I'm covering an English class at the continuation high school for two weeks. Their teacher retired. So, that means I have to make sure the assignments get graded and recorded. Which hasn't been too difficult since the majority of the classes aren't bothering to attempt the assignments.
On Friday I was caught up with the grading. I had returned the papers to the students. I explained that any papers that hadn't gotten over 70% weren't getting credit. (This is the policy of the school. They can redo and resubmit for credit.) Alas, the two girls who had completed the assignment had only gotten 30% correct.
One of the girls, after I had explained said, "Wait. You're grading this?"
Um, yeah. What did she expect? Why would I give an assignment and not check it for completeness and accuracy?
Deep sigh. I guess she just wanted me to give her credit for writing words on paper. But that's not how I roll.
