POLICY ON REGRADING OF HOMEWORK AND TESTS:
If you feel that there was a genuine error in the
grading of your homework or test, then you should write or type a full
explanation of your concern on a separate piece of paper.
(Also include your full name, student number, e-mail address, and
Then give this envelope to the instructor within one week
of when the graded homework or test was first available. All
regrading requests must be done in writing -- you may not argue your
grade in person.
Your claim will then be examined. If it is found to be valid, then an
appropriate adjustment to your mark will be made. The regrading
decision of the instructor is final.
You must not alter your test paper in any way before submitting
it for regrading -- any such altering will be treated as a serious
If you submit a regrading request,
the instructor may also choose to re-examine the grading of your
entire homework or test, with a critical eye, and may
decide to deduct various points,
so your mark may end up going
down rather than up. Thus, you should
only request a regrade in cases of
genuine, clear grading error (e.g. incorrectly adding up the marks,
or marking a solution as wrong when it is actually correct).
I really mean it!
POLICY RE MISSED TEST DUE TO ILLNESS:
If you miss a test unavoidably due to illness, then you must submit a
"University Of Toronto Student Medical Certificate" form, available on
the web at:
This form should be filled in by you and your doctor, and then presented
(along with any other supporting documentation) to the instructor
as soon as possible.
If your claim of illness is found to be valid, and you are excused from
writing the test, then the corresponding course grade weighting will be
shifted to the final exam.
