I am apart of the yearbook staff and every nine weeks we are required to sell 5 yearbooks for a different price each nine weeks, ex, $35 first term, $45 second term, $65 third term, and $75 fourth term. I have asked many different students to buy a yearbook, however, they have all said no and I have a 0 in my test category in her class which in turn is making me fail the class. I believe this is not fair to the hard working staff and should not be allowed. I would still sell the yearbooks if they were not taken as a grade, however, it is not my fault students say no and I am not able to sell any, therefore it should not be taken as my grade.
Depends on what the course is about. If the criteria for the grade has notihing to do with the course, then you might have a point. However, if the course is about Marketing, then the teacher seems to be justified in using a real-world situation to determine a grade. If you were working a Sales job, you would be expected to make a weekly/monthly/annual quota or be fired, demoted, or earn less than someone who made their quota.
