So I got off of Spring Break yesterday, and one of the first things I had to do was an in-class essay for my Creative Writing class.

Apparently, I got a 5/30.

That's an F. It's a horrible, horrible F. Not to mention the worst grade I've ever gotten on anything.

Frankly, I wasn't expecting to get a good grade on it, but really? 5? I have an 87% now. That's a 6% drop in a single day.

Guess I know what I'm going to be burning in the near future. =/

Did you have a time limit cause if so I can see why you goofed.

Lovely, because we all know it's possible to grade creativity. Seriously, the only thing I think would be bad for a class like that is if you just didn't do anything at all. Maybe you should protest the grade if you feel the reasons are invalid for such a low score.

Ask your teacher why. Maybe if s/he is reasonable, and you explain why you think you should have gotten a better grade, s/he can amend it to a better grade.

Or did you just flat-out derp?

Onarax: We had the entire block to do it, which was 90 minutes, and I finished like, five minutes before class ended. So time wasn't a problem.

xccj: I know, right? Why the heck is an essay part of a creative writing class? >_>


ToD and xccj's second point: Since I checked the grade on-line and haven't gotten the paper back yet, I have absolutely no idea why I got a low grade. It had to either be the fact that my hand-writing is messy or the fact that (and I admit this) I had only a very vague idea about how to answer the prompt I got, so I don't even know if I answered it as thoroughly as I could have.

So until I get it back, I have no way of trying to get the grade bumped up. =\

Yowch. Once you get the paper back, if the feedback given right on it isn't explanatory enough, you should definitely go and talk with the teacher. And while this next bit depends on the class and kind of teacher, if you're really concerned about your grade it can't hurt to ask if there's any sort of extra credit or makeup work you can do.
