Expecting too much?

Do you ever feel as if you're expecting too much from your students?  Because the way I see it, stupidity couldn't be a problem for this many students, could it??  Are the instructions not clear enough?  Are the questions/assignments really that difficult? 

What do you do when you feel like this?

Comments

Although I agree with what the other posters have said, I have noticed a core group of students who are good students in the sense that they come to all classes, read all the instructions on assignments, get started early and put a good deal of work in. Their grades are generally passing but often only just. They are also the most liely to ask about the assignment if anything isn't clear, so I don't think its lack of clarity that stands in their way either. I think they just aren't very able academically, but are motivated to get a degree to further themselves in some pratical way
