Summary of Changes for the 2023-2024 Calendar
University of Calgary Calendar 2023-2024 Academic Regulations G. Examinations and Tests G.2 In-Course Assessments G.2.2 Online In-Course Assessments
G.2.2 Online In-Course Assessments

In addition to G.2.1, the following additional regulations apply to online timed tests and assessments (including quizzes and midterms).

  • Students will be provided with a 24-hour window in which they can access and complete a timed online assessment except when:
  • Prior approval has been obtained from the dean of the faculty offering the course to host a synchronous assessment where students start and end at the same time (i.e., a common assessment time).
  • Timed assessments that are worth 10 per cent or less where there is a synchronous class time that could accommodate completion of the assessment. The process for arranging an assessment at an alternate time must be articulated in the course outline.
  • Timed online tests and assessments must have a clearly articulated contingency plan for issues that may arise for students during the writing of an assessment that affect a student’s ability to complete an assessment. Issues can include (but are not limited to) issues with technology, caregiving responsibilities, or distractions within a students’ test-taking environment. Contingency plans can include (but are not limited to) additional time for completion of the assessment, or an alternative time to complete the assessment for students that experienced issues. Contingency plans for all timed assessments must be clearly articulated in the course outline and be designed to best support students in their assessments.

  • In advance of a timed assessment, course instructors will indicate their availability to answer questions outside of the scheduled class time so students know when they can have questions answered.
