I just remembered one reason why the percentage of the grade in most of my classes tends to be higher at the end than at the beginning. It was a direct response to students who complained about assignments being weighted heavily earlier in the semester because they thought there should be more of an opportunity to get used to my expectations on things like papers and exams. Where did they complain about this? ON THEIR EVALUATIONS.
I'm damned if I do and I'm damned if I don't. I think it's about time I accepted that fact.
