A Dynamic Approach To Grading The Exam

| Learning | February 2, 2016

(In my physics major we take a big exam junior year about everything we’ve had so far. The standard test questions are on traditional thermodynamics, but my year had had a course on statistical thermodynamics instead. In classic bureaucratic mix-up fashion, we’re told the test will still be normal thermo and cram like mad, while one of the teachers puts in extra hours making new stat thermo questions. That doesn’t end well for anyone.)

Scores Announcement: “We are aware of the mix-up regarding the thermodynamics portion of the exam and apologize for the difficulties. Re-takes of that portion will not be allowed, however we would like to note that for ‘totally unrelated reasons’ a score of 0 is the minimum passing grade for that section this year.”
