How very frustrating!!! :angryfire I am taking Computers 101 online for my general elective. I figured it would be an easy A for me.
Anyway, from the initial correspondence in the course, I detected a bit of a grammar
problem. Today I took my first exam in the assessment center, and this guy's grammar is so atrocious, it was difficult to make sense of some of the questions. His verbs didn't match up with his nouns, his punctuation and spelling
is awful... I am at a loss here. I did very well (got a 97/100) but this was the easiest stuff for this exam. I am worried about the subsequent exams. According to his own admission, he has been teaching this course for 3 years, and he also teaches at least one other course.
Oh - not to mention that 2 questions were identical
, and he asked a question about the history of computers when he specifically said that was NOT on the exam.
I am pretty sure that is the question I missed.
Anyway, I'm just whining, I guess. Has anyone else had a similar situation?

I thought it was funny, since the student's main complaint is proper grammar.
Actually, I did too.
My anatomy instructor wasn't always terrific with grammar, but he was still a great anatomy instructor.
And all of our micro tests contained mistakes that the instructor had to correct, while we were taking the tests. While it was pretty annoying at times, it also became an ongoing classroom joke, but I thought she was a decent teacher.
As far as "idiot" instructors, I do understand your frustration. I had one whose tests that made no sense whatsoever. The guy has no business teaching but, sometimes you just have to get through it. Otherwise, you have to repeat the course. I still pulled an A so, I guess that's all that matters.
