Assignments and Evaluation

This brochure provides advisory information concerning assignments and evaluation. The definitive workload and marking scheme will be the one provided by the instructor at the beginning of the course. The Department is governed by the University Grading Practices Policy and students are directed to the appropriate pages of the Calendar of the Faculty of Arts and Science for full details

Overall assessment

The Faculty of Arts & Science recommends that a percentage of the final mark include an item that reflects “the level of performance of individual students and of the class generally.” This percentage may be based on “class participation or equivalent” and is intended by the Faculty to provide instructors with a small measure of “flexibility in determining final marks”. The Department of French uses the term “overall assessment” to designate this grading item. Since the nature of participation and class work varies considerably, it is left to individual instructors to provide students with additional information about their calculation of this item. Students are reminded that instructors are not permitted to reveal final marks before the date of their official publication by the Faculty of Arts and Science.


Revue Arborescences

Considérant que rien de ce qui touche la langue française ne lui est étranger, la revue Arborescences se veut un espace de réflexion sur les enjeux actuels des études françaises aussi bien en littérature, en linguistique qu’en didactique.
