Business arising from the Minutes
Accessibility of marked examination papers - proposed Calendar statement
The following proposal had been circulated in connection with a motion passed at

in the possession of the University until destroyed or otherwise disposed of.
Upon receipt of written application from a student, the Department Head,
Director or Dean will make every effort to arrange for the student to view
her or his marked final examination paper (or papers) with the course
instructor. The purpose of this exercise is exclusively pedagogic, and
distinct from an informal review of the marks and also from the Review of
Assigned Standing."

requested to report back to Senate at the April meeting.
