Compliance with accreditation standards not optional

If you wrote a 90-page report, a term paper perhaps, and you got back six pages of comments from your professor that repeated points of the original question that your report was meant to answer, would you call the instructor’s comments:

A. A polite but pointed hint that you missed the point of the question.

B. A suggestion to try again – harder;

C. A “roadmap” for points of interest you had missed;

D. All of the above?
