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. Your entire assignment will be regraded, which may result in a lower grade.
Lab attendance is managed by our head lab TA, DK Kim. Please contact them if you have any questions (dkim776).
Exams are graded collectively by the course staff, so individual TAs have less ability to deal with exam grading issues. A TA can correct obvious mistakes like an addition or transcription error. For more detailed grading issues, including any re-evaluation of your answer, you should request a regrade.
For exam regrades, bring your exam to Brett along with a written note describing what part of the exam you think was graded incorrectly and why. The note must demonstrate that you have tested and/or considered your solution after receiving your grade and believe there are specific cases that were incorrectly evaluated. Brett will regrade your entire exam. The new grade will replace the previous grade. You may bring your exam to Brett after lecture or during his office hours. You may also slip your exam under Brett's door if he isn't in his office, CSE446. Please note: This is not an opportunity to turn in a new or modified answer. It is intended to allow you to claim that your original answer deserved more credit than it was given and to rectify grading errors. Submitting a regrade request with a modified answer will be considered an academic misconduct violation.
For the midterm, you MUST run the verifier program for question 8 (SameDashesVerifier.java) prior to requesting a regrade, and you must include a description of the results in your regrade request.
All midterm regrade requests must be submitted by Thursday, November 29.
For the final exam, you MUST run the verifier program for question 10 (CollapseDigitsVerifier.java) prior to requesting a regrade, and you must include a description of the results in your regrade request.
All final exam regrade requests must be submitted by Monday, January 14, 2019.
