For those returning to school .. an inside look at how professors
grade their final exams:
Dept Of Statistics:
All grades are plotted along the normal bell curve.
Dept Of Psychology:
Students are asked to blot ink in their exam books, close them and
turn them in. The professor opens the books and assigns the first
grade that comes to mind.
Dept Of History:
All students get the same grade they got last year.
Dept Of Religion:
Grade is determined by God.
Dept Of Philosophy:
What is a grade?
Students are asked to defend their position of why they should receive
Dept Of Mathematics:
Grades are variable.
(alt: Grades will be differentiated among the students)
Dept Of Logic:
If and only if the student is present for the final and the student
has accumulated a passing grade then the student will receive an A
else the student will not receive an A.
Dept Of Computer Science:
Random number generator determines grade.
Each student must figure out his grade by listening to the instructor
play the corresponding note (+ and - would be sharp and flat
Dept Of Physical Education:
Everybody gets an A.
HAND!Have A Nice Day
And let's not forget:
Department of Sociology:
Grade is determined by the statistically normed mean of the grades
of everyone else in the class.
Department of Norwegian:
All grades have funny accent marks. Or Groucho Marx.
Department of Political Science:
Grade is determined not by what you know, but by who you know.
Department of Education:
Grade will be determined by how far you can recite the alphabet
backwards. Wherever you stop, that's your grade.
Department of Biochemisty (genetics program):
Everyone either gets a D, an N, or an A.
