“Return the first graded assignment or test before the add/drop deadline.”
That was a piece of advice from another paper I had to read for my online class that had me laughing.
My college’s drop day is ten weeks into the sixteen week semester. My students have gotten at least twenty graded assignments by now. And the drop date hasn’t passed yet.
I know such a late drop date is unusual for a college, though, so I guess I shouldn’t have laughed.
