Disagreement with GERO3326 marking philosophy
Myself and a couple of my fellow class mates have all felt that our grades received weren’t true reflections of our work and effort put forth on our assignments. We also disagree with the marking philosophy, as it was 1) posted after the due dates of both/all assignments 2) it implies that real a “A” or 90% is not achievable in gerontology 3) the marking criteria lacks any specifications toward the actual assignments and no rubrics were provided for the assignments. This petition is not intended to lower the required efforts put forth to achieve an A or 90, but it is intended to make receiving a 90 a possibility if sufficient and fair work is to be put forth. We all work hard and expect encouraging results that motivate us to continue our hard work, and a fair assessment should be given to us in return.
