Reread and Recheck Policy

Reread Policy 

If you think that the content of your final assessment was graded incorrectly, or that a portion of your exam was not graded, you can request a reread of your final assessment. In this case, you must first see your marked final assessment, either through an electronic source or a crowdmark URL link from your instructor. This is so that you can determine the specific question(s) or portion(s) of the exam that you think was marked incorrectly. Think of this form as a chance to speak directly with the faculty member who will be looking at your final assessment again. To help them understand why a reread may be necessary, be as precise as you can about where you think an error has occurred. Instead of saying “I think my assessment was marked too harshly,” or “I deserve more marks to get into another program,” note specific instances of disagreement and cite evidence from the course to back up your assertions. Even though you may not have access to your course materials while seeing your exam, do your best to show that your answers are substantially correct. 

Please note that a reread may result in a raised mark, a lowered mark, or no change.

Recheck Policy 

If you think there’s been a simple adding error on your exam or in the calculation of all of your term work, you can request a recheck of your course mark. A recheck may be requested with or without first requesting an electronic copy of your final assessment, but we strongly recommend that you view your marked exam before requesting a recheck. Students will be asked to provide a detailed description of the grading error for your course mark on the request form. Any requests for a grading change without proper evidence from the course material will NOT be considered by the department or the instructor.
