Grading foursomes

I began the semester with 36 students in two courses. Grades go in today. Look at all the fours! Unfortunately, WIU doesn’t have plus/minus grading, or I would have assigned five B+ and two C+ grades.

A: 4
B: 11
C: 4
F: 5
U: 4
W: 4
early drops: 4

The “U” is a non-punitive grade assigned in composition courses, basically “failed while trying”; no credit but it doesn’t count in GPA. W grades are drops after the add/drop date.

Anybody got “four” puns to spare?

    Ah, grading. As I recall, that was always my favorite part of the normalization and discipline process.
