Step 3: And then a miracle occurs.
Exam #1. 50 minutes, some short answer questions but mostly half-page to full-page 'essays' (a generous term). Two sections, so 80 or 90 exams to wade through.
Exam is given on Monday.
Wednesday, at the next class meeting, *at least* five students will ask "Have you put grades up on Blackboard yet?" I hate you guys. I can't even imagine what you think I do when I'm not in class. I haven't even managed to wash my hair since the exam.
New stock answer:
"When will our exams be graded by?"
"May, I think?"
I have GOT to figure out how to give Scantron essay exams. "From the following options, pick the least stupid thesis statement for this topic. . ."
Also, a hypothesis: There is a close correlation between the students who are most itching to get written assignments back immediately and students who have cheated somehow.
