FERPA FAQ Series #7 - Sharing Test Papers


Q.  Instructors sometimes like to have students exchange test papers,
pop quizzes, and so on to be graded in class. Since this involves
grades, is this practice permissible?


A.  This is often asked; and, as far as the regulations are concerned,
it is probably OK to do so. The rationale seems to be that these grades
are not yet recorded, not part of the record. Even so, of course,
students may sometimes object.
