Some Thoughts and Options on How to React When You Don’t Like the Grade You Get for a Course

If you think your grade is in error, you should talk to me about it.  I do make errors.  If, however, you just wish your grade was better, you might want to read the following articles first.

 

·         Making the Grade – An article by Dr. Kurt A. Wiesenfeld of Georgia Tech that appeared in Newsweek

·         Begging for Grades - An article by Dr. Karl L. Wuensch of East Carolina University
