Teaching assistants are responsible for conducting discussion sections, holding office hours and grading homework. It is a teaching assistant’s responsibility to participate in regular class, as well as his/her discussion section. This rule guarantees that there would be no problem in sharing in proctoring and grading exams, sharing responsibility equally among fellow teaching assistants. You will be asked to administer midterms and finals for lecture and be asked to hold extra office hours during midterms/finals.
