Message for the End-of-the-Semester

Filed under: announcements — richardlstansfield @ 9:05 am

It’s the end of the semester, and here are some important announcements for you.

1. Here are your marks out of 80. They’re after the letter below. Scroll down and find your class. On the left is your student ID number. Next to it, on the right, is your score (#/80).

2. You can see your marks (out of 100) from today (June 23rd) at 5 pm, to June 29th, on the Inha portal site, http://portal.inha.ac.kr. The mark is your mark below (#/80) + your mid-term exam mark (#/20).

3. If you think that there was a mistake, you can ask me to check by leaving a comment here at this blog site. Do not send an e-mail to my Inha e-mail account, because I rarely check it. (My Inha e-mail account is very slow, clumsy, and inefficient, so I hate it.)

4. If you don’t think that there was a mistake, don’t ask for your mark to be changed. See the letter below for more details.

5. If you have a final mark of C or below, you can take the course again.

6. Read this letter.

Dear UE Student:

UE conversation classes are planned and conducted by UE teachers and each student is awarded a score out of 80 in the conversation class based on their performance in the areas of attendance, participation, quizzes, tests, and/or any additional assignments. This score must be curved and no two students may receive the same score. The UE teacher does not directly control the score of the midterm, nor the final letter grade that is awarded to the student. The midterm score (out of 20) is added to the conversation class score (out of 80). The total (out of 100) is evaluated relative to the rest of the students in the student’s track and a letter grade is awarded by UE administration. The UE teacher is not informed of the student’s final letter grade unless an error occurs.

Each UE teacher runs their classes professionally and assesses each student fairly, so there is little point in trying to argue or negotiate for a higher score—most UE teachers increase their students’ raw marks to fit into the grading curve anyway (so final marks are generally already inflated). Under the current relative-evaluation system, ultimately controlled by the administration, there is really nothing the UE teacher can do to change a mark unless an error has been made.

Teachers may share individual raw results with students who would like to know how they did on particular assessments, but beyond that, if there is no formal complaint or error, it remains in the best interest of the student to accept the score that was awarded to them. I hope this helps clarify things for you.

Sincerely,
Mr. Richard Stansfield
