Did anyone else catch the totally false statement at the end of the evaluation email???
"be aware that the same deductions were applied to all students" - barnette
ok, i respect this man, but that's just politically correct BS!
a more true statement would be:
"be aware that the same deductions were applied to the other students sharing your TA"
yes, i'm bitching (before mquain needlessly points that out). The fact is, the grading in this course was unfair.
Now, I must admit I believe that Mcquain and Barnette tried to assure fairness while setting up the class structure (grading checklists, etc), however they did a poor job of monitoring throughout, and the TAs should have been rotated 3x rather than once.
sure life is usually unfair, but that doesn't justify anything.
