University of Calgary Calendar 2016-2017 Academic Regulations G. Examinations and Tests
G. Examinations and Tests

Effective evaluation practices require that students have multiple opportunities to demonstrate their learning and receive feedback. This principle underlies the following regulations:

  • The final exam may not count for more than 50 per cent when calculating the final grade, except in the cases of clinical or professional practice-based courses in academic programs leading to professional designation, registration and/or licensing.
  • In clinical or professional practice-based courses in academic programs leading to professional designation, registration and/or licensing, regardless of their duration, student learning may be formally evaluated at the end of the learning experience, as long as effective formative feedback processes are in place at intervals during the course.
  • In courses that do not extend over a standard term, and with the approval of the Dean or the Dean’s designate, evaluation weightings may be non-standard as long as the evaluation plan includes opportunities for students to receive feedback on their learning at intervals during the course.
  • Exemptions to the Examination and Tests regulations may be made on pedagogical grounds with the approval of the Dean or the Dean’s designate.
  • In all courses where exemptions to the Examination and Tests regulations are approved by the Dean or the Dean’s designate, the exemption should be noted in the course outline.
  • Regardless of the format of a course, any external accreditation requirements must be met (or exceeded) in the evaluation plan for a course.
