Rigour seems to mean two different practices: The thoroughgoing-ness of the curriculum (here rigour is expected of the professor in terms preparation *and delivery*) and the exactingness of assessment (where the onus is on the student, at the mercy of the teacher). When professors lag on the former, they sometimes believe they can make up for it in the latter. It’s unseemly when they do. (h/t JM)
