Retention of Exams and Other Evaluation Instruments
Faculty Responsibilities Regarding Retention of Exams and Other Evaluation Instruments
Exams, papers, projects or other tangible items used in the evaluation of students need not be retained by the instructor beyond the end of the term of evaluation, if there was an announced opportunity for students to retrieve same during the term. For final exams or other evaluation instruments where no announced opportunity for student review existed before the end of the term, instructors should retain the materials for two full quarters. While special situations may arise requiring deviation from this goal, instructors will be responsible to defend any deviation in the event of a subsequent review of a student's evaluations.
