Test Corrections – Giving students points back for test corrections motivates them to learn from their mistakes, which can be critical in a course in which the material on one test is important for understanding material later in the term. Moreover, test corrections can actually save time grading, since grading the test the first time requires less feedback to students and grading the corrections often goes quickly because the student responses are mostly correct.

One breaker crashes ...  As the next draws up, a lull— and sandpiper-cries [17]

Undoubtedly among Southard's most beautiful and evocative poems, this haiku has somehow eluded commentary since its initial publication in the July 1972 issue of Haiku West magazine.[14] There it took its place in one of his haiku "sequences," experimental suites of six or occasionally twelve poems for which, in part, he went on to receive a Haiku Society of America Award in 1974.

The primary qualities of an object are properties which the objectpossesses independent of us—such as occupying space, beingeither in motion or at rest, having solidity and texture. Thesecondary qualities are powers in bodies to produce ideas in us likecolor, taste, smell and so on that are caused by the interaction ofour particular perceptual apparatus with the primary qualities of theobject. Our ideas of primary qualities resemble the qualities in theobject, while our ideas of secondary qualities do not resemble thepowers that cause them. Locke also distinguishes a second class ofsecondary properties that are the powers that one substance has toeffect another, e.g. the power of a fire to melt a piece of wax.

Locke makes this distinction in Book II Chapter 8 of the Essay andusing Boyle’s terminology calls the two different classes ofproperties the primary and secondary qualities of an object. Thisdistinction is made by both of the main branches of the mechanicalphilosophy of the seventeenth and early eighteenth century. Both theCartesian plenum theorists, who held that the world was full ofinfinitely divisible matter and that there was no void space, and theatomists such as Gassendi, who held that there were indivisible atomsand void space in which the atoms move, made the distinction betweenthese two classes of properties. Still, the differences between thesetwo branches of the mechanical philosophy affect their account ofprimary qualities. In the Chapter on Solidity Locke rejects theCartesian definition of body as simply extended and argues that bodiesare both extended and impenetrable or solid. The inclusion of solidityin Locke’s account of bodies and of primary qualities distinguishesthem from the void space in which they move.
