Some students may require more time to demonstrate mastery than one subscription period allows. Unless otherwise stated in the syllabus, you may repeat assessments within a course one time. In other words, two attempts to successfully demonstrate mastery of any given assessment are allowed.
At the conclusion of each subscription period, a letter grade is assigned to reflect your level of mastery in each course. In addition to letter grades MD and M, you may see a grade of PR. The PR grade may be given to a student who has shown progress in mastering one or several competencies within a given course, but who may not have attempted all assessments. You may earn up to 5 PR grades in a single course.
For course repeated at UW-Parkside, only the most recent credits attempted and the grade earned is used to compute the GPA. All attempts and the resulting grades will appear on your transcript.
A PR grade earned in a course will count as one attempt, but will not be calculated into a grade point average. Should you re-enroll in your course, a grade will be assigned for the second attempt, and this grade and credit value will be used in the calculation of a GPA.
Learn more about mastery, grades, and grade point average through UW Flexible Option. Additional information on repeat policies and grading scales is also found in each syllabus, and in many cases, within the assessment descriptions themselves.
