The table that follows itemizes the grade changes that were requested, rejected, and approved during the last seven years:
The Chair appreciates the dedicated work of all grade change committee members: Ken Fleak, Ernest Wiggins, Lisa Martin-Stuart, and Jon Wardrip. The attendance at this year's meetings was extremely high with all meetings having the needed quorum.
For 1998-99, Ernest Wiggins will serve as Chair. Ken Fleak is replaced by Thomas Stanford. The Committee members wish to issue special thanks to Jeanna Luker, Faculty Senate Office, for her handling of the massive amount of paperwork associated with the Committee and her helpful advice throughout the year.
The large majority of grade changes were justified by computation or transcription error. The majority of the rejected grade changes were due to faculty members attempting to assign a W to a grade that was reported as an F. All faculty members need to be aware that this type of change must be approved by the Scholastic Standards and Petitions Committee of the College in which the student is enrolled BEFORE coming to the Grade Change Committee.
