  3. 3. Identify Unknown Terms 'Crowdsourcing ,' the notion of using the wisdom of the crowd for sites like Wikipedia, could be making its way into academe as a grading method that holds students more accountable.

 A professor at Duke University plans to test just that this fall, when she leaves the evaluation of class assignments up to her students, using crowdsourcing to make students responsible for grading each other.

How are we held accountable now? What’s the big deal about Duke? I thought they were just good at BB. How often do I try to psych out the professor? Do I do the minimum to get the grade I want?

Is Wikipedia reliable? Would grading done like that be good?
