Coronavirus Covid-19 Updates > Updates > March 16, 2020—Faculty Grading Deadline, OTE
March 16, 2020
Thank you for your dedication and hard work as we enter Winter quarter finals week. I know this week will feel very different from our usual finals week. Rest assured I understand the extra hours of work that you are all dedicating to the success of our students.
I am writing with some updates that come in response to questions I have received:
In order to give you some, albeit minimal, breathing room, the deadline for turning in grades for Winter quarter has been extended to midnight on Sunday, March 29, 2020. That gives you two additional days to grade final exams and compile final grades for your winter classes.
Student evaluations of teaching (OTE) for both winter and spring continue as planned. I understand your concerns about the potential for negative reviews for courses that would have been face-to-face. I make a commitment to you that Spring 2020 OTEs of courses that were moved to remote modality because of COVID-19 will not be held against you in any review, or promotion and tenure decisions.
