The Grade of Incomplete: A Brief Review and Comment.
Counelis, James Steve
Current policy on the distribution of incomplete grades designates such grades as indicating postponement of an examination and/or other assignment for some serious reason. The current policy of converting a grade of incomplete to F after some stated time interval is open to question. Current university policy on the automatic conversion of incomplete grades to F should be reviewed. This document attempts to bring qualitative thought to bear upon the use of incomplete as a grade. Only when it is in the serious pedagogical and curricular interest of our student client should the grade of incomplete be issued. The student more often than the professor is the better judge of that interest. Chart 1 shows the proportion of incomplete grades issued per disciplines, their distribution being by percentage of incomplete grades awarded. (Author/KE)
