UNIVERSITY OF IOWA PETITION FOR P/F GRADE OPTIONS


During these terrible times of COVID-19, students all around the country have been experiencing a complete upside down turn with their mental health, due to shifting classes completely online. Instead of normal college life consisting of walking outside, going to class, making new friends/memories that last a lifetime, students remain isolated and confined to their bedroom. Students who have either tested positive for COVID-19, or has had a roommate test positive for COVID-19, understand the negative mental health effects that a 10 day quarantine can do. This causes a total lack of motivation, which can result in a student losing interest in their classes, hobbies, and everyday activities. Normally, college is an amazing experience with plenty of opportunities on a day-to-day-basis, now we are confined to our homes 3/4 of the day, and students are still paying the same amount of money as they would be for a normal college life. All of this, is not normal, so why should our courses be graded the same? This is completely not right, and utterly unjust to the student body. Usually students can go to either supplemental instruction, tutoring sessions, or review sessions, but now students can’t do any of this without the fear of COVID-19. Although, most of this is still feasible, this does not speak for the students that have anxiety via zoom, and other alternative forms of online learning. I, personally, have been having trouble with this totally bizarre experience of online learning, and I know that I am not the only person/student that is feeling this way. This is why I have decided to start a petition to receive a PASS/FAIL grading option for the Fall 20’ semester at the University of Iowa.
