GTA/GA Policy: 3. Interacting with Students

GTAs/GAs should work together with the course instructor to avoid any conflict of interest during grading. GTAs/GAs have conflicts of interest in grading any family member, close friend, boyfriend, or girlfriend. In case of any conflict of interest, GTAs/GAs should make this information known to course instructors and GPD.

One practical way of solving conflict-of-interest problems is, if there are two or more GTAs/GAs for a course, to re-balance who grades which student. If there is just one GTA for the course, the course instructor should grade those students who have a conflict of interest with the GTA.
