I am almost certain the grizz can beat them now. Houston is alright but not that good

re: 5 former hornets in tonights grizz vs. clippers game


I'll try to watch tonight. But I got a lot of studying to get done and if I take a break for any game it'll probably be the baseball game. That being said, frick the Clippers



Oh and I guess I was wrong, OKC is not good without Westbrook

i'm just starting to study for finals right now


I busted my arse for our 2nd round of midterms a couple of weeks ago and stressed myself out so bad that after I got my grades back I almost dropped out of grad school. I missed the next 2 classes contemplating quitting then I found out the averages and went back.

in my macro class the average on the exam was a 42% and in my econometrics class the grades were so bad a 62% was an A. I know it's grad school and supposed to be difficult but I don't understand how professors can justify this. it has to look bad on them

I'm just starting to study too, but I'm not in grad school



And I know what you're talking about with the grading. Doesn't make any sense

Another perspective: what's wrong with 62% being an A. If you won 62% of even paying bets, you'd be the richest man in the world. If you get on base 33% of the time, you are a great MLB batter.

To me, a midterm exam is to tell you what you know and what you failed to absorb so you can adjust and focus for the final.

As long as the highest grades are A's and people who did better get a better grade, the number is unimportant, right?

if you get an A getting damn near half the test wrong it is not proving that you have learned anything. it is not showing a mastering of the material. either the teacher needs to do a better job of teaching or make the test reasonable so you can actually interpret how much the students are learning.

our professor was telling us about a class where a 7% ended up being an A. how can you honestly evaluate a students progress enough with that kind of grade to see if they are learning and comprehending the material? then you send them on to the next course in the sequence not knowing if they are prepared

eta: also having extremely low scores should be a reflection on the teacher. in my macro class the average will end up being probably around between 40-50% in the course. what is the point of making the test that difficult? it is very hard to evaluate how you are as a professor. you may not be explaining the material clearly but you just give A's to a few people even with below 50% and refuse to acknowledge it may be you that is the problem. this has been going on for multiple semesters with the same professor

re: 5 former hornets in tonights grizz vs. clippers game


It depends.

I think you are assuming the ooint of a class is to open up a box of knowledge and for the stundents to glutton themselves on it.

Another possibilty is that you learn some material and are tested on material you have not specifically learned, but rather learned related information. In that case you apply existing knowledge to a new problem and make mistakes. How many and what kind being key, witg what kind being more important.

This is much more like a job or academic environment than the knowledge eating contest model.

Thoughts?

when each semester is a cumulative sequence based on the last the teacher should feel some responsibility on preparing them for the next class. if you make the test so they make lots of mistakes it may be hard to distinguish those that get the material from those who are lost. failing to prepare them properly for an exam falls on the teacher when scores are this low. a good teacher would not feel comfortable sending students on with terrible scores just because they wanted to make it difficult. one bad teacher can screw up your entire grad program if they didn't prepare you correctly, especially with the mathematical difficulty present in economics

i'm not trying to conceal it. i am a grizz bandwagoner loud and proud. it started with my hatred of flop city last year when i watched their series and i became impressed. now this year they will finish them off unlike last year and i will be forever grateful and a proud fan

I fully believe that the preparedness of a student for the next class or job is the true measure of an educator, given a typical student in the level, typical work ethic, etc.

Correct.

The idea that ALL of the material in class n is necessary for class n+1 is just not true, especially in process-based disciplines like econ (or math). In fact, in math tests normall consist of problems a student has never seen. They are like familiar problems, but they are new.

last remark then we need to let this go it's not the place for it

so far in my grad school especially in macro you start of with basic models and they build on top of each other and loosen restrictions to become progressively more difficult. the classes that i have taken n+1 is a continuation of n where assumptions are relaxed and models build upon each other. you drop the ball in one class the next one will end you
