A Year of Living Positively-Day 186

The grades are in the system. Wrangling with the numbers is over. I finished marking essays this afternoon, which kept me there into the evening so as to post the last batch of grades. The system is new, and grading different. There were missing assignments, and one misplaced assignment, but I found the missing one and carried on. A couple of the classes were strong, so that some students who performed at a B level got relegated into C+ status. Then, there was a problem saving the data of one class. I had to call on the staff to assist me with that, and they consulted the technical support team to resolve the problem. Now, the grades are on the system and available for students to view.

The university has scaled down the distribution of A's because it used to allow too many, which is somewhat corrupting. Anyway, governments don't like that, and the government of South Korea was threatening to withhold future funding unless adjustments like that were made. In sum, the government's new regulations and monitoring is good and beneficial to society, I think. 

I came home at about seven o'clock today, a Friday evening, and made a turkey and tomato salad. I felt like getting to bed early, but I only slept briefly then was awoken by the usual disturbances out in the street. Then I got hooked on TV. When I did fall back to sleep, it was only a light snooze and I soon woke up again. I actually caught some of the World Cup soccer competition on TV. That is way I felt a bit listless and lazy on Saturday.
