Grade appeals can be time consuming for you, your chairperson, and your colleagues. But knowing what to do and who to contact can assist everyone involved. This interactive workshop will share suggested grading scales and methods, syllabus wordings, strategies to use during the semester, and how to most successfully respond to grade disputes should they arise.

Tim Griffin has experience with hundreds of grade disputes at NIU and reflecting on these will identify proactive strategies that faculty can use to reduce the probability and frequency of appeals.

Registration Information:

The workshop is open to NIU faculty, TAs, and staff. Advanced registration is required. 

Registration is closed for this program.
