Charles M. "Charlie" Williams on grading exams
But the only way I could do the exams was to take them home, risk losing them and, in a sense, lock myself in my study and do 30 a day. That's a week, 7 days. And awfully hard to keep from blurring and what not. And also from the first 20 or so you've got a good and unique approach you'd tend to mark it up, but after 150 there were no new approaches.
So I didn't agonize. One of my colleagues used to fret over the margins, and reread them, and torture himself. But once was enough. And I read on overall presentation, coherence of point of view, rather than on taking up for one point, and down for a bad one.
