Today I decided to google my name and see what came up. The first hit was a facebook profile, which was expected. On the first page, however, I noticed that my name was part of a file uploaded onto my college's FTP server. Curious, I click the link. Guess what I find?
This is my English professor's entire gradebook excel file. Every grade that every student has received is on this page, as well as the projected grade of each student. Hmmm... I wonder what else I can find. Yep, so the study guide for the final exam -- which wasn't supposed to be given to us for at least another week -- is on here. I'm not sure what to do here. People's grades are generally considered private information; I'm sure she wouldn't tell me my neighbor's grade in the class if I just asked. Should I say something to her? Should I pretend it never happened?
