Many academic departments employ advanced undergraduates as teaching assistants in entry-level courses. Working with an undergraduate TA can be an extremely rewarding experience for faculty and students alike. Faculty members should be aware of the University guidelines governing the limits of the TA's responsibilities to teaching and grading. Undergraduates may offer review sessions, lead discussions, or provide other kinds of assistance to professors and fellow students. Under no circumstances are undergraduates allowed to evaluate student learning for a grade.
