    One of my sections averaged a D- on our last exam. It was clearly explained, and for one reason or another, people didn't answer the questions.

    Do the work. That's my answer. Do the work.

    Oh we did the work, she claimed we were "cheating" by taking images off of google and citing them properly. She never told us what source was or wasn't availible.

    If an entire class does that poorly it's more than likely a reflection of the professor or the course.

    Never seen that before.

    I'd go to your academic adviser and elevate it the issue as much as possible. That's ridiculous.

    I'm pretty ****** off right now about the whole situation, as my GPA is good.

    I had a similar situation over a TA misplacing her sweater (claimed stolen but found later):

    Before curves, absolutely. My thermo teacher loved that sort of thing. We'd all be contemplating dropping the course and he'd post the scale at 60% = A.

    Also, of course Sturges every semester threatened to report half the class for using the solution manual on homework because he put an error in one of the solutions.

    Technically its one assignment but it's 20% of the grade. So it would drastically lower everyones.

    Sounds like an empty threat to get people to properly cite images/articles/etc.

    Accounting class two years ago, we all did horrible on a test and/or quiz, the professor blamed us. Enough bad evaluations, complaints to the advisers we're made. I dont even think he still teaches at ISU now because of it.

    I've been hearing awful things about an econ teacher acting in the same manner this year about overall poor class results, and blaming the students.
