University of Windsor- Advocate for Educational Change sign now

In signing this petition, you agree that there is a discrepancy with the clarity in assignment requirements and communication between students and professors in undergraduate courses offered at the University of Windsor and that a structured grading system needs to be made mandatory. Assignment requirements are allowed to be vague, and this ambiguity can allow for grades to entirely reflect the instructor’s subjective views rather than having them categorized and explained in a structured manner. Without a structured system the instructor: has unprecedented control over marks, is not required to communicate the reason for a grade to the student, can give a grade with no adherence to the course or subject being studied.

This petition is to advocate that it be made mandatory for all assignments in undergraduate courses that are worth more than 4.9% of the total course grade to have categorized grading rubrics, each category holding a maximum grade value of 25%. In doing this assignments: will have clearly specified requirements along with their corresponding grade value, will have a set precedent on the instructor’s subjective views in relation to marks, will communicate the reason for grades in a structured manner between the instructor and student.

The University of Windsor offers courses that do not follow systematic instruction, and in doing so it has failed to comply with how education is defined. This petition is also to hold the University of Windsor legally responsible for offering a fraudulent service.

Please sign if you agree with the problem, solution, and retribution stated above.
