Is it ethical for a lecturer to give all students in their class full marks for a module when they have not assessed the quality of the assessments?
In one class, students were told they would be marked on the quality of their assignments. However, the lecturer ended up giving the class marks based on whether they submitted the assessment or not. The marks for the individual assessments were not given. The lecturer admitted that the quality of the work was not assessed. (They didn't read through any of the submitted assessments)
This leads to my subsequent questions:
In such a situation, should then the mark recieved by students be seen as credit for the assesment or credit for the submission thereof?
What are the implications for the students when proceeding to the next year?
