"The good news is that the papers are actually not end products of a learning experience, nor are they an indictment of our teaching ability or a sad indication of our students’ abilities. Instead, they represent a point in a learning journey that the student is undertaking with us, and performance on a paper is not completely indicative of whether or not a student can write or has learned the material. Instead, it’s reflective of a variety of pressures students may be under as they make a transition to increasingly higher levels of writing and thinking."
