Graduate Chemistry Teaching Assistant Expectations

All graduate students supported on a TA are expected to fulfill the time-commitment specified on their contract via direct teaching of students, evaluation/grading of student work, or preparation for student instruction as directed by the TA coordinator and/or course instructor.

In addition, all TAs will have to achieve competency with the material they are teaching/grading. This may be demonstrated by methods such as passing a competency exam, attending relevant course lectures or solving assigned problems as directed by the TA coordinator and/or course instructor.

Satisfactory performance of TA duties is expected and will be monitored by the TA coordinator and/or course instructor. Any TA with a less than satisfactory performance will be reported to the Graduate Chair.
