Regrades are done per competency, not per assignment. All regrade requests must be submitted at least a week ahead of the last class of the quarter. Please check with your TA about what exactly is required for a regrade for any given competency.


Assignment grading will be broken into two parts, as described in the syllabus. The first part will be participation, which adds up to 10% of your grade. The second part will be broken into competencies. Some of these are assessed only once, some multiple times. We have broken these into categories as described below. In addition, everything you submit in this class has to have inclusive language and include accessible documents.

Your grade in the class will be based on whether you achieve non competent, competent or excellent in each of these topics, averaged over all the times that you are assessed.
