Cassie From Callicoon With Today's Snowflake Email.
For reasons too complicated to explain, I'm giving my Hamsterology 101 final exam as an online take-home. We have a course website with an Assignment Dropbox link, and I, kind and gentle proffie that I am, recently posted a "mock exam" there so that the snowflakes could test out how the system works (you download the exam, type in your answers, and upload the completed exam back to the site). I told them all to test out the mock exam before May 1 so they'd be comfortable using the online system, and that if they didn't run this test before the exam period and then had technical problems, they'd be on their own.
May 1 passes, and, despite numerous in-class and online reminders, some students still haven't run the test. So I send one last missive to the outliers.
Here's what I get back:
"Hey Prof, I was trying to do the practice exam submission but I couldn't find it on the course website's dropbox. Is it not there anymore?"
"That's odd," I reply. "What do you see when you click on the Dropbox link?"
"It says Testing: Mock Final Exam. Is that the practice exam?"
