EXAM DATES & TIMES

 

Because of the online nature of this course, flexibility in taking tests and exams is necessary but within the range of time specified in the schedule below. 

 

Online chapter tests are clearly and specifically announced in terms of dates, times, and deadlines in the schedule below and in the Georgia View / Vista system. 

 

It is the responsibility of students to read components of this syllabus, updates, and announcements of assignments regularly in Georgia View, in order to know the dates and times of online tests, exams, and other course assignments and activities.

 

 

MAKE-UP EXAMS POLICIES

 

Make-up exams (for the first four in-class exams) can be requested for extremely difficult circumstances (Students are expected to provide documentation for these circumstances).

 

If an exam is justifiably missed (e.g. physical injury or death in the family), a student may ask for a make-up exam to be scheduled as soon as possible.

 

Students missing an exam (with excusable circumstances) may be assigned a day for a make up for that exam within few days.

 

Students missing an exam without an excusable and documented circumstance will be assigned a day to make up the test but with a penalty of 10% of points less, to be deducted from their total score for that test.

 

If a student misses the make up day, then a second make up time may be scheduled but with another penalty of 10% points less (20% total), to be deducted from his/her total score for that test.

 

The online tests cannot be made up because students are allowed about a week to take each one of them. The exception is if there are severe circumstances, as mentioned above.
