An excerpt of my day as I returned a test to students:
Student: I am so tired of failing tests, I can’t stand this any more
Me: That’s great to hear, I’d be happy to help you out however I can. Make sure you keep up with things and come see me when you have questions, especially right before the next test.
Student: No, that’s not what I mean. You need to make the tests easier from now on. I shouldn’t have to work any harder than what I’m doing already. What are you going to do so I don’t fail?
