Grading base on Lawyer-Like Analysis

Postby 1LFTW » Thu Jun 10, 2010 4:48 pm

I'm currently enrolled in a summer contract course. Our midterm is about 3 weeks away. Our professor told us today that he's going to grade our exams base on our ability to perform lawyer-like analysis. What does that mean exactly? How do you prepare for something that's so arbitrary.

My friend said she'll give me her LEEWS.

Should I just go with that instead of GTM?

Also my prof just mentioned that he's not planning on giving any A's. So the highest grade will be A-.

Some students say it's because he doesn't want to give out C's. Does this make any sense?
