[Hannah]: emotional grading rubric
Honestly, grading is so subjective. This is my first semester of grading papers and I seriously found that only my emotional reaction could really tell me what the grade of an undergraduate 5-7 page essay ought to be.
Rage: F (professor says: a paper that receives an "F" is a paper that is actively hostile toward knowledge).I imagine a paper that produced actual laughter and tears might merit an A+ but I sure haven't seen one of those yet.
Utter indifference: B-, B
Intense frustration: B+
Mild pleasure: A-
Actual enjoyment, interest in having conversation with student: A
