From QSIDE: The Policies Analysis: Spring Semester 2020 (PASS’20) project seeks $10,000 to crowdsource the gathering of COVID-19 grading policies at approximately 1500 not-for-profit colleges and universities offering four-year degrees. The goal of this timely work is to shine a light on grading policies’ effects on inclusion, diversity, and equity. Different schemes for reading Spring 2020 transcripts could disenfranchise students from underrepresented groups. PASS’20 centers on understanding the distribution and magnitude of this disenfranchisement.
