This is boring teachery stuff, so avert your eyes if you are not interested.
I've made mention of the piece of crap grading program we are now required to use even though we had a perfectly good, much better, user-friendly grading program we used in previous years. The new program doesn't move students who have transferred out of the building to the end of my roster, which the old program did. That way, you still had record of them being in your class, but by putting them at the end, they didn't get in the way when entering scores from stacks of papers that are in alphabetical order. I think I need a decoy paper to put in the pile so I don't get halfway done and realize that all the scores I've entered are one person off. It could be like setting a place for Elijah. It could be my Elijah paper.
