I just had someone earn a 16% on an exam.

Totally phoned it in, that one did. This is a math-based class and I asked them to SHOW THEIR WORK so I could pick it apart and find the errors and maybe give them partial credit where deserved. This person just slapped a (wrong) answer on every question, almost no work shown, and what he had is so sloppy I can't read it.

I did put a big note on the top requesting he show his work next time and why. I know he won't be happy but criminy, that's arrogance - just putting down an answer and assuming it's right, and not showing your work.
