Note: In this post I will reference a class and teacher I had this semester but I’m not going to say what class or mention the teacher by name because I do not want to openly criticize anybody in particular. I’m simply using my experience in this class as an example; many teachers employ graders these days and I’m sure I’ll run into it again.
This semester I had a class where I wrote five papers and took two exams, a midterm and final. It was a fantastic class that I enjoyed immensely and I learned a lot. However, one aspect that I did not like is the teacher used a grader to grade our papers. The only paper this teacher graded was our research paper. I am not fond of graders and these are my reasons why.
