Reasons To Appeal A Grade
The most common reasons for appealing a final grade include:
- Inconsistent with performance: The grade is not consistent with the student’s actual performance in class.
- Clerical error: An error was made while calculating or recording a grade.
- Inconsistent grading procedures: An assigned grade is not consistent with the standards and procedures of the academic establishment.
- Discrimination: A grade was given on the basis of a student’s race, religion, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, disability, veteran status, etc.
- Personal bias: A grade was assigned out of personal malice toward a student.
