Creepy ETS Grading Services

Obviously, I’ve been distracted by this strike thing. But for my own purposes and to give people an idea about what is usually here when this is just a normal and boring blog: I was pretty creeped out by “The Criterion Service Review,” which is an electronic grading system done by everyone’s favorite company, ETS. If I ever teach again, this might be a good resource for English 516.

Two other quick thoughts for now. First, it does kind of have to do with the strike, in a way. Maybe this is an example of how technology allows for the outsourcing of faculty?

Second, given that the email that the ETS people sent me had a totally screwed up link on it, which raises some questions in my mind about how well their computerized scoring system really works.
