Department of Economics Grading Policy

The Department of Economics follows the Faculty of Arts and Science Grading Policy.

Virtually all undergraduate economics courses use the "numbers in - letters out" approach described in the Faculty policy.  Some undergraduate economics courses that rely heavily on writing assignments (the economic history courses, for example) may use the "letters in - letters out" approach described in the Faculty policy. Find out more.


Electronic Plagiarism Checking (turnitin)

As part of the Department's policy regarding academic integrity, students are required to submit an electronic copy of their paper when they submit a printed copy for grading. BOTH are required.

If you are unsure about what constitutes plagiarism, as part of the Arts/Sci Academic Integrity Policy, take a look at the document "Avoiding Plagiarism" on the Writing Centre website. The Queen's Writing Centre is a great resource to help you improve your writing skills to prepare for jobs or further education.

Also, review Arts and Science Regulation 1 on Academic Integrity, which includes submitting the same piece of work in more than one course, buying or selling term papers, etc., as outlined in the 2010-11 calendar.
