Public Service Announcement 1

Whatever you do, don’t grade midterms at 0200 when you’re too tired to see straight. You do the math all wrong, and your students get bent completely out of shape. Particularly when they can’t figure out how they got 50 marks on an exam that only had 40 questions.

You just don’t want to go there.

  1. I chalk up computation errors to “the English teacher trying to do math.” Then I assure them that I use a calculator when I compute final grades… They usually look relieved.

  2. Tell them to take a statistics class. I’m sure they could spin 50 into 40 real easy! After all, you’re not there to teach math, right? I keed I keed! 0200 is just the shank of the evening, after all. Why would anyone be tired?
