I believe it requires looking at the exam to decide that question. I know I'm not in high school, but believe it or not it still comes up even with the younger kids. I look at the test and try to figure out what went wrong. Were they messing around? Did they fail to use their strategies? Well then, a bad grade will teach them an important lesson. Did I not cover something on the test? Or did I cover it poorly? Then I curve, they were not properly prepared, and that is not their fault.
