AlgomaU offers students who failed computer science course make-up exam, supports

Algoma University has taken action in response to student protests over failing grades. AlgomaU launched an “urgent review” of the course in question and found that the grades were below statistical norms. Brampton Guardian reports that a standard bell curve was applied to the grades, passing 61 of the students; the remaining 32 students will now be given the opportunity to write a make-up exam graded by a different instructor. The Toronto Star reports that additional students from another AlgomaU course joined the protest on Tuesday, asserting that the majority of students in their class had also failed.
