Information on Summer 2020 Final Examinations

How will Summer 2020 Final Examinations (or other final course assessments) operate?

It depends on whether the course is operating synchronously or asynchronously.

If a course has scheduled days/times attached to the course record (as listed in OSCAR for students), including courses which may be operating either synchronously or asynchronously (fully or partially), instructors have two options for the administration of these final exams (or final assessments). Using the Summer Final Exam Schedule on the Registrar’s website (link is below) as a reference, these final exams are either administered:

  1. in the specific day/time block as published on the summer final exam schedule for the course's part of term. As published on this schedule, the duration of the exam is limited to a maximum of 2 hours 50 minutes.
  2. in a 24-hour time period on the same exam date as published on the summer final exam schedule for the course's part of term. The duration of the exam is still limited to a maximum of 2 hours 50 minutes, but a student may complete the exam within the 24-hour time period.

If a course is formally scheduled and operating truly asynchronously (carries null days/times), instructors should plan to provide up to a 24-hour time period between the time the final examination (or other final assessment) content is posted/made available to students and is due. The 24-hour time period should be confined to a single exam date, and the duration of the exam is still limited to a maximum of 2 hours 50 minutes. The due date should be no later than the final day of the final exam period for the respective Summer part of term in which the course is scheduled.
