That the university reaffirm the graduate grading policies printed in the
1997-1999 Graduate Catalog:
"In regular graduate courses the letter grades of A, B, C, F, I
(Incomplete), and AU (Audit) will be used for grading student performance.
For these, research reports/projects, and practicum courses H (Honors), P
(Pass), F (Fail), and I (Incomplete) will be used. In workshop courses P
(Pass) and F (Fail) will be used."
The motion from the floor of the Faculty Senate to use plus and minus
grades was intended to apply to undergraduate grading only. A change in
the graduate grading policy was not considered. A majority of the graduate
program coordinators, sitting as members of the Graduate Course and
Program Review Committee, have not found a compelling reason for changing
the existing grading policy.
