Paper-Review activity

Paper-review, in general, is an activity through which all students taking the exam have an opportunity to view and check their exam paper during a particular time period (which generally consists of a week) after the exam results are revealed.

Paper-review policy, in general, is as follows:

  1. To make use of paper-review, all students must take their exams at the pre-assigned rooms which are announced before the examination by the course coordination via SIS119. If you take the exam at the wrong place or fail to provide certain requirements related to exam regulations which in general are announced on the webpage right before the examination, such as forgetting to sign your exam paper etc., then for students in that situation neither displaying the exam score (until the end of paper-review period) nor making use of paper-review are available. When period is done, students in this category will be able to display their scores but they will no longer have an opportunity to see their papers or demand a paper-review.
  2. Before attending to the paper-review session, please make sure that you check the room where you took the exam and a sample solution of the examination.
  3. Paper-review period allows students to realize their mistakes and to provide double-check opportunity with their exam papers in case of any possible errors possibly arising while submitting the results into the local system SIS119. (For instance, miscalculations, submitting a wrong grade etc.)
  4. Keep in mind that due to both the time restriction and the large number of students who wish to see their papers, paper-review activity is NOT designed or better suited for long discussions about the solution procedures, asking for your paper-review assistant to elaborate or solve each question case by case or arguing about grading scheme (which is applied to all exam papers and determined by a group of people for each question) in an unreasonable manner etc. while there are other students waiting for their turns. In short, try to use your time wisely and do not forget to check the answer key before attending to your session.
  5. In addition to the above policy in (4), please be aware of the fact that paper-review activity is NOT the right place for bargaining for points/grades.
  6. During paper-review period, an assistant and a particular time period (in general 3 hours or more) are assigned to each student by the course coordination. The information related to this assignment is announced at SIS119 when exam scores are revealed.
  7. Each student is supposed to make use of paper-review at the specified time period.
  8. In case of any confliction with the specified time periods (hopefully with reasonable excuses) please contact your paper-review assistant before your pre-assigned time period(s) is over in order to determine an alternative time period if possible.
  9. During the paper-review session, you may object your paper if you make your reasoning clear. Once you object a particular question (or questions), your objected question(s) is re-evaluated at the end of paper-review period and your grade may be changed (if necessary).  Note that objecting a paper does not always mean that you will get an extra credit, in fact, in some cases it may also lead to lose a credit!
  10. Paper-review period (PRP) almost lasts for a week (except finals period at which PRP lasts for a couple of days) and the updated results are revealed on SIS119 (together with an announcement on the webpage) at the end of the week right after the pre-paper review results are published.
