Students outside my office, waiting to go into their exam, are discussing whether it is cumulative.
I had a student call today at 1 p.m. to ask if there was extra credit available that he could do. Our final was at 6 p.m. He did not do well on the final. Maybe he should have thought of studying as extra credit…
I started preempting those calls in my syllabus by saying “no extra credit.” What you can do to bring up your grade is send me thesis statements BEFORE you write the essay.
