i gave my first test last friday. i didn't think it was hard enough when writing it, but my students' faces said otherwise as they turned it in.
i started grading at 1pm on friday. i layed them all out (70 total) in my teaching lab and graded them "hamner-style". brian came by to help me. he graded practically every multiple choice question and we still weren't done by 5:30pm. i finished up over the weekend...took me 2 additional hours. yikes.
i either need to get faster at grading or quit giving so much partial credit. likely both.
