14 | P a g e Communication Studies 2017 - 2018 • If you think you've been unfairly evaluated, you can ask for a grade reappraisal (see #6. below) • You can petition. If the mark or marks are the result of circumstances over which you have not had any control (sickness, family matters, accident, etc.), you can petition to have the mark or marks removed from your transcript. There is a petition package that must be completed and supporting evidence to support your claim must be attached. • You can retake the course. The second grade will become the Grade of Record, and the first mark—while it stays on your transcript—is NOT averaged into your gpa. • You can work very hard the next session to bring up your average. 6. How do you get work reappraised? 6.1 During the school session If you question the mark you received in a lecture course with a tutorial leader, please approach your tutorial leader first during his/her office hours for clarification of the marking scheme. If you continue to be dissatisfied, make an appointment with the Course Director and seek his/her intervention. The Undergraduate Program Director can be asked to intervene if a dispute is unresolved, but he/she cannot change the mark. 6.2 Once final marks have been received If you think that your grade was not justified, you may submit a formal request to the Department (through the office of the Undergraduate Program Director). The form is available from the Department office or from our website: http://comn.laps.yorku.ca/files/2015/10/LAPS_Grade_Reappraisal_Form.pdf Requests for grade reappraisals must be submitted within 21 calendar days of the release of final grades. Students may ask for all written work, or just specific parts to be reassessed; please note that participation marks cannot be reassessed. The reassessment will, in the first case, be carried out by the Course Director (if s/he has not already seen the work), and then if the dispute continues, by an anonymous marker (another full-time teaching member of our department) who will receive the work with the student's name removed. As a result of the reappraisal, the original grade may be raised, lowered or confirmed. The grade reappraisal may take from 6-8 weeks; you will be notified in writing via letter to your home address. The decision of the Department may be appealed—on procedural grounds only—to the Faculty of Liberal Arts & Professional Studies' Committee on Student Appeals and Academic Integrity - . http://www.yorku.ca/tutorial/academic_integrity/polpoints.html Appeals must be submitted within 21 calendar days of receiving the Department's letter.
