"Dear Student"

I never like any article that lumps one kind of student group into a single category or that suggests that students are the adversary rather than partners in the educational project, but this article addresses a very real phenomenon I've experienced multiple times, which is why I'm posting it here:
When that happens, one thing becomes clear: Their feelings about the quality of [the students'] work often don’t match the reality of their performance. Instead of seeing their grades as a reflection of how well they interpreted or executed their assignments, some students will come to a different conclusion: The assignment was too difficult. Or my professor doesn’t get me.
