I've finished grading, finally.
I get frustrated by the late stuff that comes in, even legitimately (because of, say, health problems). I don't blame the student, but it's a pain to have extra stuff to grade at the last minute.
And then it seems there's always one class where there's a problem, some confusion. This year it's an exam. I can't find a student's exam. And I can't remember if the student was at the final, but zie is one of those students who didn't miss a single class during the semester. And the exam is in two parts, and I have neither part. And the student hasn't emailed.
So now instead of submitting grades tonight, I'm going to go to campus in the morning and search my office to see if somehow I dropped it in there. If not, I'll send the student an email. (I've already searched the room where I was grading.
If I were missing one part, I'd be convinced I'd misplaced the other. But it seems unlikely that I'd missplace both parts, doesn't it?
But this student is very responsible. I hope zie is okay, and wasn't hurt in an accident or something.
