later.
Apparently, one of my students wrote down the page numbers but forgot to write down the questions.
So right after class he sent me this email:
Hi Dr. Clicker,
Would you be able to send the questions that we could write an appeal to on page 227 and 298?
Q: Fellow Miserians, what would you do?
