An alternative to curving

Clip to ScrapBook #5

I do something slightly different than the traditional curve. If more than 2/3 of a class period misses an one multiple choice question, I give the point(s) for that question back to the students. I figure, if that many people miss it, wither I didn't teach it effectively enough or it wasn't a very good question.

Theoretically, a class could decide to deliberately get all the answers wrong as a way of gaming the system, but in 15 years, no class has ever tried that
