At the conclusion of each seminar, the instructor submits a written evaluation of each student which takes into account the student’s ability to reason and articulate thoughts and ideas. Areas covered on the evaluation may include preparation for seminar sessions, class participation, presentations made, performance on any examinations and quality of written material submitted. Students receive a grade for each seminar (Credit, Non-credit or Incomplete). All students must pass every class with a grade of Credit. A student who has received an Incomplete or a Non-Credit must make up the work to the satisfaction of the Instructor in consultation with the Chief Academic Officer (Dean), and receive a grade of Credit within the following quarter. The student may be provided with remediation and support and may be granted additional time to meet the course requirements. Every effort will be made to help the student successfully pass the class, but if he/she cannot do so within the additional period of time granted, the student will be provided with adequate warning and may be placed on academic probation by the Administration. An individual plan may be devised to assist the student. Should the student be unable to complete the work at the level deemed appropriate by the Instructor in consultation with the Dean, the student may be dropped from the program. An appeal may be made to the Grievance Committee.
Standards for Student Achievement
Evaluation and Assessment of Academic Progress and Performance: The Reiss-Davis Graduate Center continuously assesses the skills of its students. At the conclusion of each seminar, the instructor submits a thorough written evaluation of each student as described above under “Grading.” The student’s grasp of the theoretical material and his/her clinical application of theory and technique, are essential to satisfactory completion of each year of study. These evaluations are reviewed by the Chief Academic Officer (Dean)
In the degree program, a student who has received a grade of Non-Credit and has been unable to complete the course with a grade of Credit given additional time as described above under Standards for Student Achievement, will be provided with adequate warning and may be placed on academic probation by the Administration. This will be directly communicated to the student in writing by a letter from the Registrar.
