Transcript Byte By Byte It all began when I went to ask my professor about the lower- than-expected grade on my fall grade report. The discussion did not bring about any changes in my grade. As I was leaving, feeling somewhat defeated, the professor told me he was teaching a full-sized class in the same course and would I be interested in grading the class' assignments for him? I would be paid a set amount each month, though I would be "working" more hours one week and maybe none the next. No, it would not affect my lower-than- expected grade of the fall, he told me. The next day, the professor introduced me to the class of 160. I'm not sure they needed to see the person who would be grading all of their work. Two days later, as I walked into my accounting class, a guy asked if I wasn't the grader for ... I began to have strange notions of bribes and violence about low grades. The first wave of papers fulfilled my expectations of the task's simplicity. All I had to do was check off the students who turned in a one-page summary of "My Computer Experience." It's amazing how many people listed "watching my groceries being checked out" as their computer exposure. Three weeks later followed the first real assignment. The professor had to help me carry all the papers and disks to my car. One hundred and sixty students, seven printed documents and a disk each totaling 1,120 pieces of paper and 160 disks thickened by an assortment of folders, see- through covers, and huge envelopes. Again, this assignment was relatively simple; they had to write the original "My Computer Experience" using WordPerfect and then make six different editorial changes, each time referring to the original. It wasn't so bad, though, because I had my 13-year-old brother help me. I wonder how the students would feel knowing they were under the scrutiny of an eighth grader. A week after handing back the papers, the professor asked me to keep regular office hours, fearing that his secretary, who has never had a business class in her life, would be attacked with questions about grades. The next assignment was complex, involving actual computer programming in BASIC. I thought, I have the entire Spring Break to do this, no sweat. Wrong! Even though I had check figures that would produce specific answers when run through the programs, I rarely got through the program to see exactly how much they got right, and where they made their mistake. Have you ever tried to correct someone's logic? I was to grade 160 different versions — make that 159, two were exactly the same except for the name — of one assignment. Now, I am sitting here, two days before school begins again, with approximately 18 papers graded. Two of those 18 are so twisted in logic that I can not come up with a positive (as oppossed to a negative) grade for them. Maybe I should get back to them. — Sandhya Sanghani s E N I O R S Veronica Flores Cristina Isabel Fonseca Andrea Maria Font Farshid Forozgan Patrick E. Forster Darlene Freitag Janet W.
