A Red Pen WILL be Used to Mark Your Final Exams

Unlike here, your final examinations will be marked vigourously with red ink.

[PS: I post this jokingly!]

I would much prefer more of an earthier tone, such as taupe or sky blue.

Well this isn't Simon Fraser Elementary Surrey Campus, I think we can handle it.

Sounds funny, I know, but here's a true story. When I just finished my BA I got my first academic job: as a T(utor)M(arker). And when I handed back my first batch of graded papers -- marked in red -- the Course Instructor said "What? You'll freak out my poor students with all that red pen!"

But, as I've said many times, you guys are great!

The prof of the first course I took when I started on my degree marked everything in purple. It was actually sort of comforting.

trust me.. By the time people get used to seeing purple all over their errors, purple will stand out just as much as red...
