  1. I never really liked it although I did benefit from it on occasion. I like mean cranky teachers. If you don’t know your stuff, you fail. I feel like it is “dumbing down” to mark on the curve. Can you imagine being in a class of 20 really smart people and somebody has to be “the dummy”.

  2. All it means to me is that the teacher/professor couldn’t figure out how to test the students’ skills appropriately, so takes the lazy way out by creating a curve.

    Don’t even get me started on performance reviews/”merit” raises being done on a curve too!
