Giving 150 midterms, that's what. I apologize for my lack of participation as of late, but merciful light is at the end of the grading tunnel.
I like to take some of the pressure off the final and give the students some feedback, but I now think the cost in workload outweighs the benefit. Of course, I thought that last year, too, and still gave midterms this year.
Could someone please copy this post and send it to me in October of next year?
Do you give midterms, and why or why not?
