    Gotta love that sub handbook.

    Yup that's right this question has already been answered for me in my substitute handbook. One of the issues covered is grading work. It says that a sub should NOT grade work.

    Not only is it unfair for a substitute to have to grade things (especially without a key) but it is COMPLETELY unfair for a student to have their work graded by someone else. Usually a sub is unfamilar with that teachers grading system and many times right or wrong is a judgement call that subs may not be qualified to grade. I have a BFA but that in no way qualifies me to grade 11th grade pre-cal homework.

    Sometimes I ignore this rule though, especially since I only sub for elementary levels. I mean it doesn't take very long to correctly figure out that 4+2=6. And it doesn't take long to help out the teacher. Hope this helps.
