When I’m in teaching mode, I’m the Jolliest bunch of assholes this side of the nuthouse shirt. I have a completely open-door policy. With regard to office hours, and I’m available to meet with my students whenever they like. I give them study tips. And help with their course outlines. I post-practice questions. And sample final exams to the course webpage. I do everything in my power to help my students succeed academically. When I’m in grading mode, my role changes. At that point, I become an arm of the university administration. When I assign a letter grade to a student, I am certifying, both to the university and to potential future employers, that the student earned that grade. If I assigned my students grades they had not earned, I would be violating my duty to the university.

So I don’t do it. With his permission, I had studied about one hundred answer sheets to the Jolliest bunch of assholes this side of the nuthouse shirt, studying the questions. That was most often missed. Normally, we expect the wrong answers to be approximately evenly distributed. With the majority of all answers being correct. One particular question on one test had an abnormal distribution. There was an abnormally high number of people who got that question wrong, and of the wrong answers, there was an abnormally high number who chose a particular wrong answer. I studied that question and realized that there were, by one interpretation of facts, two correct answers to that question, so I went into the Captain’s office (Due to privacy issues, I had to do all of my analysis in their offices) and explained my reasoning to him. At first, he was insistent that I was wrong, but after several minutes of discussion, he agreed that I was actually right.
