Procedure 3.01.26 - Grading for Curriculum Classes


Faculty must clearly state grading policies and criteria and apply those policies and criteria in an accurate and consistent manner. The grading procedure in every class must at least be characterized by the following:

  1. The grading scale and the type of information used to derive the final average in the course must appear in the course syllabus, and faculty must give all students a syllabus.
  2. Faculty must uniformly apply the grading policy to all students.
  3. Using the announced grading scale, faculty must give students regular feedback throughout the semester on individual performance in the course.

Faculty teaching developmental classes must give early, frequent, and specific feedback to students on their performance. Students must receive feedback on performance weekly, beginning no later than the second week of the course. Feedback should specifically offer praise where merited and/or identify specific problems, offering solutions to those problems.
