Assessment and Grading

The University of Alberta's Assessment and Grading policy sets out the fundamental principles and core elements which characterize and guide the assessment of student performance and achievement in for-credit programming. 

The purpose of the policy is to promote both consistency in assessment and grading practices across the university and adherence to appropriate academic standards. It provides for the development of rules and processes that manage student assessment and related activities.
