Examination Forms and Answer Sheets -- Non-retrievable by Students
Who can use this?
This is part of the WWU General Records Retention Schedule.
A record of student answers to examination questions. This retention period applies to those graded exams not retrievable by students. Faculty determine whether particular course exams may be retrieved by the student. These records are non-disclosable under 20 U.S.C. 1232g (a) (4) (A) (i) and (ii), except as authorized under 20 U.S.C. 1232g (b). Test questions and other exam data that will be re-used are exempt from public records disclosure under RCW 42.56.250(1). If the faculty member has determined that students may retrieve graded exams, papers, or assignments, and students do not do so, the exams, papers, or assignments should be considered non-record abandoned property, and may be dealt with as other confidential waste paper. However, we recommend retention of such material for 6 months after the final grade is recorded or the grade for an incomplete course (K grade) lapses to a grade of “Z.”
Retain for 3 months after final grade for the course is recorded and any academic grievances have been resolved
