FERPA The Family Educational Rights & Privacy Act (FERPA), enacted in 1974, is a federal law designed to safeguard the privacy of student records. Under FERPA, current and former students have the right to:
Inspect and review their education records.
Seek to have their records amended.
Limit disclosure of information from their records.
Educational institutions that receive funds under any program administered by the U.S. Secretary of Education are required by law to comply with FERPA.
Under FERPA, a school official is defined as any staff or faculty member who has a legitimate educational interest. Access to student records is based on a demonstrated need to know. FERPA Training Page
The Academic Alert (formerly known as Early Alert) referral system is a program through which faculty may identify students who are having academic difficulty. The goal is to help connect students with support services across campus. If you have a student with academic issues such as:
Academic Advising at SET SET has an experienced advising team that works closely with the faculty to ensure that any student issues are resolved. Our advising teams work with prospective and current SET students. Please visit the SET advising page and make sure to include all advising members.

CSS Faculty Only - All 497 students (internships) are sponsored by a single instructor. Please ask the CSS student to reach out to Monika Sobolewska.
There are a number of ways students can get help in SET programs and on campus. We generally recommend that students see their professor during office hours. However, not all students are comfortable with that, so there are other support systems on campus.
CSS Mentors are undergraduate students in the labs (DOU 110) that can help students (tutor-style) for most of the intro classes (i.e. 142, 143, 305, 321, 333, 371) and even some of the "middle" classes (i.e. 342).
Writing tutors can help with writing (TCSS 325 - Computer Ethics), and the quantitative tutors at the TLC help with all things quantitative (Pre-Calculus, Calculus, Statistics). For our students, the quantitative part of the TLC can be helpful for TCSS 321 (Discrete Math) and other courses that require writing proposals.
Visit the TLC website for complete information on academic support services offered for students.

Undergraduate Teaching Assistants: Work in the TCSS 142 and TCSS 143 labs and assist in labs in other programs. They also assist in the 390 workshops for all SET programs.
Grader Policy 1. 35+students enrolled in course(s) = 5 hours with a grader
2. 70+students enrolled in course(s) = 10 hours that can be distributed between two graders or one grader.
It's very important that you make sure that your grader doesn't overcharge and that you keep tabs on their hours.
Sections of TCSS 390 are optional problem-solving workshops that meet 4 hours per week. Students sign up for credit (C/NC). In these workshops, students practice working on problems related to the course they are taking.
All workshops are numbered 390; for example, TCSS390, TCES390, etc. Workshops offer the opportunity to practice and discuss problems related to specific courses in the core curriculum, and are overseen by a faculty member and a Undergraduate Teaching Assistant. 390 Workshops can help students solve problems and also develop a deeper understanding of the material.
Couse Evaluations The School of Engineering and Technology conducts online course evaluations at the end of each course. If you have questions, please contact Gabi Crosby at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Gabi will send out a notification to all faculty letting them know when the evaluations will open and close.
Course evaluations are used for faculty reappointments, promotions, and for tenure and promotion.
Please encourage your students to complete them, before the closing date.
UW Guidelines strictly recommend on NOT grading on behavior or attendance. You can however grade on participation, but this needs to be clear in the Syllabus and how the participation grading is done must be explained clearly with a rubric. No more than 15% should be towards participation. It's a good idea to have some expectations about the use of electronics and behaviors in the classroom.
Consistent and timely grading to provide feedback is important to be an effective teacher. List your percentages and grading policies clearly in your Syllabus. Submitting Grades
If you are teaching a course with 35 or more students, or if you have a 3 course load (lecturers), you can request a grader. Set your expectations with the grader and give them a clear rubric on how to grade, and when it should be completed. You can have them fill out the rubric and leave comments in there for you. It is important to check the grader's work and adjust the grades if necessary.
Some of the Faculty use the attached grading scale, as there is no standard policy for how percentages translate to grade. Feel free to make your own, it is a good idea to include this in the syllabus.
"Wish someone had told me these things before..."
Make up testing Make up testing is available on request by the Faculty. You do have to make arrangements early and fill out some forms. For more details, visit the Make Up Testing page.
