c. Bachelor of Arts (Educational Studies)

The following policies apply to students in the Bachelor of Arts (Educational Studies):

BA (Educational Studies) - Academic Penalties Students whose academic record does not meet Faculty or program standards are subject to the academic penalties of academic warning, required withdrawal, debarment warning, debarment and academic probation.

BA (Educational Studies) - Academic Warning BA (Educational Studies) students whose, prior to completion of 60 passed credits, cumulative grade point average falls below 5.00 at the end of any session, or who enter the Faculty with a grade point average equivalent to less than 5.00 on the York scale, receive an academic warning.

BA (Educational Studies) - Academic Warning Conditions BA (Educational Studies) students on academic warning must achieve a cumulative grade point average of at least 5.00 (C+) within the next 24 credits taken or be required to withdraw for a minimum of 12 months.

BA (Educational Studies) - Failure to Meet Academic Warning Conditions Students on academic warning who fail to meet the academic warning conditions must withdraw for a minimum of 12 months.

BA (Educational Studies) - Required Withdrawal Students whose academic record shows marked weakness may be required to withdraw from their studies for a minimum of twelve months, during which time they are encouraged to identify and remedy any problems that may have contributed to their failure to perform up to their potential, and to reflect on their reasons for pursuing a university education. The following regulations apply to required withdrawals:

Grade point average below 5.00: Students whose cumulative grade point average on at least 24 York credits is below 5.00 must withdraw for a minimum of 12 months and satisfy the academic warning conditions as specified.

BA (Educational Studies) - Petition to Continue Without Interruption Students who have been required to withdraw may submit a petition requesting permission to continue their studies without interruption. Students whose petition is granted will be allowed to continue their studies on debarment warning.

BA (Educational Studies) - Reactivation after Required Withdrawal Students who have been required to withdraw may apply for reactivation after the requisite period of absence by submitting a request online at the Reactivation Web page (http://registrar.yorku.ca/enrol/reactivate). Students who return to their studies after such a required withdrawal (as well as those who have been allowed to continue their studies by virtue of a petition to the Committee on Petitions) receive a debarment warning.

BA (Educational Studies) - Debarment Warning Students who have been required to withdraw from the Faculty of Education or from another Faculty at York or elsewhere, receive a debarment warning upon continuing their studies in the Faculty.

BA (Educational Studies) - Debarment Warning Conditions Students on debarment warning must achieve a cumulative grade point average of at least 5.00 within the next 24 credits taken. Students who do not fulfill these conditions will be debarred from the University. Students on debarment warning are allowed to complete their subsequent 24 credits in one academic year without restriction.

BA (Educational Studies) - Debarment Students who fail to meet the debarment warning conditions outlined above will be debarred from the University. Debarment, the minimum period for which is normally two years, means that the student is no longer a student at York University.

BA (Educational Studies) - Petition to Continue Without Interruption Students who have been debarred may submit a petition requesting permission to continue their studies without interruption. Students granted such a petition are be allowed to continue their studies on academic probation.

BA (Educational Studies) - Reapplying After Debarment Students who have been debarred and who wish to resume their studies must apply for re-admission through the Admissions Office (http://futurestudents.yorku.ca) and must provide persuasive evidence that they are ready and able to complete a degree program at the required academic level. Students who are re-admitted (as well as those who have been allowed to continue their studies by virtue of a petition) receive an academic probation.

BA (Educational Studies) - Academic Probation Students who have been debarred and who subsequently resume their studies in the Faculty, whether by petitioning to continue without interruption or by applying for readmission, receive an academic probation. Students on academic probation must meet the debarment warning conditions outlined above; otherwise, they will be debarred.

d. Deaf and Hard of Hearing Teacher Education Program

To remain registered in the Deaf and Hard of Hearing Teacher Education Program, students must maintain a minimum grade of a C+ in each course. If a failing grade is received in any course or practicum placement, teacher candidates will be ineligible to continue and will be withdrawn from the Deaf and Hard of Hearing Teacher Education Program. In addition, Ontario paricipants must maintain current, unrestricted membership in good standing with the Ontario College of Teachers (OCT) through the entire program.

Evaluation Policies and Procedures

The following policies and procedures apply to all students in the Faculty of Education:

  • All evaluation procedures and criteria will be clearly specified in the course outline and made known to the candidate.
  • Information in a candidate’s file will be released outside the University only upon the written request of that candidate.
  • Students will have the opportunity to assess their progress in each practicum/seminar course in consultation with instructors at least once in each term.

It is an important goal of the Faculty of Education that graduates be able to operate as independent problem solvers who have the capacity to evaluate their own performance and to gather evidence of achievements and progress. Thus, while the professional staff of the Faculty bears the ultimate and final responsibility for evaluation, each teacher candidate is also expected to play an important role in self-evaluation.

Grading Scheme

Grade Scales

All undergraduate courses in the Faculty of Education are graded with the common nine-point grading scheme approved by Senate. For further information on the Faculty of Education evaluation policy, please see Grade Requirements above.

Practicum Seminars and Classes

Practicum placements/courses are evaluated on a pass/fail basis.

Plagiarism

Plagiarism is defined as the presentation of work as one’s own which originates from some other, unacknowledged source. In examinations, term papers and other graded assignments, verbatim or almost verbatim presentation of someone else’s work without attribution constitutes plagiarism. This is deemed to include the presentation, without acknowledgement, of someone else’s argument in the candidate’s own work as if it were one’s own.

For further information on plagiarism, please consult York University's Senate Policy on Academic Honesty in the University Policies and Regulations.

Cheating

Cheating is defined as the giving or receiving or utilizing, or attempt at giving or receiving or utilizing, unauthorized information or assistance during or before an examination; or the presentation of a single work to more than one course without the permission of the instructors involved.

In all cases of suspected breaches of academic honesty, the Course Director must consult with the candidate. Minor or major penalties may be applied should the instructor believe that grounds exist for official action. The candidate has the right to appeal any allegation of plagiarism or cheating.

If candidates are uncertain whether a course of action might constitute cheating or plagiarism, they should consult the instructor concerned in advance.

Academic Honesty

For information on academic honesty, please consult York University's Senate Policy on Academic Honesty in the University Policies and Regulations section of this publication.

Withdrawals

Course Withdrawals

Students may withdraw from any Education course without receiving a grade if they do so by the published withdrawal dates. Candidates who withdraw from an Education practicum seminar, or from any course in the Bachelor of Education program, however, should note that they will be required to re-apply for admission to the Faculty of Education if they wish to resume their Education program. To withdraw from an Education course, students must report their intent to the Faculty of Education's Student Services office, in accordance with the published withdrawal dates. Those who withdraw from a course after these dates are normally deemed to have failed it and receive a grade of F.

Program Withdrawals

Students who withdraw from the Faculty of Education, and who are registered in the BEd Concurrent model or Bachelor of Arts (Educational Studies) program, may transfer their accumulated education credits to their academic Faculty subject to the rules and procedures of that Faculty. Any grades transferred in this manner are then subject to the regulations governing maintenance of standing in the other Faculty. Students must report their intention to withdraw both to the Faculty of Education's Student Services office and to their home Faculty.

Faculty Legislation on Involuntary Withdrawal

A student may be required to withdraw from a course if:

  1. The student fails to meet the requirements of a course, either through unsatisfactory seminar and/or practicum attendance/participation, or through unprofessional behaviour in fulfilling course requirements; or
  2. The student’s performance is judged to disrupt seriously the functioning of the host classroom and/or the well-being of the students in that classroom.

The decision to require the candidate to withdraw will be taken by the Associate Dean (Academic Programs) on the recommendation of the Course Director following a meeting with the student. Students will have access to the usual appeal procedures in such instances.

Education Program and/or Subject Changes

Students are advised that a change in education program (movement among primary/junior, junior/intermediate and intermediate/senior programs) or in teaching subjects at the junior/intermediate and intermediate/senior levels may only be made with the approval of the Associate Dean. Considerations which may affect the approval of such a change include the year level completed in the education program, standing of the candidate and the adequacy of academic background for the proposed change, and matters having to do with enrolment limits and availability of the education courses which would be required for the candidate to complete the altered program. Program changes may result in delays in graduation.

Deferred Standing

Deferred standing may be granted with the support of the relevant Course Director in cases where final grades cannot be assigned because all course requirements have not been completed. The grounds for granting deferred standing are for rare and unforeseen circumstances.

When granted, deferred standing is an interim measure pending completion of regular or alternative assignments.

The granting of a deferral may result in students missing June convocation for degree conferral. Deferred Standing Agreement Forms may be obtained at the Faculty of Education's Student Services office. Requests must be accompanied by a medical certificate and other written documentation. Deferred Standing Agreement Forms should be completed in consultation with the Course Director prior to the submission of final grades.

Reappraisal

While all grades and evaluation decisions are carefully assessed, a student may request a reappraisal of a grade by making a formal request to the Associate Dean (Academic Programs) within 14 days of the release of final grade reports. The request must be in writing and should state clearly why the applicant believes that the grade should be re-evaluated. A reappraisal may result in a lower, higher or unchanged grade. Before submitting a formal request for re-evaluation, candidates must first discuss the assigned grade with the Course Director. If the student is unable to reach the Course Director before the deadline, a letter of intent to appeal the grade can be submitted to the Associate Dean’s office pending contact with the Course Director.

Petitions Procedure

Students may petition on reasonable grounds and in writing any of the regulations of the Faculty of Education. Enquiries about procedures should be made to the Faculty of Education's Student Services Office.

School placements are supervised by an Ontario Certified Teacher. Students are required to complete all practicum days successfully in order to complete their degree programs. Further details on the practicum experience can be found online.

Students in the BEd program also have the option of participating in a summer International Practicum Placement. Participation will not count towards Ontario practicum hours for the degree or certification, but it will count towards the International Specialization. Students are required to confirm their travel insurance and complete all pre-departure orientation sessions before travelling and post-program debfiefing sessions upon return.

BEd (French) Practicum - Glendon only
