nz really is at the point of failing students for... a typo.

it was interesting because one of the judges was saying the university had discretion to say whether changes needed to take 10 weeks or 6 months or whether the thesis was not of a standard where it could be accepted...

and i said... surely they can't fail it because of a typo.

and he said 'of course not'

but it turns out that, in his judgment, of course yes.

'it is not acceptable in it's present state'. which could in fact be because of a typo.

in the us there was this thing about not holding smart studnets back because of something as silly as a typo. about silliness in refusing to allow a student to progress in maths because they got one answer wrong when you made them do hundreds of the same type of problem...

but that's what waikato thinks it should do to prevent and prohibit completion of the highest level of qualification.

i do actually wonder when the last time was that they conferred a graduate research degree.


i wonder if they just stopped conferring them...

prior to covid, even. possibly.

they split up the graduation ceremonies a bit. so that might conceal the fact that there aren't any phd or research thesis graduates.

that it's not a university because there isn't any research.

i don't know.

they won't be happy until the only thing they get is computer generated nonsense spat out of the post-modernist essay generator. and then it can be graded like-minded. the suggested changes, i mean to say. can be spat out of some kind of equivalent. so then they can say 'the changes we asked for were not done. the student didn't seem to understand what we were asking for'.

it's garbage

there's nothing here.
