So I am grading tests for a behaviour modification psychology course (I am the TA / grader marker for the course).

The students had to define a variable interval schedule with a limited hold (VI/LH) and give 2 examples that are not provided in the textbook.

Student writes the wrong definition and then gives two examples, which are also wrong then writes below the examples "trust me, these have happened to me in real life, these are real." Because this is the validation I need to mark their answer correct.

Another student wrote "I really have no fucking clue, you are tricky professor ***"

I couldn't help but laugh.

Otherwise marking these tests is absolutely fucking brutal. It has already taken me 10 hours, and will take me at least another 3-4.
