Re-grading Policy

In writing your re-grading policy, consider the following questions:

  • Will you allow students to request that assignments be re-graded?
  • If so, what is the protocol for requesting a re-grade (e.g., must be submitted in writing, must be accompanied by an office hours visit, etc.)?
  • Is there a deadline after which students cannot request that an assignment be re-graded (e.g., two weeks after the assignment has been returned)?
  • If the assignment is re-graded, are students eligible to lose as well as gain points? If so, be sure to make this clear to students.
  • Are there any exceptions to this policy?
