Here is the information you need to know about grades.  Please remember, I also
have deadlines which must be met which are set by the registrar's office.

The bottom line of this process is that grades are due on MY DESK, NOT LATER
THAN 3:00 P.M. ON MAY 2, 1996.  The rule of thumb is that you have five working
days after your exam to get them in to me.  (This is from the Registrar's
Office, not me).

Here is the memo (with a couple of revisions which I sent last term.  If you
have problems/concerns, please address them to me or to Mort Abramson and we
will attempt to address them.


COMING SOON TO YOUR MAIL BOX


The final grade sheets for courses that are ending in April.
>
Please note the following when reporting your grades - you will not get a paper
copy of this e-mail so read carefully.
>
Do not fold, staple, spindle, mutilate, drop food on, rip or in any other way
mar the forms.  Please, please don't lose them, I don't have a second copy.
>
I don't know why, but this reporting session the grades are run by FACULTY, so
most of you will be receiving two sets of sheets.  PLEASE also note that grade
sign in sheets are included with the forms.  These sign in sheets MUST be
returned either along with your final grades, or immediately after your
examination.
>
There are some general rules for submitting grades.  YOU MUST LEAVE ABSOLUTELY
NO BLANK GRADES SOMETHING MUST BE REPORTED FOR EVERYONE.  If a student did not
write the final examination the grade must be marked as F(DNW) and the
appropriate boxes filled in.  Don't forget to also fill in the letter grade in
the appropriate place.  In other words if John Smith received a B+ in your
course - you would submit the grade as B+ (under grade) and then fill in the B+
oval with a pencil.
>
If Jane Doe didn't write the final examination and she has not passed the
course you would fill in F (under grade) and the DNW box underqualifiers.

Please note the only box in the qualifiers you are allowed to use are the DNW
and the DEF ovals.  You may only use the DEF qualifier if you have signed and
we have received a copy of the Petition form.  Please note that on your science
grade sheets, you may not use this qualifier as the student must formally
petition through student programmes.  Complicated - sometimes but ...
>
If you have someone attending your class who is not on the list (you really
shouldn't) please add their name to the back of the appropriate sheet with the
correct information.
>
 Please complete the "GRADES DISTRIBUTION PROFILE" sheet and return it with
your
grades.  These forms will be forwarded for review to the Chair of the Academic
Standards Committee.
>
If your grades do not fall within the following standards, they are classified
as Atypical and must be rationalized in writing.
>
For Faculty of Arts Courses
