The Naughty List

Written by

Hey there! Merry Christmas to you. Many of you, like many of us, were expecting a special gift by today: fall semester’s grades. And many of you, like many of us, are without said grades.

So, we’ve begun to compile a list of professors who have yet to upload your final marks. Use the comment thread to shame your professor, and we’ll add him/her to our list. With a little Christmas magic — and some Google-able dishonor — we might all be able to get our grades by New Year’s. 

(Grades are actually due two weeks after the last class — making some seminar grades overdue — or two weeks after the last final.)

  43. Add, please.

    Katja Vogt, History of Philosophy I

  44. None

    None of my classes got grades back yet.

    None of them.

    One was a creative writing class which had portfolios dues three weeks ago. Another was an entirely scan-troned multiple choice test. Come on, guys, come on!

  45. Umm..

    You do realize grades aren't officially due until the 29th, right?

    From SSOL's web grading submission form for instructors:

    "Web Grading for Fall 2008 will be available as of December 1, 2008. Grades are due no later than Monday, December 29, 2008."

    • oops

      Didn't actually know that. Sort of assumed it was past the due date because Bwog posted this list.

      Knowing grades don't even have to be turned in yet is a load off my back. Like any painful inevitable, they'll come when they come!

  46. Orhan Pamuk  

    Shame on you, Nobel laureate and all. Don't you know Columbia apartments come with professorial duties?

  47. Tired of Waiting

    Weihong Bao, Global Genres & East Asian Cinema...

    Come on, there were less than 20 in the whole class!

  48. Ellie Hisama

    for chromatic harmony and counterpoint.

    although no one at columbia gives a shit about music undergrads, so whatever.

  49. Mule

    I got a B+ in Lit. only grade so far. Read all the books and got a B...Who the hell gets a B in Lit Hum! I'm a damn mule.

    It's my only grade so far so needless to say I'm in a panic.

    Another grade offender: David Helfand, Frontiers of Science.

    • ehh

      it happens to the best of us. Don't let it get to you. Learn fast that grading is random and means nothing.

      • Mike Oxbig

        Does changing section really occur a lot during the second semester?

        I pulled an A- in Lit Hum which is satisfying but I actively dislike my section. Love the teacher but some of hese kids are kills a lot of my desire to participate.

        If there's a general shuffle in every come January i would love to switch.

        • Senior

          If you dislike your first semester Lit Hum or CC teacher/class, don't feel dissuaded from switching sections for second semester. I switched mid-year for both and got lucky both times -- ended up with two of the best teachers/classes I've had at Columbia.

          • Word on that  

            I actually failed the first semester of Lit Hum (I was a clusterfuck of a freshman and deserved the F), so I've taken three semesters with three different instructors (ie, two falls and a spring). All of my instructors were fucking amazing (all were gold nuggets on culpa), but grading was highly variable. I got a B+ my second time around at Lit Hum I, despite having read all the books thoroughly and having a year up on my competition; and an A+ in Lit Hum II. It pays to shop around.

            (Protip for the '13s: it also pays to write your fucking papers and show up to class.)

          • hey, #74!

            Merry Christmas! I'm coming back on the 16th (I think), so I'll see you then. I miss you tons! Thanks for cleaning the fridge!

          • Woah...

            May I ask who was your third A+ Lit. Hum. professor?

            Poster #68

    • Well...

      as explained in a previous posting, David Helfand was traveling quite a long distance on his sleigh last night...

      • Yes!

        I am so glad David Helfand = Santa Claus is sticking. But speaking of, St. Helfand, not only are you holding up every sections' grades in Frontiers, WHERE THE EFF WAS THE PUPPY I ASKED FOR THIS MORNING???

    • cc '10

      i got a b+ in every great books class, regardless of how much effort i put in. it's normal. don't fret too much.

  50. really depends

    on the teachers... i know someone who got a friggin C- lit hum first semester!!!! C-!!! after working her butt off... then changed teachers and got an A or A- second semester....ridiculous, hate that about small discussion classes

  70. This is

      to her credit she was a damn good teacher and has several hundred exams to grade by herself.

  82. here's more...

    Jacqueline Olvera, Intro Sociology
    Jose Plácido Ruiz Campillo, Spanish Linguistics (but he's new and probably not entirely used to "coor-se-works)

  83. here's more...

    God - How to be good

  90. lmx

    How is Campillo? I'm taking his class next semester.

    • he's

      very chill...and kind of crazy (in a good way). though we had no work all semester and the class had no structure... and our only graded assignment was a 10 page final research paper, but we barely had time to write it & he never gave any clear direction/help on it whatsoever. i still have no idea what i learned in that class.

  91. URBS:

    Jack McGourty and Tim Cross, Science and Technology in Urban Environments

  98. here's more...

    Jacqueline Olvera, Intro Sociology

    Jose Plácido Ruiz Campillo, Spanish Linguistics (but he's new and probably not entirely used to "coor-se-works)

  99. ssol addict

    has anyone figured out what the ssol update times refer to? it seems like approximately central time but its not always exact.

  100. ssol addict

    No, grades posted the previous day appear whenever SSOL updates many hours before you receive the email. However, the update times don't match any time zone in this country. For example, today it claims to have updated at 2:24 but it is 4:23 EST...

  101. Eric Foner

    not sure about other sections, but the only grade I haven't gotten is for Foner's The American Radical Tradition.

  112. Wtf

    Honestly, where the hell are my grades? I'm still missing three of them -- two from seminars with less than ten kids in each! If today is the deadline, what do you do if it's not posted? Why would the profs even need to follow the deadline -- clearly Presbo isn't abiding by it, why should they?

  113. wtf times six

    only missing 3....i have 6 classes and missing all is up.

  114. yea if

    today's the deadline, then that means if they put it up today, it'll show up on ssol tomorrow.. but yea still waiting for 1 more grade...

    lynn catterson just put her grades art hum teacher!

  115. SSOL

    stayed up all night for SSOL to update, it still hadn't updated at 6am.


  116. question

    um, what exactly happens if a professor does not post by the deadline? are any punitive measures taken at all?

  117. Prof Bao

    Global Genres and East Asian Cinema, Weihong Bao: Last class December 3, Paper deadline 20 days ago; like 20 people in the class = read 1 paper per day... Why no grade posted? Don't get it... CULPA time!

    that professors should have to move our grades up one step for every day they are late posting grades. After all we get penalized for turning papers in late. This is ridiculous.
