B Is The New C

His professor sent him an e-mail the following day:

Dear Michael,

Every year I attempt to boost my students’ final grades by giving them this relatively simple exam consisting of 100 True/False questions from only 3 chapters of material. For the past 20 years that I have taught Intro Communications 101 at this institution I have never once seen someone score below a 65 on this exam. Consequently, your score of a zero is the first in history and ultimately brought the entire class average down a whole 8 points.

There were two possible answer choices: A (True) and B (False). You chose C for all 100 questions in an obvious attempt to get lucky with a least a quarter of the answers. It’s as if you didn’t look at a single question. Unfortunately, this brings your final grade in this class to failing. See you next year!

May God have mercy on your soul.

Sincerely,
Professor William Turner

P.S. If all else fails, go with B from now on.
B is the new C

    His epic failure turned into an epic win for our amusement.

    No test should be able to be graded on these stupid forms. Every time I’ve had to give federal and state tests, at least 2 students get their name wrong. Every class test I gave, I made up. I’ve made some doozy mistakes too.

    Oh and there’s always 1 student that likes to fold the corners so the sheets get jammed in the scanner.

    I have no sympathy for anyone too lazy to make a cheatsheet! I may not have earned my BA but I sure as hell deserved it! :p

    my favorite students are the ones that don’t write their student numbers on the sheet, or don’t write the section number of the course, or otherwise screw up the directions. i correct them and send them to the data-crunching overlords who ask me questions about the forms two years later.

    “may god have mercy on your soul” – great teacher comment.

    I didn’t know schools still used those.

    The only time I ever saw one was during high school when they did school wide aptitude tests.

    A university using those seems weird.

    ^^This.
    I had a couple of university classes over the years that used them, Psy 101 comes to mind. In High School, I used them when proctoring aptitude tests (couldn’t think of the name in my earlier post, derp) and, in general, I find those tests to be pretty silly too. If high schools, and their teachers, would actually educate, these kinds of tests would be moot.

    I filled out a ScanTron with a Number 3 pencil my freshman year in high school. I had about the same results, and the teacher wouldn’t regrade the test. FML

    He obviously did it on purpose. It clearly says T and F
