You may request to have your work regraded, but when you do so, you are submitting it for a complete regrade. Your score can go down as a result. For example, you might get back a point on an assignment that shouldn't have been taken off but you might lose other points that should have been taken off. Or you might get points back on one exam question only to find that you should have lost points on some other exam question.
Homework, labs and exams are graded differently and so regrade requests are handled differently for each:
Students are encouraged to first discuss homework grading with their individual TA. If you aren't sure why you lost a point or if you disagree with the TA's evaluation, you should start by talking to your TA to see if you can resolve it directly. If not, you can request a regrade.
For homework regrade requests, first, contact your TA to make sure you have reached an imapasse. If you still believe that your assignment was graded incorrectly, then you may submit a regrade request to our head TA Miya Natsuhara by filling out this Regrade Request form.
Lab attendance is managed by our undergraduate head TA Althea Poteet so contact them if you have any questions (ayp2).
Exams are graded collectively by the course staff, so individual TAs have less power to deal with exam grading issues. A TA can correct obvious errors like an addition error or an obviously correct answer that has been marked as incorrect. For more detailed grading issues, you should request a regrade.
For exam regrades, give your exam to Whitaker along with a short note describing what part of the exam you think was graded incorrectly.
Midterm regrade requests must be submitted by Monday, November 27th.
Final regrade requests must be submitted by Friday, January 5th.
You may slip your exam under Whitaker's door if he isn't in his office, CSE210.
You are required to test your exam solutions for certain programming problems before turning them in for a regrade. If you want a regrade of problem 8 on the midterm, then you must use the corresponding program to test your solution.
- Test8.java (for testing answers to midterm question #8)
You can use this testing program to find out how close your solution is to being correct. If you find that your solution was either correct or close to being correct, then turn in your correct solution to our catalyst dropbox and then in your note to Whitaker, describe how close you were to having the right answer. You still have to turn in your original exam to have the regrade take place.
Please note: This is not an opportunity to turn in a second answer. It is intended to allow you to show how close your original answer was to being right.
