11.12 Student Assistants

Approved by Academic Council on April 26, 2001

The use of students to assist in laboratory instruction, paper grading, and caring for materials in connection with the instructional program may be authorized whenever classes are large or require special services. If such needs arise, provision should be made for the required funds when budget requests are submitted.

It is the policy of the University not to place an undergraduate in full charge of a class or any activity of a class. Such a student should be used only as an assistant. Students who are enrolled in a course may not serve as an assistant in that course. If an assistant is used in checking tests, the checking ought to be of only a routine nature and not to involve evaluative judgments; the latter are the responsibility of the instructor.

It is the responsibility of the instructor to whom an assistant is assigned to supervise the assistant's activities and evaluate the assistant's performance.
