Yuck, yuck, and more yuck. Is it legal for students to be graded this way? Possibly. I can't imagine there is any specific language in the state statutes dealing with how grades are to be calculated. Is it ethical? Not a chance. Even the best calculated grades are fuzzy estimates of what a student truly knows, but they're the best measure we have. Assigning grades based on what seems to be intuition or leniency run amok. I would do exactly what you did, which is to document and reach out to whatever governing body may be able to give you some help.
