Through its assessment of effort, labor-based grading is a fair way to grade UMD students
"Why couldn’t they have done it last semester?”
Why doesn’t UMD actually care about its students?
Since the grading policy announcement, opposition has been fierce.
Organizers held a student forum and launched a survey that's garnered more than 1,600 responses.
The town hall comes days after the university announced it would not implement pass/fail grading this fall.
UMD's withdrawal extension is not an adequate substitute for a pass/fail system.
UMD instead extended the deadline for students to withdraw from a class by three weeks.
