We would like to bring your attention to the following problem(s)-

  1. Professor Gorsky has neglected the students of ENG102EC by not grading a majority of our assignments in a timely fashion.
    1. Professor Gorsky has only graded 3 out of the 8 assignments that he has assigned since the beginning of the semester are graded as of 12/1/2015 (2:34 PM)
      1. i.e. Self-Authorship paper - Due 9/11/15 - Graded - Week of 11/22/2015
    2. Additional grades have been added to our cumulative grade, but this grade was automated; via when a peer review for papers is completed.
  2. Professor Gorsky "apologized" (while reviewing the guidelines to our final paper for the course) for not grading our assignments and papers throughout the semester. He added "It's not an excuse but I took on an extra class this semester". He promised to have papers graded over Thanksgiving Break but only graded a total of 2 papers.
    1. The majority of the papers in which he graded had little to no comments or marks on how the student performed.

We, the petitioners, feel that Professor Gorsky’s neglect when it comes to grading our papers has been a disservice his students.

We do fear that Professor Gorksy has too much to grade by the end of the semester and our grades will not be judged fairly.

We also fear that Professor Gorksy will be critical of mistakes which could have been prevented if assignments and papers were graded in a timely fashion.

We request that the English Department at Montgomery Community College “step in” to alleviate our concerns and ensure academic fairness when assessing the grades for the students in ENG102EC.
