Early Returns

So yes, I pulled papers that I though might be problematic on first glance, and moved them to the top of the pile, but after 6 papers from this first batch, I have 2 Fs, 2 Ds, a C-minus, and a plagiarized paper.

Here's hoping I pulled all of the problem papers!

ETA: After 4 more papers, add another D, another F, and two B range papers (finally!) Sadly, I don't think I'm done with the D/F papers...

ETA, again: Halfway through the batch and the average grade is still only a high D. Uggh. Fortunately, I think the next paper on the stack'll be an A

Funny -- I try to read the best ones first, so that I can get a feel for the high end of the spectrum.

These can't be the London class papers, can they?

No, not the London papers...I'd be shocked if they were that low...that's a pretty strong bunch of students, there. This is a survey class, and one of the weakest classes I've taught inre cent memory, despite some very strong individual students. I can say that I just finished reading a paper that was in fact stronger than I would have guessed, so the whole thing's not a wash.
