Grading and assessment

Assessment of learning through effective assignment design and effective grading is integral to the teaching process. At UVic all instructors and faculty are required to use the Senate-approved percentage grading scale.

When planning your assignments and exams, remember to plan how you will assess them. For assignments, consider creating a grading key tip sheet. For more information about how to design assessment in tandem with your assignments and exams, see Assignment Design.
