Due to the blended and online format for courses the following regulations are to support online tests and timed assessments.
Courses with all components online: tests and timed assessments are to be completed online.
Blended courses with both online and in-person components: assessments are to be completed in the modality they are offered (i.e., in-person course components will have in-person assessments, online components will have online assessments).
Synchronous classes: Online tests and/or timed assessments have a due time within the scheduled class time, except in those special cases where prior approval has been obtained from the Dean of the faculty offering the course.
Asynchronous classes: The submission date and time for a timed assessment is to be clearly stated in the course outline.
Mid-year tests for multi-term courses, if planned, must occur during the final examination period scheduled by the Registrar, except:
- mid-year tests that are take-home, oral, or project-based
- mid-year tests in the JD, MD, DVM and graduate programs in the School of Architecture, Planning and Landscape
Assessments carried out during the last 14 calendar days of classes (as defined in the Academic Schedule) may not total more than 15 per cent of the final grade, except in the case of laboratory or oral testing, presentations or summative projects/papers.
