Approved by the Faculty Senate

BRIEF SUMMARY: This bill specifies the policy portion of the existing Faculty Handbook section on Eight-week Interim Grades (Chapter 3, Section C2).
REVISING “EIGHT-WEEK INTERIM GRADES” TO ESTABLISH A POLICY SECTION
BE IT RESOLVED THAT: the title of this section be changed from Eight-week Interim Grades to Eight-week Midterm Grades.
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED THAT: subject to the passage and approval of both this bill and its companion bill establishing a corresponding “procedures” section, Chapter 3, Section C2 of the Faculty Handbook be amended by replacing the existing content with the following “policy” section (with the companion “procedures” to follow it in the Handbook):
Eight-week Midterm Grades Policy
During the eighth week of each spring and fall semester, midterm grades will be reported to the Registrar's Office in an approved fashion for each undergraduate student in each class, as an indication of that student's academic performance as of that time. Internships, independent study classes, eight-week classes, and graduate classes are exempt from these reporting requirements. Interim grades will be reported in the same format (letter grade, credit/no credit) as the final course grade for that class. For studio, clinical, field classes, etc., in which progress may be difficult to assess by conventional means, a department may develop guidelines by which the instructor can gauge student progress for reporting purposes.
