Credit and evaluation policy
- Students receive credit for fulfilling minimum requirements. Plagiarism or academic dishonesty may lead to total loss of credit. Credit may be reduced due to unsatisfactory attendance (missing more than one class), missed or late papers, failure to submit a transcript self-evaluation during evaluation week, or unsatisfactory performance.
- The evaluation process is a central feature of education at Evergreen that allows students to learn by reflecting on their experiences. Students are required to submit transcript self-evaluations and faculty evaluations in order to receive credit for the program. Credit will be issued only after both these evaluations, as well as a full portfolio, have been submitted. Note : You may need to revise your self-evaluation subsequent to your evaluation conference. If so, you will be expected to revise it promptly and submit the revised transcript self-evaluation by Thursday of evaluation week. Evaluations of faculty may be submitted to the program secretary (Sharon Wendt, Sem II B2124), but they must be submitted prior to the conference. Portfolios, including a transcript self-evaluation, are due on the last day of class. If not turned in by this date, a “no credit” will be issued to the student. The student may petition to have the “no credit” changed if the portfolio is turned in within one week following the last class date.
- Award of full credit does not guarantee a good evaluation. It is possible to receive full credit yet receive a poor evaluation.
