Yep. One problem here is that our students are about 50% non-traditional and that part of the poplulation takes a long time to complete a 4-year degree. Most of them have two or three kids at home and work in addition to going to school. I feel bad for them. I don't know how the grad students do it. I routinely put in 18-20 hour days in grad school and there is no way I could have done that with a family.



As for the rest, well to paraphrase Judge Roy Bean "They were lazy rascals and I have flunked them for it." I've experimented with several grading systems in very large classes over the past 12 years and have data to show that no matter what you do students will distribute themselves in a Gaussian manner with an average grade of "C"



Right now I am in the bargaining for points phase of the semester so I am in a generally surly mood. I can't wait to get back to the track next week and work off some frustration.



cheers

Dude, I can't see you in a "surly mood". You already know I have that covered, and then some. Maybe I rubbed off on ya! LOL

they didn't arrest him? wonder if he'd dumped a cop from his hood or some old blue haired grandma if they'd have arrested the goofy sob? many states have a procedure to contact dps(typically on a written report form) and ask for a license review on grounds of incompetency or inability to safely operate the vehicle, can get people's licenses revoked or cancelled..sounds like this loose screw needs that kind of attention.
