EXAMINATIONS AND GRADING
(By Faculty action, February 7, 1995; Modified by the Registrar’s Office, 1995)
At the end of the mid-term period for each semester, faculty members will report to the Registrar’s Office all students currently receiving C-’s , D’s, F’s and NC’s in their courses. Mid semester grades for the fall semester are due no later than 12:00 noon on October 17. Mid semester grades for the spring semester are due no later than 12:00 noon on March 6.
Grades reported to the Registrar cannot be changed by the instructor except by approval of the Provost upon the instructor’s written petition stating that an error in computing or transferring the grade has been made. A grade cannot be changed by giving a second examination or by having the student hand in written work after the grade has been reported.
The grades given by each faculty member should be governed entirely in the light of the quality of work done by the students. The standard set by the instructor should demand distinctly superior work for an A grade. A grade of B should demand work considerably above average. The administration never has requested, and does not now request, that the distribution of grades by an instructor follow any set pattern.
