The formal grading systems of JIBC reflect academic standards commonly used in post-secondary education and provide consistency of practice across the Institute. Grading clearly communicates the educational achievements of students within a course. All course grades reflect demonstrated achievement in meeting the specific learning outcomes for that course.
This policy sets out the grading systems utilized at JIBC and is intended to ensure the maintenance of high academic standards. This policy is not intended to stipulate how a faculty member evaluates student learning or provides feedback to students during a course, nor how the faculty member determines a final course grade.
