Regrade requests opened again for Midterm 2

December 19, 2019

Dear all,

We have been informed that some of you missed the regrade period for Midterm 2 as there was no e-mail announcement.

Regrade requests are going to be opened at 16:00 today on December 19, 2019 and closed at 16:00 tomorrow on December 20, 2019.

While making regrade request please keep in mind the following:

READ the sample solutions and your own solutions along with the grading rubrik and comments left for your solutions on Gradescope. Please keep in mind that, on Gradescope, a rubrik item is applied to you if and only if you see a check mark next to it. Do not worry about the rubrik items that are unchecked even if you could see them.

Please send a regrade request only in the case that you believe there is an inconsistency with the grading rubrik and your solution. Regrade requests such as

  • “I think I deserve more points.”
  • “I believe my solution is correct.” (without having a correct solution.)
  • “I meant something else.”
  • “Can’t I get more points for this?”
  • “Please regrade.”

which do not include any justification are totally meaningless and will not be taken seriously. Your regrade request should explicitly mention

  • what is the inconsistency between the grading rubrik and your solution and/or
  • why you should have taken more points according to the grading rubrik and/or
  • why the comment left for your solution is not correct and points should not have been taken off.

Please do not abuse the regrading system. In particular, do not send regrade requests of the form “I don’t understand why I lost points, I think my solution is correct.” unless you are certain that your solution is correct. (You can double check with assistants or your friends whether your solution is really correct before sending regrade requests.) When it comes to mathematics, your opinion does not matter, the truth does.

Best regards,
MATH111 Coordination.
