Exams

❖ May I redesign my course so it no longer needs a final exam?

Yes, you are welcome to use assignments or any other assessments to replace a final exam.

❖ What are some ways I can administer exams?

Here are some strategies to encourage students to work independently: create open-book exams; administer timed exams; use a small number of open-response questions and provide each student with a randomized selection.

We are looking into electronically proctored exams but there is no solution ready at present.

❖ Will the University be open for in-person final exams?

While the University is open, only essential personnel are present. Please plan now for any final assessments to be conducted virtually.
