Obviously Blanaid FitzGerald doesn't regard all his learning worthwhile unless it's accredited a B+ and counts towards terms Why else should he be up in arms over a token resistance to a system that does exactly that?
My guess is that if more students were to evaluate their own learning (or lack of it) the drop-out rate would increase radically It is time we stopped believing in the myth that all we are taught and expected to learn is worthwhile.
I am one of the "infantile, untrustworthy, stupid twits" who is opposed to the subjection of individuals to objective, often ambiguous tests that are used to estimate their understanding of spoon-fed data. It is time education became a dynamic process where staff and students work together as people in the natural process of "give and take" that occurs outside the academic barriers of this University.
