I've spent Friday night and Saturday grading exams for both of my classes. I decided to expand my website on guidelines for paper writing. Same old issues, such as starting off papers with dictionary definitions, mixing up alter/altar, Israel/IsrEAl, and improper citation format. Anyway, overall I was pleased with the exams. Several students though didn't seem to study too hard, and turned in exams half blank. Also, in the portion where students wrote papers outside of class, I've had a few turn in downloaded papers, who will fail the assignment. These students usually wind up dropping the course, so in the end I wonder if there are really any repurcussions for plagiarism.
