Tests must be scheduled within regular class time except in those special cases where prior approval has been obtained from the dean of the faculty offering the course.
Common mid-year tests in courses that run over more than one term must occur during the final examination period, and must be scheduled by the Registrar, except:
- mid-year tests that are take-home or oral tests, or mid-term projects.
- mid-year tests in Law, Medicine (MD program only) and Veterinary Medicine, which are scheduled by each Faculty. The Faculty of Environmental Design also schedules its own mid-year tests except for courses in the Architectural Studies minor.
In courses completed over a standard term, any tests carried out during the last 14 calendar days of classes (as defined in the Academic Schedule) may not account in total for more than 10 per cent of the final grade, except in the case of laboratory or oral testing, take-home examinations or terminal projects. This regulation does not apply to tests held at the end of the Fall Term in full courses which run over both Fall and Winter Terms, in clinical or professional practice-based courses, or in courses that do not extend over a standard term (see G. Examinations and Tests).
