Grades Going Into Final Exam

January 10, 2016 1 comment

Here are the class grades, with all adjustments made (except for bonus points–none are added here yet) including adjustments for excused absences.

As I have said many times before, these grades represent 30 data points–30 scores you have earned over the semester! It is highly unlikely that there will be any significant changes to the letter grades based on the final exam. So, do your best, but it’s time to accept that the clock is down to the final seconds. If the score is close, you might make a three-point shot. But don’t expect a miracle.

More Evidence of Cheating

November 16, 2015 Leave a comment

This time it was on JaLaine’s midterm exam.

She gave two different versions of the same test, with just the order of the questions rearranged.

Several students obviously cheated. Here’s an example, where all of the answers on the blue test are exactly the same as all the answers on the green test–and all are wrong! These two students were seated next to each other. The cheating student even copied the wrong answers of the student with the green test paper.

26 and 27

Here’s another example:

46 and 47

The answers on the blue test are all incorrect–and all match exactly the answers on the green test of the student in the next seat.

To the students who care about academic integrity: you must help us drive this out of your class. It will destroy your class morale. It will destroy your teachers’ motivation to create high quality classes.

Marginalize them. Encourage them to transfer to another program or university. Make it clear that you do not respect their lack of integrity.

There has to be a cost for this–an academic cost, and a social cost.

Evidence of Cheating

October 14, 2015 Leave a comment

I had a photocopy made of today’s quiz while I was lecturing. At the end of class, I had the students grade their own quizzes, after reminding them repeatedly to grade with integrity.

Unfortunately, 17 students changed something on their papers–some changed many answers–and marked the changed answer or answers “correct,” increasing their scores.

For example, here’s the original paper with C and D blank, and a wrong answer for E:

And here’s the same paper after the student graded it, with answers added to C and D, and E changed:

Here is a second example, of a paper that was turned in with only one correct answer, everything else blank:

01 Before

And here’s the same paper after the student “graded” it:

01 After

In the third example, the student would have scored 4 out of 6…

03 Before

…but couldn’t resist changing the first answer, and adding the second answer during grading:

03 After

Not a good move.
