NOTICE, Tuesday 4:20 PM: As noted in a previous post, comments with full names will be deleted at the request of the target.
UPDATE: Here’s some Spec coverage to tide you over.
UPDATE 5:29PM: A new email has been released by the Core Office:
The following e-mail was sent to all Lit Hum teachers earlier today:
There has been an unfortunate breach in Lit Hum final exam security.
Notes identifying the quotations and sketching out the essay questions circulated among students prior to the exam. (We have one copy of these notes.)
THE TELL-TALE SIGN:
Crime and Punishment – the students did not know of the last-minute quotation substitution.
SO, if any of your students identified the passage from Crime and Punishment as occuring in the Epilogue, chances are they had access to these notes. If the student correctly identified all of the other passages, chances are even greater. If they identified the exact Canto in Dante, they are very high indeed.
We will send out recommendations regarding grading later in the day.
Meanwhile, we are trying to determine how widely these answer sheets circulated and would welcome any information you have that may help.
Please refrain from submitting your final grades until we get back to you.
ALSO – WE WILL REQUIRE THAT ALL INSTRUCTORS SUBMIT ALL BLUE BOOKS TO THE CORE OFFICE.
