OCAD switches to new grading policy

September 25, 2013

OCAD University has adopted a new grading policy that is based on an external set of criteria, replacing the former policy in which grades were assigned based on students’ performance relative to one another. The new grading scale comes after OCAD established program-level learning objectives and adopted undergraduate degree-level expectations, an assessment model that has become widely popular in higher education. Following the change, the university has invited any students who feel they have been graded either too high or too low to contact their instructor or student union. OCAD Statement
