Saturday Tally

I'm so far behind in my grading that it's shameful.

Today and tomorrow, I'm working on catching up:

Here's the list of what I've finished so far today:

Set of quizzes
Set of peer editing responses
Set of presentations
Set of presentation responses
A few short papers (in response to activities; they come in at different times)

It looks pretty minimal set out this way. Here's what's left to grade:

Set of short papers from seminar
11 more research papers from first year class (5 done!)
Several presentations from seminar
A few more short papers (in response to activities; they come in at different times) (all done!)
A set of journals Done!

Probably other stuff I haven't sorted through yet. :(

I found a set of revisions to grade.
I also have to write a letter of recommendation.

I also have to record the grades I've got.


  1. Ugh. I'm sorry you have to spend your weekend with all that work. But I think most teaching types are in the same boat. One of my friends on the east coast put on Facebook that she wants to start a grading support group -- you know, a gathering in which teaching friends sit and grade together. I think I could use something like that, if for no other reason than it would get me to sit down with my work instead of dreading it for several more hours than it takes to actually DO it. Sigh...

  2. I'm starting to think it wouldn't be a "vacation" without grading. Sigh. I've got a set of response papers, a set of analysis papers and a set of projects that, alone, will take me most of tomorrow. And I have letters, too.

    Good luck to us and everyone in the same boat!
