I read this before and what a shock! Seriously who came up with the evaluation plan?? It really looks like there was one level of thought on this and then thrown on whomever and they just drew straws instead of taking the time to plan it out.
I had a class that amazed me last year. They did great in class, with homework, and on projects but so many blundered at tests. I guess I would be a sour apple in the bunch if that is how I was evaluated!
I really feel for those being evaluated on a subject they don't even teach! It is really hard to believe this is what is in practice!

Hi Amanda!

I am a newbie blogger and I was wondering if you would take a few minutes to look at my blog and give me some tips.
