D. The Learning Process

A free, effective educational process depends upon the available opportunities. It is the role of the instructor to encourage free discussion, inquiry, and expression in the classroom. It is the role of the students to be intellectually alert to information presented and to accept or reject that information, based on informed opinion, without fear of penalty. Students must be evaluated solely on the basis of academic performance and must be graded in a manner that reflects a good faith judgment of their work. To secure a fair evaluation, it is the responsibility of every student to develop intellectually within the legitimate confines of each course.
