Did my professor mark me unfairly?
I received a lower grade than expected on a recent project. When looking at the feedback, I saw marks deducted for things that were not indicated in the project outline or description (i.e. specific font size, spacing etc). I went to my prof, believing that it is unfair to deduct marks for this when I had otherwise met the outlined requirements. They’re response was “You should have asked me”. This can’t be fair. If she was expecting it, it should have been in the outline. How am I supposed to ask about something that was never indicated? At that point, I could just as well have asked if they would like it written in gold, or delivered to them by helicopter. Is it not the prof’s responsibility to outline what is expected of us?
