Privacy and Security Issues in Grade Recording
Robert Steinke
Grad Student, Computer Science

TAs and GPTIs are usually required to receive student assignments, grade them, record grades, and return them to the students. Throughout this process there are important issues of student privacy, prevention of recording mistakes, and security against cheating that must be considered. Federal law protects students' rights to the privacy of their work. Misrecorded grades should not be a problem, but they can be if precautions aren't taken. Additionally, students will come to you claiming that you have made mistakes with their grade. Your record keeping system should be able to confidently prove or disprove the student's claim. Otherwise this could become an avenue for cheating. This talk will not deal with the grading of papers, but rather with the process of handling papers and recording grades. This talk counts as one discipline specific hour towards GTP certification.
