I just realized after grading about 15 essays today that I have been using last year’s rubric, and I ran off like 50 of these to grade these essays from home, and I can’t print copies of the new one because my home computer isn’t working (which my printer is installed on), and the file is saved on my school network drive.
The old one is out of 130 points, and the new one is out of 170 points. I, of course, gave my kids a copy of the rubric when I assigned the essay. How bad is it that I’m just crossing my fingers that none of them notice the difference? (It’s bad, I know.)
Oh well, sorry kids, I’m grading with the old rubrics I guess. I’m the worst, I know.
So good mood and feeling of adequacy gone. I just want to cry. I need a hug.
That is all.
