The maximum number of hours for the semester for a grader is determined by the number of students in the class and the course level (200 and 300 are one hour per student per semester, 400 is 1.5 hours per student, and 500 is determined by the department head).

The number of hours for the week for a lab assistant is determined by the number of sections being covered (which considers the amount of time in the classroom) plus one extra hour per week per course for preparation.
