I finished marking the exams today of the yoga teacher training. The pile I had to mark anyways. I find it difficult to mark those things because it means I need to make decisions and I don't always like to do that. I can mark yes or no, but when it's more subjective and I have leeway, my students out there will probably be happy to know that I err on the cautious side and give the writer the benefit of the doubt in most cases.
I do like looking at people's handwriting because I don't see much of that these days. Yoga students in general are not great spellers I'm sorry to admit. And I make sure those things don't influence my marking even though if it were up to me, I'd give out marks for penmanship and spelling and grammar.
