Exam Feedback

Postby LawSchoolHelp2 » Mon Feb 04, 2013 12:34 am

I asked a professor for feedback on an exam. The exam was in an area in which I am very interested. I wanted feedback that I thought would be helpful in the future. I phrased the email in a, "Your feedback would be very helpful so I can improve in the future" sort of way.

I was ignored. Is it okay to send another email?

First, I feel it's your duty as a professor to provide help when asked. Second, I spend $50k a year that goes toward your salary, the least you can do is help when asked.

Or...is it rude to send a polite follow-up email?

Thanks.

Go to their office hours. They're probably not going to write something out for you in an e-mail when they can sit down and talk with you about it.

(Also, depends a little on when your semester started - profs are always crazy busy at the beginning of a new semester and it's easy to let something fall through the cracks.)

Thanks. I asked whether email or in person would be better. Not sure when office hours are, but I can try to find out.

You can contact their faculty assistant. (Or if they're teaching this semester and they have a syllabus online, it should list the office hours, although they don't always.)
