    wouldn’t the difference be a C mid point grade?

    Well, there’s lazy, and then there’s THAT. Peter’s dreaming if he thinks that that shoddy level of effort would put him in even the same universe as a B!

    Were I the teacher… I’d go with the first impression.

    Depends on how well he did on the questions he answered. Life is more about quality than quantity.

    Actually stupid – his plan would be interpolating the others. If he had done 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 – then the rest would be extrapolated.

    thanks, wcorvi, you beat me to it. I expected more from Mr. Amend the mathematician. guess everyone has an off day occasionally.

    I work in quality control in a machine shop…best practice for sampling of a completed lot is to pull X amount out of the box in a completely random fashion :) Or first, every X, and last while in process. 1-5 means he might have made a math error on 5, ran with that line of thinking, and would have flubbed the rest of the test :)

    Did this teacher use the “S” word? That could get him fired in the real world for damaging the student’s self-esteem.

    UNder today’s standards, the answer would be a C, simply because the teachers are not allowed to give anything else, because that would emotionally scar the children.

    I tried something very close to this in my calculas class once. Didn’t work for me either… =(

    How about we leave off the top curve of that “B” and remove the entire bottom part of the curve?

    Let’s put aside, for the moment, that different questions assess different things. Homework is usually at least as much about practice as it is assessment. Besides, in a lot of textbooks, 1-20 is already just a small sample of the questions. Seems silly to take a sample of a sample.

    Split the difference between 0 and 100. That’ll show him.
