If my students ever pay attention to what I am saying...
If I say that I will replace your lowest test grade with the final exam grade if it is higher, then hand out a sheet with the same sentence on it, then still get an email from a student (who was in class) asking if I will replace the lowest test grade with the final, obviously they were not paying attention.
What does that say about the rest of the semester???
I decided to completely ignore the email...don't know if it was the best way to handle it, but it is too frustrating to handle incompetent students.
