The turnaround time for assignments in my business concepts class has always been 1 week. If something is due today, whether it’s an assignment or a test, we’ll always get it back the very next class which is the following week.
We handed in the group assignment last Tuesday. It’s the assignment that caused much anger and controversy amongst the group members. Some did next to nothing, others tried to do something and it simply wasn’t enough and/or correct…while some (me!) busted our humps trying to get a good mark.
When we got to class, the professors put the assignments at the front of the class and instructed the “group leader” to go up and retrieve our group assignment. I went to the front of the class and scanned the cover pages of the assignments strewn across the table. As my eyes skimmed over the pages of assignments of others, I noticed one assignment with 29% written on it. Yikes! I wonder if he really marked this one hard!
I finally saw the assignment with our distinctive cover page. I snatched it up and took a peak. I quickly held the assignment to my chest, confused at what I saw. I looked again.
I went to one of my group members and said “Aw man, look what we got.”
She looked at the paper in shock. “How did we get so low??” she asked. I told her that I had no idea. I showed it to one other group member. She couldn’t even contain herself.
We actually got 100% on the paper!! What was even funnier was the fact that the professor wrote down how he tabulated the marks…and then beside the 7.5% (this assignment is 7.5% of our final mark) he wrote 2 exclamation marks! Haha! It sure made us feel good.
I passed the assignment down so that everyone had a chance to read it. I wanted those who either didn’t pull their weight to read exactly what we had written and see how much of their work WASN’T in there.
Well, it’s after midnight and I have to go to work tomorrow but I just had to state how happy I was to get perfect on that assignment!
