Senate membership
Declaration of vacancy
As required under section 36 (6) of the Universities Act, the following vacancy on
Senate was declared:-
Mr. N. Akiha - student representative of the Faculty of Commerce and Business
Administration
From the Board of Governors
Notification of approval in principle of Senate recommendations - subject, where
applicable, to the proviso that none of the programs be implemented without formal
reference to the President; and that the Deans and Heads concerned with new programs
be asked to indicate the space requirements, if any, of such new programs.

Carried
Accessibility of marked final examination papers
At the February 20, 1980 meeting a proposed Calendar statement concerning
accessibility of marked final examination papers was referred to the Faculties for
consideration of its administrative implications with a request that they report back to
Senate at the April meeting.
In response, a significant number of Faculties requested that a time limit be
specified after which an application to view a marked final examination would not be
accepted. All replies emphasized that such access be purely for pedagogic purposes and
not bear upon the review of assigned standing which was already provided for under
University regulations. It was also recommended that the current rules governing
formal examinations remain in effect for the 1979-80 session.
It was proposed that the following Calendar statement, which would take effect
with the 1980-81 session, replace item 6 of the current "Rules governing formal
examinations":— 7350.
Wednesday,  April 23,   1980.
Accessibility of marked final examination papers  (continued)
"A final examination becomes the property of the University and must remain
in the possession of the University until destroyed or otherwise disposed of.
No later than one month from receipt of end of session results a student may
make written application to the Department Head, Director or Dean, who
will make every effort to arrange for the student to view her or his marked
final examination paper(s) with the course instructor or designate. The
purpose of this exercise is purely pedagogic and distinct from the Review of
Assigned Standing."
Dean Will ) That     the     proposed     Calendar     statement
Dean Finnegan  ) concerning     accessibility     of     marked     final
examination papers be approved.
In reply to a query as to why the proposal would not take effect until next year it
was stated that since some examinations had already taken place during the 1979—80
session it would not be appropriate to implement the proposal retroactively.
After further discussion the motion was put and carried.
Dean Webber stated that some of the material used by the Faculty of Medicine in
conducting examinations was obtained from external sources and was confidential. This
matter had been discussed with medical students and it had been agreed that this
material be exempt from the Senate proposal provided that the Faculty made available
to students as much information as possible without disclosing the actual questions.
Dean Webber ) That confidential  examination material  in the
Mr. Niwinski  ) Faculty of Medicine be exempt from the Senate
proposal.
Carried.
Reports of Committees of Senate
Admissions Committee
Progress report on basic competence in English composition
Dr. Smith presented the following report for information:
"The Committee presented an interim report to the November 14, 1979 meeting of
Senate, at which the following resolution was adopted:
"That Senate request the Admissions Committee to continue its search
for an independent test of students' writing ability and that the
Committee, in conducting its enquiry, consult with interested parties
in the University."
The Committee had proposed that before the question of an independent test was
resolved, an analysis of the performance of the 1979/80 English 100 class be
conducted. The Committee has proceeded on the assumption that its proposal was
not inconsistent with the resolution adopted by Senate on November 14, 1979 and
the following progress report is presented in this context. 7351
Wednesday,  April 23,   1980.
Reports of Committees of Senate
Admissions Committee
Progress report on basic competence in English composition  (continued)
"I.     Consultation
The Committee has met with representatives of the following groups:
a. the English   100 Committee (Dr. A. Parkin, Chairman;    Dr. D. G.
Stephens, Acting Head of the Department)
b. the Arts I Committee (Dr. G. Creigh)
c. the   English   Education  Department   in   the  Faculty  of  Education
(Dr. R. McConnell)
d. the   Senate   ad   hoc   Committee   on   English   Standards   (Dr.   R.
McConnell, Dr. J. Wisenthal)
The Committee invited comments on the subject from Faculty Deans responsible
for programs involving admission of students to the first year of University study
(for whom English 100 is a required course). The Committee also invited the B.C.
English Teachers Association to submit a brief on the subject. On December 17,
1979 a forum involving several interested groups was held.
2.     Literacy at UBC
The University is committed to the principle that its graduates should be literate.
Satisfactory completion (preferably in first year) of English 100: Literature and
Composition, and the Composition Examination is the generally accepted criterion
of literacy. The standard of literacy and student performance in English 100 are
inextricably related, and we cannot discuss the literacy problem without reference
to English 100. However, the Committee is aware that its primary mandate
relates to admissions, not curriculum, although the following statement is part of
its terms of reference: "To review performance in relation to admissions policy,
and to make recommendations to Senate".
In the past, the literacy problem at UBC has been seen as the degree to which the
level of achievement in English 12 (as distinct from overall GPA, or some other
indicator) was related to success in English 100. There are several difficulties in
making this linkage between English 12 and English 100 because it assumes that
grades from all schools on English 12 are equivalent in standard; that members of
the English 100 class in any one year are roughly equivalent in their ability to use
English as the medium of verbal and written communication; that English 12 is an
appropriate preparation for English 100; that all sections of English 100 offer the
same experience in terms of content, practice in writing, and assessment; and that
it is appropriate to expect completion of the English 100 requirement in the first
(or second) year of study rather than in the third or fourth year of study. Our
discussions with the several groups identified above cast doubt upon these
assumptions to a greater or lesser degree.
The definition of literacy is extremely important. The April 21, 1976 Senate
resolution referred to "basic competence in English Composition", which suggests
that of the students who are admitted to U.B.C. programs requiring English 100,
some are competent writers and some are not.    The expectation of the English 7352.
Wednesday,  April 23,   1980.
Reports of Committees of Senate
Admissions Committee
Progress report on basic competence in English composition
"2.     Literacy at UBC  (continued)
Department is that students admitted to UBC (who must have at least a P in
English 12) and who enrol in English 100 can read with comprehension the assigned
texts and can write clear and correct English prose. Presumably, the course is
designed to develop these abilities. It should also be noted that English 100 is a
prerequisite for all 200—level courses in the Department, and it is not therefore
solely a service course.
English 100 is different from all other courses in the University in at least two
respects: firstly, it is a long—standing policy that a[[ students admitted to the
first year of University study must enrol in English 100 in their first year and must
eventually pass the course. There are two exceptions: in the Faculty of Arts,
students may complete Arts I instead of English 100. In the Faculty of
Agricultural Sciences, enrolment in English 100 may be delayed until the second
year. (This practice arose from a proposal presented to the February 26, 1969
meeting of Senate that English 100 not be required of students in the Faculty of
Agricultural Sciences.) Secondly, it is the only course excepted from the
resolution that no student may enrol in a course for credit more than twice. Thus,
English 100 fulfills a University as well as a Faculty or the specific program
requirement, and consequently the objectives, organization and content of the
course are of interest to a much larger group of people than is normally the case.
3.     An Admissions Test
The use of standard tests for streaming (e.g., the English Placement Test) and
promotion (e.g., the Composition Examination) is a much less controversial issue
than the use of a standard test for admission. There are sharp differences of
opinion on this issue. The arguments presented to the Committee against an
admissions test include: the limitations of testing procedures increase the
possibility of exclusion for many capable students in the "grey area" of
achievement; writing ability is never fully learned, there is continuous growth and
therefore it is unrealistic to establish a firm threshold of acceptance; and the
writing ability of entering students has shown steady improvement in recent years
so that the concerns expressed in 1976 are no longer as pressing. The arguments
for an admissions test presented to the Committee include: the relationship
between English 12 grades and English 100 marks is not a sufficiently strong basis
for an informed, reliable and fair admissions decision; the use of EPT scores in
conjunction with English 12 grades resulted in more accurate streaming of
students in English 100 sections; performance on the Composition Examination
and in English 100 demonstrates that students who lack basic competence in
writing are being admitted; and a test would assist teachers and students alike by
providing a uniform standard against which all performance could be matched.
The Committee feels that two aspects of this issue are of particular significance:
firstly, the role of grades on such a test in the admissions process, in place of or in
addition to other information (English 12 grades, EPT score, etc.); and secondly,
the relative merits of a standard test from a testing agency compared with a test
designed and administered  by  UBC.     The first  issue can be resolved without 7353.
Wednesday,   April 23,   1980.

"3.     An Admissions Test (continued)
difficulty: there is widespread consensus that if an admissions test were to be
adopted, it should complement information already available in the admissions
process. The second issue is much more difficult to resolve because it raises both
technical questions of statistical validity, reliability and predictability, and
questions of the appropriateness of the use of a standard test developed primarily
for use in another country.
a. External tests: There are 23 standard tests listed in the 1978 edition of
The Mental Measurement Yearbook (edited by D. K. Buros), most of which are
unsuitable (this statement is based on the Committee's reading of the reviews of
these 23 tests in The Eighth Mental Measurement Yearbook). The Committee met
with a representative of the College Entrance Examination Board in June 1979, to
discuss the Composition Test with Essay. While the Committee expressed
reservations about the adoption of such a test in its interim report to Senate on
November 14, 1979 (reservations that persist), it appears to be the least
objectionable of all 23 tests available.
b. An Internal Test: The Department of English has suggested that a
two-hour test consisting of the following three components would serve the
purpose:
i.     an extended (300 to 400 words) piece of writing, which might involve any
one of several tasks, depending partly on the interests of the students;
ii.     comprehension questions on a passage of plain prose (500 to 800 words);
iii.   a proof-reading exercise (300 words).
This proposal assumes collaboration with interested parties in the University
in the development of the test; administration in such a way that students could
attempt it more than once; and assessment by a committee preferably including
experienced post-secondary teachers. The purpose of the test would be to
identify with reasonable accuracy those students who are clearly not ready to
attempt English 100.
There are several aspects of this proposal that require careful evaluation. Firstly,
the development of such a test would not be without cost in terms of time and
money. To say that there is a need for validation and reliability assessment is not
to question the academic judgement or professional integrity of faculty members
in the Department of English (and in other Faculties and Departments of the
University who would be involved in such a truly co-operative enterprise).
Secondly, the proposal assumes that the test would be taken before the decision on
whether a student may enrol in English 100 is taken. This implies that it would be
administered before students arrived at UBC (and enrolled in English 100 in their
first year) or that the requirement for English 100 to be taken in the first year be
relaxed (as is the case in the Faculty of Agricultural Sciences). Thirdly, the
assessment of the tests completed by any one group of students would be a
formidable undertaking, quite separate from the normal requirements of assessing
English 100 and the English Composition tests. 7354.

Progress report on basic competence in English composition  (continued)
"4.     The Performance of the 1979/80 English 100 Class
The class is composed of four groups of students: secondary school graduates in
1979, or in 1978 (or earlier); transfer students from a B.C. community college, or
a B.C. (or other) university. Much of the proposed analysis will refer to the 1979
secondary school graduates. At this stage, our intention is to use the following
variables in the analysis:
a. Senior Secondary School Performance (in English and other subjects)
b. English Placement Test Scores
c. Composition Examination results
d. English 100 standing
e. Completion of a Centre for Continuing Education Workshop
f. Overall standing for the year
5.     Plans
The Committee expects to report to Senate reasonably early in the 1980/81
session on this analysis and on the broader question of admission standards and
procedures."
Curriculum Committee  (See Appendix 'B')
Dr. Wisenthal presented the report which recommended approval of: a new course
in Chemical Engineering; new courses, course changes and additional regulations
submitted by the School of Architecture; a proposal by the Faculty of Arts that the
arrangement to crosslist Sociology 318 and Mathematics 203 be continued with no
stated term; unit values and grades for revised Dentistry courses; changes to the
First Year of the B.R.E. program and new courses and course changes submitted by
the School of Physical Education and Recreation; program changes in Rehabilitation
Medicine; course changes and a proposal to introduce an English composition
requirement submitted by the Faculty of Science.
Referring to the proposals submitted by the School of Physical Education and
Recreation, Dr. Wisenthal pointed out that before recommending approval of
proposed changes in the B.R.E. program the committee preferred to await the
development of certain courses included in the program and therefore were
recommending approval at this time of only the changes to the First Year of the
program. Dr. Wisenthal also pointed out that approval of the following new courses
proposed by the School of Physical Education and Recreation was being withheld
pending clarification:  PHED 300, 368, 369 and 400. 7355.

Ad hoc Committee on the Implementation of the Universities Act
Dr. Smith presented the report. At the October 10, 1979 meeting of Senate a
motion concerning replacement procedures for student representatives on Senate was
tabled. As a result of this the committee has since concluded that the existing
replacement procedures are adeguate.   These are outlined below:
Student Representatives
1. The Universities Act, Section 35 (2):
"The senate of each university shall be composed of
(h) a number of full-time students, equal to the number
provided in clauses (a) to (f), elected from the Student
Association in a manner that ensures that at least one
student from each faculty is elected;"
Seventeen students are elected to Senate each year, five at-large and one
from each faculty.
Procedures: In September each year the proposed schedule is discussed with
the A.M.S. Elections Officer and a proposed schedule is then submitted to
Senate for approval.
In 1979 there were five weeks allowed for nominations. These were called for
by three advertisements in The Ubyssey, November 16, 20 and 22. The close
of nominations has been approved as being the last day of the first term
which was December 21, 1979. Each undergraduate society is sent a copy of
the advertisement and a supply of nomination forms. Students were then on
vaction until January 7, 1980 and there were then two weeks for campaigning
before the elections on January 21, 22, 1980.
2. Replacement Procedures
These were adopted at the Senate meeting of April 21, 1976 (the authority for
these resolutions is provided for in Section 36 (4) (b) of the Universities Act: 7356.
Wednesday,  April 23,   1980.
Reports of Committees of Senate
Ad hoc Committee on the Implementation of the Universities Act
Student Representatives
2. Replacement Procedures  (continued)
" (4)    Where a vacancy arises on the senate, the vacancy shall be
filled,
(a) ...
(b) in   the   case   of   an   elected  member,   in   the  manner
prescribed by the senate. ")
(a) Student representatives from individual Faculties
That Senate appoint a replacement on the recommendation of the
appropriate undergraduate society or societies; the recommendation to
be forwarded in writing to Senate by the S.R.A. (now S.A.C.).
(b) Student representatives from the student body at large
That Senate appoint a replacement on the written recommendation of
the S.R.A. (now S.A.C.).
3. Term of Office of Student Representatives:
The term of office of a member of senate elected under section 35 (h) is "one
year and thereafter until his successor is elected".
4. When no nomination is received:
When no nomination is received for a particular constituency the incumbent is
advised that he or she is eligible to continue as the student representative for
the particular constituency for another year as long as he or she continues to
be a registered student at the University.
Where the incumbent is unwilling or unable to continue the seat remains
vacant until the next regular election.
5. Conclusions of the Committee:
The Act requires that the Registrar conduct the elections of student
representatives to Senate and the replacement procedures deliberately make
provision for appointment rather than election in order to ensure that only
one set of elections is conducted each year. The Committee agreed that the
present procedures give adequate opportunity for each Faculty to elect a
representative each year and make provision for replacement procedures in
the event that a student representative for unforeseen reasons has to resign
in the middle of a year-term of office. 7357.
Wednesday,   April 23,   1980.
Faculty of Commerce and Business Administration
Dean's Honour List
Dean Lusztig  ) That the words "Dean's Honour List" be placed
Dr. Heaver      ) on a student's transcript of record if an average
of 80% or better has been achieved in the
program of an academic year of at least 12.0
units in the first year or 15.0 units in second,
third, or fourth years. To qualify a student
must pass in all courses;  and
That the words "with Honours" be placed on the
transcript of record, on the degree certificate
and on the degree parchment of students
graduating with the B.Com. degree if a
student's average over the 36.0 units of the
third and fourth years is 80% or better.

Faculty of Education
Proposal that the Faculty be restructured into University departments
It was stated in the material circulated that the report of the President's Review
Committee on the Faculty of Education (February 1979) recommended that the
Faculty be restructured into University departments. The Faculty concurred with the
recommendation and approved the establishment of the following departments:—
1. A department comprising the present Departments of Educational Psychology
and Special Education, to be called The Department of Educational
Psychology and Special Education.
2. A department comprising the present Departments of Educational
Foundations and Social Studies Education, to be called The Department of
Social and Educational Studies.
3. A department comprising the present Departments of English Education,
Reading Education and Modern Languages Education, to be called The
Department of Language Education.
4. A department comprising the present Departments of Mathematics Education
and Science Education, to be called The Department of Mathematics and
Science Education.
5. A department comprising the present Departments of Art Education and
Music Education, to be called The Department of Visual and Performing Arts
in Education.
6. A department comprising the Centre for the Study of Curriculum and
Instruction, and the present Departments of Communications Media and
Technology, School Librarianship, Early Childhood Education, Home
Economics Education, Business Education and Industrial Education, to be
called The Department of Curriculum and Instructional Studies.
7. A department comprising the present Department of Counselling Psychology,
to be called The Department of Counselling Psychology. 7358.

Faculty of Education
Proposal that the Faculty be restructured into University departments (continued)
The School of Physical Education and Recreation will function in part, and under
arrangements still to be worked out, as a department of the Faculty and the
present Department of Physical Education (Teacher Preparation) will be
amalgamated with it.
For the time being, the existing Departments of Adult Education, Higher
Education and Educational Administration will be affiliated in a unit that will
have quasi—departmental status within the Faculty.

Part 2.  Graduation Design Project  (Arch. 499 - 41fe credits)
No student will be permitted to proceed with Arch. 499 until he has passed
Arch. 498 and reduced his outstanding course requirements to 4fe units or less,
which may then be taken simultaneously with 499 in a final term. Each student
enrolled in Arch. 499 shall have a Committee, the Chairman of which will be a
member of the faculty chosen from an approved list by the student. The
Chairman, in consultation with the student, will appoint 2 additional members to
the Committee who may be from the School faculty or the community at large.
The student will proceed under the direction of the Chairman who will call a
minimum of three meetings of the Committee at appropriate stages of the project
to review progress. At the final meeting of the Committee prior to the last day
of classes in the term in which the project was begun, the Committee will
determine whether the project is complete and the Chairman shall, in consultation
with the Committee, assign a grade.
A student who has achieved a passing grade will be required to make a public
presentation of his/her work at a date scheduled by the School, and to submit a
final report in duplicate by a specified deadline in order to complete the
requirements for the degree.
If a fail grade is assigned the student will be required to withdraw from the School
for a minimum period of 12 months. He may then register for Arch. 499 and begin
again with a new topic, mentor and committee.
If the Committee decides that the graduation project is not complete the student
must re-register for the next consecutive term. The student must complete the
project by the end of that term. If he fails to do so a fail grade will be assigned
and the student will be required to withdraw and recommence as above.
