    •  That's the final exam in my comp classes. (2+ / 0-)

      The second semester is argumentation and research.

      If their argument is strong, it shows they've learned how to gather evidence and organize it well -- they'll then get the grade they argue for.

      It requires a lot of intellectual honesty as well -- they know I can see pretty quickly through any attempt at rationalization.

      Beware the man of one book.
