Any Penn students here who were in this
Corporations class? Wow, talk about awful options:
We are left with a problem concerning the results of the exam. I have discussed the matter with Deans Fitts and Clinton.
We have agreed on the following protocol:
A) The results of Monday’s test will be graded based only on the essay question. Each of you will receive an email in the middle the next week that reports this grade to you.
B) Once you receive this report of your grade, you will have three choices as to how to proceed: 1) Accept that grade as your grade in the course; 2) Take the grade of Pass for the course; or 3) Take a retest to be administered on Friday afternoon, January 14, 2011.
C) If you choose to take the retest, your grade for the course will be the higher of your grade on the retest and your grade on the original test. The retest will follow exactly the same format as the original test—one-third multiple choice; two-thirds essay; time of three and one-half hours.
I would be seething if the exam that I crushed myself studying for was wiped out because of my professor's laziness/incompetence. How are you supposed to retake an exam? I barely remember anything from my first semester courses, and the exams were only month ago!
