And this from a Johns Hopkins computer science course, from BoingBoing:
Johns Hopkins computer science prof Peter Fröhlich grades his students’ tests on a curve — the top-scoring student gets an A, and the rest of the students are graded relative to that brainiac. But last term, his students came up with an ingenious, cooperative solution to this system: they all boycotted the test, meaning that they all scored zero, and that zero was the top score, and so they all got As.
Perhaps a good example of how computer networks solve problems, as the author states. But I think this an even better example of how easy testing is to dismantle. Complain about it? That takes more energy than to simply not do it. Then see what happens.
