Question

My teacher has us grade our peers' tests in class, today while grading a classmate's test I
had realized prior to grading it that I had skipped a page on the back side of one of the
three pages as I completely did not see it. I brought this to my teacher's attention before
we graded it and she pretty much told me too bad. I studied for hours and am confident I
know the material. On the other two pages I DID complete I received 100 percent. As a
result of my mistake I got a 67 percent. I am wondering what your opinion on this issue is
from a teacher's perspective. On a side not I am aware that this teacher had given another
student a 100 when she made a similar error yet for me she just ignored the issue. I
usually receive A's on these tests. What do you suggest I do?

says:

It appears that your teacher is not interested in having accurate information about your
achievement and that is wrong and unprofessional. Your score on the test should be 67/67 =
100% or you should be allowed to redo an alternative version of the questions on the page
you missed.
