EP.99.05 Resolution on the Plus/Minus Grading System

The Committee recommends the Senate adopt the following Resolution: "All faculty should be REQUIRED to announce to their classes at the beginning of the semester (before the drop date) whether or not they will employ the plus/minus grading system. Multi-section courses, which are coordinated and monitored by a single professor or group of professors, must be consistently graded: i.e., all sections must use the same grading system (plus/minus or no plus/minus). Consistent and uniform grading policies should exist in all sections."
