Hey guys,

This petition is meant for students who feel that the short answer questions for PSYC 328 were written vaguely, rather open-ended and even inadequately in that they did not properly express what the professor and TA's expected from the students.

The class average was extremely high for the MC section of the exam, and overall most students displayed a certain level of mastery over the material, and yet, somehow almost 300 people are believed to have answered the short answer portion of the exam poorly and were blamed for not grasping the material and told to do some soul-searching, rather than owning up that the questions were poorly worded and graded unfairly.

Please sign this petition and be sure to include your student number, as well as your issue with the short answer section of the midterm whether it be on the grading or the issue of just how the question is worded. I.e on the question about the From Janet with Love, students were asked to describe coping methods that were displayed from the class material, and yet were then told that we did not receive grades for describing and that we were expected to explain them. This was clearly not what the question asked for, and as such we should not be punished for answering the question as it was asked.

Overall, it is more likely that there is an issue with the questions if almost the entire class had issues answering them to the teacher's satisfaction rather than with the class itself.
