It is so much easier to grade work where the students are trying and (while making errors) have put effort into doing a good job. It is difficult to grade something where half the papers have their name on it and nothing else and the rest has answers like (0,0) r = 4 to the question "write the equation of a circle with a center at the origin and a radius of 4."
Do you give that any points? Were they sitting in class while we hammered this over and over? I am supposed to up the rigor but the results are worse with a test of increased rigor.
