Re: Submission of grades
Date: 1 December 97

I understand your frustration at being presented with what seem to you
to be unreasonably tight deadlines for grade submission. Please
understand that the staff are trying to set reasonable expectations on
grades so that it will be possible to deliver grade reports to
students by the time most students would expect them in early February
approval by Faculties). This is already uncomfortably late for many
students due to application deadlines for graduate school, etc.. (It
is also markedly later than many large research institutions manage.)
Since York offices are closed for the two weeks around the holidays,
if some grades are not submitted until the 17th or later in December,
they will have to be scanned in during January, which means further
delay. Obviously a general expectation can only be that, and some
course directors will not be in a position to reasonably complete the
grading process by then. However, if everyone waits until January, the
backlog in processing will mean really significant delays. The dates
which were communicated to you are not different in scope from those
which have been traditional for many years. Again, they are in fact
quite a bit less stringent than is common at many major universities.)
I trust that you, and your colleagues, will endeavour to get the
grades into our office as expeditiously as possible, given the
particular curricular circumstances of each course.
