In accordance with the Charter of Student Rights, and subject to the conditions stated therein, students have the right to consult any written submission for which they have received a mark and the right to discuss this submission with the examiner.
The Faculty of Management recognizes two types of rereads or reassessments:
- reread of graded assessments (term papers, mid-terms, assignments, quizzes, etc.);
- reread of a final exam.
In both cases, rather than re-correct the work and then grade it as they would have done themselves, reviewers assess the appropriateness of the original grade based, for example, on the application of the grading key to the student's work. If a grade is deemed unfair, it is changed, whether the new grade is higher or lower than the original, i.e. the reviewer's grade takes precedence over the original grade.
Steps in a Re-Read
- Step 1: Check with your Instructor
- Step 2: Re-Read Deadlines
- Step 3: Submitting a Re-Read Request
- Step 4: Webform: Re-Read Request
Step 1: Check with your Instructor
In a case where a student feels that an error has been made in arriving at the final grade, the student must firstly consult with their instructor and discuss with them before making any requests. Before requesting a reread it is important that the student first should attempt to work out the issue with the instructor. A re-read can result in a grade being raised, lowered or stay unchanged. The outcome is final.
Final Exam Re-reads
If you haven't done so, please review your final exam before requesting a Re-read request.
