Marking post - the fifth.

4:08pm: Been marking the first short answer for the past hour (the only required one). It's not going well. Basically, all they need to do is recite a fairly prominent paragraph from the book, or go out on a limb and (if they're good) come up with something clever of their own. Most are just flailing.

5:00pm: First short answer done. Onto the next.

5:33pm:And that one's done. Average grade on it was a B -- not bad. Onto the next.

6:22pm:And that's that one. Average was a C -- not so great, but, generally, it was sloppily done. If you're asked to define two concepts, make sure you define them! Onto the next one... after a little break.
