A Grading Machine

This year was my first time grading the English department's proficiency test for 11th graders. The kids were given three hours yesterday afternoon to read a short story and write a critical essay in response to a question. Each exam was read by at least two department members this morning. We gathered at 8:30am and over the next three hours I read and graded 78 (!) exams. Admittedly, there was no expectation one had to mark the papers; in fact, we weren't allowed to, as it might influence the next reader. But I flew through those puppies.
