If you believe there was an error in the grading of your work, you may request a regrade. The purpose of regrades is not to provide a better score, but to provide a more accurate score. As a result, when a regrade is requested, the entire assignment or submission will be regraded. This can result in no change in score, or even in a reduction in score. (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.)
All regrade requests must be submitted according to the procedures below; requests that do not meet these requirements will not be considered. In particular, all regrade requests should include an explanation of what you believe was graded incorrectly and why. When possible, reference specific rubric elements.
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 grading TA Alex Johnson 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, Fadel Shtiui. Please contact them if you have any questions (shtiui).
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.
To request an exam regrade, you will fill out a Google Form (linked below). The form will ask you to indicate which problems you believe were graded incorrectly, what grading error(s) you believe were made, and why you believe your submission deserves more credit than you received. Your response must demonstrate that you have tested and/or considered your solution after receiving your grade and believe that there are specific errors that were made in grading your exam. Brett will regrade your entire exam and the new grade will replace your previous grade. (Note that your exam score may go down as a result of this.)
Please read and follow the instructions in the form carefully. Requests that do not follow the instructions or do not include sufficient detail will be denied and the original score will stand.
