I agree wholeheartedly! its damn unfair if u ask me.
: Yes, i agree...how many hours did i spend on Hwk4 to recieve less than a 50??? I seriously hope that the professors consider normalizing all of the TA's homework averages. It is not fair for one student to recieve a lesser grade simply because he got shafted with a strict TA.
: : Now that a TA rotation was made, I can understand why some of my friends have been complaining about unfair grading. I realized today while demo'ing that some TA's follow the checklist like a Bible, and some do not. And the grading on HW 4 design varied immensly. I looked at a friends design, which was equally good, if not better than mine and his was given 20 LESS points then mine. Before someone says, "this is college"...let me say that the fact we are taking a collegiate level course doesn't justify unfairness in grading. There is a communication gap somewhere and the unlucky pay for it.
