I've got my Biochemistry final to grade (mark), Organic and Biochem labs to grade (mark) and then I am done. I will submit my grades and put this semester behind me... sort of.
Units are important. A number means nothing without units. Understanding units is important. Units will also tell you how to do a problem or at least tell you if you set it up correctly. I require all answers to have units on exams and homework. If not, the student will not get full credit.
I had a student, a good student, lose 8 points on the final exam because she forgot units for two answers. No big deal, right? Sadly, this will mean the difference between an B+ or an A– for the course. If she would have gotten 8 more points on the final she would have gotten an A– instead of a B+.
What do you think? Should I give her the A–?
I'll give you my final decision tomorrow.
