I had a student come in today to see her test. She only got two wrong, and she argued that since I misspelled a word on the stem of a question, she should get credit for it because she thought I was trying to trick her.
I told her that was the most ridiculous thing I’d ever heard.
What I wanted to do was tell her to GTFO of my office, because I had a tip from another student on this last test that she and her friend were passing notes during the test. I didn’t catch them, or it would have been a big fat zero. You can bet I’ll have my eye on them from now on.
I hate cheaters even more than I hate point hounds.
