defenestrating: ([abe] technologic)
Quick rant. I apologize, flist.

Webmastering now deserves it's own tag, because especially when we start getting assigned projects, I can tell my teacher and I are going to be in one hell of an epic struggle.
Last Tuesday, we had a production test. Basically, we're given an instruction sheet and a screencap of a website, and we have to remake it. Absolutely thrilling, I know. Last production test, I deviated from the instructions a little and got penalized for it, so since I learned from my mistakes, I told myself to not show any signs of creativity whatsoever and treat that instruction sheet like my bible. A test that could've taken me 15 minutes lasted around 30, because I quadruple checked my code and the instructions so I could deliver an absolutely flawless result that I'm capable of giving.

So we get our test grades back today, and I get a 90.
I seriously wtf. A 97/95 I could understand, but a 90? That meant I did something wrong. So I grab up my rubric when it's given back to me and look over her corrections.
Five points off for defining the horizontal rule size as '5px' instead of just plain '5'. Another five points for not adding alternate text to the image, which I honestly do not remember being on the instructions. If it is on the instructions, then so be it (I will find this out tomorrow, since I'm asking for the instructions sheet to compare against my code again).
But the horizontal rule thing I still cannot understand. It's just two extra characters. It looked the same as if I had used '5' instead of '5px'. She had never taught us how to edit the size and shit of a horizontal rule except for mentioning it as an afterthought and giving us a vague worksheet.

I honestly do not get what she wants from us students. Instead of telling us what she doesn't want to see/what isn't acceptable by the curriculum standard, she just marks off for it on tests and quizzes. imho, it's a little bit rude to be so picky about something we didn't know she was looking for after we've moved on to learning new things. Learning from our mistakes on quizzes and tests is too late to be learning something; that's what homework is for, god damnit.

asjdf;laksf seriously.
