This is frustrating because compared to the sample answers I should have scored significantly better on all but one of them. At this point I'm getting kind of discouraged, and I don't see the point in submitting them for this dude to just give me a 60 and paste stuff from the sample answer as "comments." Anyone else having a similar experience with their grader?
Had similar experience. Simply stopped submitting graded assignments. I figured I don't need some asshole telling me that an essay that isn't a carbon copy of a model answer will not pass.
I'd rather feel like I passed the bar while waiting for the results and then fail, than to feel like I failed the bar and then fail anyway.
