Sad Faces and Spelling Errors

This term I seem to have quite a number of er, amusing bits in my students’ final exams and assignments…

One student was obviously at a loss in the exam and resorted to drawing sad (un)smiley faces in place of an actual answer. Kid, you have my sympathy, but no marks, sorry.

.

There were lots of spelling errors in the exam, like “over-the-showder” instead of “over-the-shoulder”, or “responsive” for “responsible.”

A couple of other glaring (but funny) errors were the acronym “V.O” being explained as “voice is over” (instead of “voiceover”) and a commercial being defined as “a objective oriented pain for profit organization.” hahaha

The best, of course, was the one who described the director and art director’s roles thus:

Director – person who overlooks the whole film and give direction

Art director – person who overlooks the whole set up and design of the film

If this wasn’t the final exam and if I still had lessons with them, I would probably have to make it a point to tell them that “overlook” ≠ “oversee”

.

Another class had to submit a poster design and a simple package design for an imaginary product as their final project for the sem, and one gave me a poster and package for a sort of three-in-one cosmetics product. So in one box there was supposed to be makeup for lips, eyes… and creeks.

Creeks?

hahahahahahah

Got anything to add or say? :D
