3. ESSAY QUESTION: Student X writes an excellent paper and gets an A. Student Y writes a poor paper but takes advantage of the offer made to all students in the class that they may rewrite their paper as many times as they wish. After several rewrites (responding to the teachers comments each time), student Y finally produces a paper that is as good as student X’s original paper. Is it appropriate for them both to receive the same grade? Does that send a misleading message to external audiences?
7. TRUE OR FALSE?: Although many teachers say that they want students to learn higher order mastery of the material (such as understanding and applying the material), they often grade their students on material that is less significant but easier to grade.
