I think this student should get an A for the quiz and likely the course.
After all, if he only linked to the other students' pages, then he
illustrated part of what using the Web is all about. Grades, schmades...
the students who responded negatively are still getting the grades they
earned-- just as they would if the student in question spontaneously
combusted. The comparison has little value, but the value of his thinking
does. After all, when we approach a problem regarding the web or
utilizing a web, creation of original content is one of the last ways to go.
