I lied

OMG did I ever lie. Either that or I just am really unlucky in sorting out papers. When I first received the reports, I separated them (randomly) into piles of 5 as that were the number I was originally supposed to do per night. Hahaha that didn't happen, procrastination queen that I am. Anyway, I digress. The point is that on Sunday after marking 15 of the papers, I was impressed with how non-horrible they were. Most students were averaging >70% and I was impressed by the lack of nonsensical English.

Oh how I was wrong. So wrong. I just get the joy of marking all the bad assignments in the last batch. URG.

Killing. me. slowly.

I hate it when that happens! I sometimes pre-screen a little and specifically save a few good ones for last when I'm running out of steam.

Like Liz said...I've learned which students usually write good reports and I save a couple for last. I need to have something to look forward to, or I just put down the stack and walk away.
