Maybe I should give up teaching.

So, I've really loved teaching this quarter. Up until today. Test day. Not only do tests examine the knowledge of the student, but to some degree they also evaluate the effectiveness of the teacher. Well, either I suck or they do. Even my best students struggled to pull-off a C. Only one student got an A, and none a B. 23 points I curved the test, and 7 out of 18 still failed.

Is there a way to find out what other instructors are testing their students on? Of course students of community colleges should be held to the same standards as other do you have something from Muskingum to compare the test to? It could very well be the students. If it's their first semester, it could be that too. I did poorly on my first test at a community college...just a wake up call, and I did better from then on.
