Class today was taken up with review of the Eval PV. Noted briefly were the continued openness of the FinEx Survey (here: https://goo.gl/3xYQPP) and the still-in-progress work grading the SpEx. Students were asked to identify at least three things–other than proofreading–in need of attention on their peers’ work, explain why those things need attention, and suggest how that attention might be paid.
