At the end of each term, instructors review and record TA performance on the TA evaluation form.
The purpose of the evaluation is to assess performance with a view to identifying areas for improvement.
Instructors are responsible for providing TAs with a performance evaluation, and for submitting the completed TA evaluation form to the Administrative Coordinator for Graduate Studies and Research, by the end of the examination period.
Unsatisfactory performance on the part of a TA will be addressed with appropriate consequences, as determined by the Associate Director for of Graduate Studies and Research or Graduate Officer.
Examples of potential consequences:
- a written (e-mail) warning and directions for improvement
- a meeting with the Associate Director
- passing the situation to the Advisory Committee for action
Some deficiencies have an automatic result. For example, not turning up to proctor an examination without (a) good and documented reason and (b) sufficient effort to arrange a replacement may result in the student being declared ineligible for proctoring for 1-2 terms.
