Operations Management Student Petition
The RIT Croatia students that are currently enrolled in Operations Management class and have taken the final exam on May 15, 2017 would like to sign this petition to encourage the administration and the management of this college to reconsider the final exam, since the exam was not within the scope of the lectures and material covered in classes during the last 15 weeks.
Here is the list of problems that students find critical, especially when comparing the work of prof. Plenkovic with the work of other professors at this school:
- The lectures are unstructured and irrelevant for the course material.
- If there are any problems sets covered in class, they are done in about a few minutes. However, each of those problem sets and other problem sets that are not covered in class, make up about 50% of the exam.
- Prof. Plenkovic’s behavior towards students is not appropriate.
- The classes and the material covered is not organized and what is provided in class is insufficient preparation for exams – especially the final exam which was far more demanding and complex than what was covered in class.
Students are demanding the solution to this problem. One proposal is applying adequate grading scale for the final exam.
