Grade appeal 

Two faculty members at Southern Illinois University in Carbondale and their union have sued the state's executive inspector general after they were told they had completed the state's mandatory ethics quiz for state employees. They are seeking to have the rule thrown out; no money is requested. As I reported last month, completing the test in ten minutes is a no-no, but there is no stated rule for how long you should take. But some student managers have learned, according to Stephen Karlson, that stretching it to thirty minutes by multitasking is OK.
