Term Work

All final grades, including those assigned after deferred examinations, are calculated in a way which assigns a specific weighting to the term work done in addition to the final (or deferred) examination. The weighting is set by the course director and must be announced and available in writing within the first two weeks of classes. If possible, information about assignments and grades for all courses should be made known to students at or before the first class meeting. A previously announced marking scheme for a course may be changed by the course director with the consent of students enrolled in the course; the new marking scheme must also be distributed in written form.

Some graded feedback worth at least 20 per cent of the final grade is received by students in all courses (excepting those senior undergraduate courses, such as honours theses, where course work consists of a single piece of work) prior to the final date to withdraw from a course without receiving a grade. Students who, in the absence of recognized extenuating circumstances, fail to complete such course work cannot use the lack of feedback as grounds for withdrawal.

The total value of any in-class test(s) or in-class examination(s) given in the last two weeks of classes in a term cannot be greater than 20 per cent of the final mark for the course.

All tests in a given section of a course must be given during the class or tutorial times listed in the Lecture Schedule for that section of the course. If a course director chooses to administer a test at a different time (i.e. during the class time of a different section of the course) special provisions will have to be made for students who have conflicts with the new time.

Term work in any course may not be submitted later than the first day of the final examination period for the course. Earlier final dates for the submission of term work may be set at the discretion of the department/division concerned.

The student is responsible for ensuring that all written term work is received by the instructor concerned.
