Procedures for Mark Appeal at CBe-learn

  1. Students must discuss a disputed mark on a test, project, exam or assignment with the teacher prior to seeking an appeal. This discussion must take place within the duration of the term, within two weeks of the teacher's feedback and grade being assigned. 

  2. If the student and teacher cannot resolve the mark within one week of initial discussion, the student must inform the teacher of their intention to appeal the mark of the assessment.

  3. If the mark remains in dispute, the next level of appeal is to the Assistant Principal who will implement the appeal procedure.
    • The student will identify, to the Assistant Principal, which one test, project, exam or assignment they are requesting to be reassessed.
    • The Assistant Principal informs the teacher of the formal appeal being requested by the student.
    • The specific test, project, exam or assignment will be reassessed by another qualified CBe-learn teacher, who is a member of the Alberta Teachers' Association.
    • The second (reassessed) mark will be accepted and will replace the final mark.

  4. Following the investigation and reassessment, the Assistant Principal shall report the findings to the student and advise the teacher of the actions taken.

  5. If the situation is still unresolved, a further appeal should be made to the principal. The principal will review the evaluation process undertaken and issue a final statement.

  6. A student who disputes a final course grade must consult with the subject teacher no later than the designated Mark Appeals Day. All final course marks are posted in D2L by the teacher prior to the Appeal Day.
