I wish it were snowing here.

NYC needs to stay snow-lite if I am to have much chance of convincing my partner to move there.

So pipe down!

Uh..did I say snow?

I mean rain! It's raining here! Hardly ever snows. It's why I have to do my Wunian snow dance to see any of the white stuff at all. Yup. Hardly ever any snow.

Good point. Once they see my face, that will be the end of that. Well, hopefully, there will be plenty of things to do in Atlanta after they shoo me out the door.
How long you there for? Atlanta is only a few hours away. :D

It's only for 4 hours, so I have a feeling I'll drive up the night before, interview, then drive back the same day as the interview.

Well to be honest it is not much and thankfully not sticking. You know with your love of snow you should move north.
Speak for yourself. We've gotten about 6 inches so far and it isn't stopping.

We're talking about snow, right?

Hmm, similar, but not same, response. Is that a ninja-ing?

Off to lunch, then I'm interviewing a business analyst candidate (really! F+%$ if I know what I'm going to ask a BA candidate), then we have a two hour seminar.

I'll be back much later. :)

Lecturing done. I need to edit some materials and send them to students, but I think I feel a nap coming on. How did week's get so long?

This is not snow. This is pathetic. On the north end, I think we're up to a whole quarter inch. Maybe. If I find the right patch of drifted fluff. Lame.

Good news on the power plant job. Where would this one take you?

Pueblo, so it would be close enough to commute most likely. That adds about an hour drive each way to a 13 hour shift seven days a week, so I may reassess based on fatigue. Man, I need this job to come through!

Thanks, the work, weather, and hours are challenging, but the money would be timely.

Please give feedback:

I'm tired of the superlame peer grading I get from students, giving them the kind of rubrics I use for grading. So I'm taking letter grading away from them and tricking them with 11 categories worth up to 3 pts each. I'll times the result by 3 for a grade from 0-99. I need eleven categories. They're grading a presentation. Here's what I've got so far:

I could hear the P.
P. was easy to follow.
P. made good use of media other than speaking/writing.
P. was well-prepared.
P. demonstrated interest and good attitude.
P. showed mastery of book.
I learned completely new things.
I understood what I already knew better.
P. answered questions well.

Suggestions? Two more? Criticisms?

I like it.

Spoiler:

P. explained clearly and concisely (might be equivalent to your second one.)
P. sparked my interest in the subject.
P. was nattily attired.
P. exuded charm and scholarship.
P. looked good in a tam.

The new things/old things better might be mutually exclusive categories.

For a new measure, something like "Presentation was well-structured." It might be easy to follow, but it could be jumping around like a badger on honey.

Gosh, I'm so close.

Yeah, I agree on old/new learning, and had already split that up.

What, you can't think of 20 so that you can rate each one 1-5?

(mathematics graduate)

Actually had a professor in college where we had 20 assignment throughout the semester, each one worth 5 points. The total was our grade at the end of the year.

Maybe I'm being mean by going 0 instead of 1, but they tend to inflate grades. Here's the thing: I've used a spread of five in the past, I think that's too fiddly for them. Many can't or won't bother to distinguish between 5 levels of quality. Also, I don't want 100 to be possible on a non-objective assignment.

For the few who will be pained by the spread, like I would be, I'll tell them they can give a .5 grade in-between if they ABSOLUTELY can't choose between the two.
