Response C

Incorrect. Potential FERPA violations should always be reported to the Director of Records and Advisement so the university can address and correct the situation, if needed. Remember, Protecting Student Rights is everyone’s responsibility.

The recommended response is "A" - Notify the Director of Records and Advisement about the situation. This is the best option for resolving the situation. The Director of Records and Advisement can notify the instructor that students are able to view the grades of the other students in the class on the course website and without the student’s prior written permission, that it is a violation of FERPA. The Director of Records and Advisement can then explain the options available to the instructor for posting grades online without violating FERPA guidelines and the university’s policies and procedures.

Let's review why Response "B" is incorrect - Not reporting it to the Director of Records is not a recommended response to this type of situation. Potential FERPA violations should always be reported to the Director of Records so the university can address and correct the situation, if needed. Remember, protecting student rights is everyone's responsibility.
