It would have made her less sad about it.

Reminds me of that Malcolm in the Middle episode where the teacher has something against Reese. The mom tells Malcolm to do his school work for Reese, Reese hands it in, and still gets it wrong, and the mom flips on the teacher...

yeah I agree if he's gonna give you deduction for being wrong, take it up with higher authorities until its fixed. if he did it with you, how many others did he do it to?

Exactly in first year the entire program complained about a test that had problems that we never did before(not even close to same difficulty) and got a re test by going to the program head

As a college professor or teacher, they can grade you how ever they want on the tests they make. (unless it is a math class) Their lectures are based on their opinions, so are the tests. Regardless of what ever the book says because the book is an opinion as well and isn't always right.

#53 Difference of opinion should never be criteria for right/wrong answers on a test. Either the question is objective (there is only 1 or a few equally valid correct answers) or subjective (there are multiple interpretations based on personal opinion). Questions of a subjective answer should be looking at why the student has a certain opinion, not what their opinion actually is. OP sounds like they were taught the question objectively, since he could cite the part of the textbook that said he was right. Teachers can't just teach you something and then suddenly tell you that's wrong. If it was something that should have been opinion-based in the first place, then he tested students on the question in completely the wrong way.

This is an economics class, not philosophy or history... Economics are based on facts, not opinions. Also, even if it was the professor's opinion, he or she can't mark it as a mistake because it's not a solid fact... There is no right or wrong answer!

Teachers are seriously the worst. Be glad it's just with one test. A couple of years ago I kinda had the same problem, but with many tests. I tried to tell our principal, but she wouldn't do anything about it because my teacher worked there for a very long time already and she didn't wanna "lose her" -.- FYL for sure though.

Calm your tits #3. Teachers aren't the devil, spending their nights plotting how to fuck with your life. There might be some injustice but it's nothing we can't deal with. If anything, that'll prepare you for real life's injustice.

Not all teachers are "the worst" they stay up really late just to grade everyone's papers. Yes there are some bad teachers, but most of them aren't actually that bad. They don't just look at a paper and then decide to fuck with it. Teachers have a lot of responsibilities, trying to grade papers, helping student, dealing with angry parents, you make it sound like the teachers have it wasy

#39 If you're going to make generalizations like "Teachers are seriously the worst," then people are probably going to respond when they experienced something that doesn't fit that generalization. If you had said what happened in the context of empathy for the OP, then your comment would be better perceived. Generalizations are not usually seen in a positive light in the FML community.

Obviously, you must have had some seriously crappy teachers or you would know the meaning of hypocrite. Good luck understanding what I just meant. PS: how does it feel to be owned by a teacher? :)

He wrote the book. So I mean, he can change the course content. But he shouldn't be able to do it without informing the students. That's just being such an ahole. And hopefully OP can find a way to rectify the situation.

Some professors abuse power like that, but a stunt like that could be the difference between passing and failing the class. Sorry OP, hope it can be appealed and your grade doesn't suffer.

Sadly some questions on tests are opinions. And if you disagree with the professor, you're wrong by default. At least 17/20 isn't too bad. But it always sucks to get screwed out of a grade.
