I swear, I just submitted the most I’ll conveievd paper I’ve ever written, and literally threw it together, and received a 98. Contrast that to the entire day that a I spent writing a solid psychology paper that earned a 78 LOL With that, I’m only down to the capstone and info lit class for my TESU BALS, so, I’ll take it Smile

I tried to avoid going to extra depth (which is a challenge for me since I tend to be overly detailed) and just turned in the minimum required. I usually scored in the 90s, so this approach pays off.

I feel that in both of my cases, it didn't work. But it's possible one grader would have stuck to the rubric if I had written less.

I know I'm crazy late on this thread, but I'm working on my essay for Psychology 312 and have noticed my essays coming back with late 70's as well, even though I have always stuck to the rubric. Hell, I have always had straight 10's for my APA format writing, but they always nitpick over stuff that I did explain. I'm just thankful this is my last UL course.

On my English assignments for just the basic Comp 1 and 2, I got some seriously nitpicky, over-the-top graders. However for my business courses I felt they were fine. My guess is that the people they hire to grade the gen ed classes are maybe fresh out of college themselves and feel like they have to 'prove' they are good graders by being excessively picky.

Yeah, I’m getting that same vibe.  It’s great and all for practicing my writing skills for the Capstone, but at the same time, it’s frustrating when I work so hard on an essay, only to receive a 78%.  I just get upset over the notes to justify their grade since they usually claim I “need improving” on a specific topic when I devoted multiple paragraphs and more to thoroughly explaining something.  Thankfully, our grades don’t show on the transcript, so it’s whatever.  I just hope my Capstone Instructor isn’t like this.

Well the Capstone instructor will be a 'real' professor employed by TESU, whereas the Study graders are people who may or may not even be professors. So I think probably it will be a different experience.

The study.com graders just destroy my projects. It's insane how low they score! Luckily I've always done well enough on the quizzes and exams to pass every course so far. I'll be glad when I'm done with them.
