Policies and Procedures for Student Performance

The policies and procedures for the evaluation of student performance are consistent with University policy: the faculty has final responsibility for all decisions about student performance. At the same time, as members of the academic community, students have a voice in decisions that affect them.

  1. It is the responsibility of the instructor to determine whether or not the student has met the requirements of the course.
  2. The instructor is responsible for informing students about the course objectives and requirements. The instructor is also responsible for defining the criteria that will be used to assess whether the student has met the course requirements and for informing students about the criteria. Course performance expectations may apply to performance on examinations, papers, class participation and performance in the field, among other evaluative criteria.
