The driver's expression doesn't change at all. He must be so bored.

Also, not shown in the video: the family of wild piglets being driven out.

Those kids aren't cheating at all. There's probably some term for what they're doing that was used as an excuse to outsource their testing to a sketchy, unaccountable private company. Outcome-based education or something like that. The fact that they're letting an algorithm grade kids' work without any human oversight at all is untenable.

The schools are the ones cheating. All the students are doing is learning to adapt to an unfair system.

I believe itís called ďendangering the school administrationís private nest egg by exposing their cost cutting measure.Ē Iím having flashbacks to one of the worst teachers Iíve had getting annoyed That I was sleeping in class while we listened to him read a book on tape.

Oh god, the future is just going to be ďthrow a shitty AI at itĒ isnít it. The fact of the matter is that a modern neural network could probably be made to take in a set of test questions, as well as a number of real human answers and learn to grade multi paragraph answers equally to humans, but that would take time, money and effort... just tell it to search for some keywords and letís fuck off home. (Amusingly with the blackbox aspect of many neural networks, precautions need to be taken that your fancy neural network doesnít take the low energy method of just looking for keywords while acting like itís doing something fancy.)

Default Re: Fucking education! How does it work?

At my institution of secondary learning, my department has decided to embrace the idea that students on the distance learning could be cheating, and design our tests and quizzes so that answers reflect student's ability to apply their skills rather than a bunch of content knowledge they can just look up online and type into their answer sheet.

Myself, I have learned from my administration long long ago that I should give up on the idea that students should know things and meet a minimum quality of work.

Dead Man Teaching | The Chronicle Higher Education Community



Quote:
During one of those recent lectures, a question occurred to Ansuini that he wanted to follow-up on with the professor. ... So he paused the video on his laptop and Googled the professor’s name in order to find his email ... What he found instead was an obituary. ... FranÁois-Marc Gagnon, an art-history professor at Montreal’s Concordia University, had passed away in 2019 at age 83. Turns out Ansuini’s favorite new professor was dead.

Default Re: Fucking education! How does it work?

That's just monstrous. Seriously, I'm enraged.

Way back in the 80s, I worked my way through college. It was hard. I didn't have any money from my parents, but I qualified for Pell grants, and I worked three part time jobs, and went to the cheapest four year college, and I went year round so I could finish in three years instead. My GPA took a hit because I was desperately sleep deprived. I paid way too much for my textbooks and sold them back for almost nothing.

And I never ever wanted anyone to have to do that again. I don't know that I imagined how much worse it could get. As hard as I worked back then, I couldn't do it today.

I wanted things to get better, but they've only gotten worse. Worse than I ever imagined.

Yeah hmm looks like discord doesn't support embedding. Or something.

You may be dumb, but not because of this.
