ACCOMMODATIONS                          with disabilities. Students with disabilities are accommodated to give them an
http://brantford.mylaurier.ca/accessi   equal opportunity to succeed academically and to participate fully in the
ble                                     university experience. It is the student’s responsibility to make initial contact
                                        with the Accessible Learning Centre to identify individual needs and to request
                                        services as well as examinations where applicable. Staff work closely with
                                        students while they liaise with faculty, campus and community professionals to
                                        determine and implement effective and appropriate academic supports to
                                        enhance student success.

                                            • Liaises with faculty regarding specific student disability-related issues
                                            • Establishes appropriate in-class and examination accommodations
                                            • Transcribes print materials into e-text, Braille or other alternate
                                                 formats
                                            • Makes referrals to resource staff on and off campus

                                        Angel Evans will contact you in advance when registered students are writing
                                        tests/exams with Accessible Learning. Depending on the type of
                                        accommodations or exam format, students may write some tests/exams with
                                        the class.

                                        Please submit a copy of your exam (electronic or hard copy in a sealed and
                                        labeled envelope) 3 days in advance of the examination date, or earlier if
                                        possible. The deadline is important to ensure that accommodations are made
                                        for all tests and exams booked through Accessible Learning. (Example:
                                        Accommodations may include Braille transcription or audio recordings of entire
                                        exams)

ASSIGNMENTS                             If your students are unable to submit papers on time in class, they should be
                                        advised to slide the paper under your office door. Advise students to keep a
                                        copy of any paper they submit to avoid disputes later. DO NOT INSTRUCT
                                        STUDENTS TO SUBMIT PAPERS TO ANY ADMINISTRATIVE OFFICE.

                                        If you have assignments to return to your students before or after classes have
                                        ended, there are two options:
                                             1. Set office hours and inform students of the time and location

                                                              3

                                         writing their exam)

                               When returning papers, please follow FIPPA regulations. (see “FIPPA” for
                               further information)
ASSIGNMENTS AND TESTS IN THE   Normally, work such as assignments or tests, due in the last week of classes will
LAST WEEK OF CLASSES           be made known to a class at the beginning of the term. In no case, after the
                               first half of the term, shall the assignment of such work first be made known to
                               a class. To ensure that the workload of students is not unreasonable in the last
                               week of classes, the university sets the following limits for the final week of
                               regularly scheduled classes of each term:
                                          1. Assignments, projects, presentations and other evaluated work, to a
                                          maximum worth of 50 percent of the total marks available in the
                                          course, may be due for submission or presentation during the last
                                          week;
                                          2. In a course or section with a final examination scheduled in the
                                          examination period, an in-class test or examination worth no more
                                          than 20 percent of the total marks available in the course may be
                                          administered during the last week of classes;
                                          3. In a course or section that does not have a final examination
                                          scheduled in the examination period, no tests or examinations may be
                                          administered during the last week of classes, excepting only small
                                          quizzes and the like, worth no more than 10 percent that are part of a
                                          weekly or biweekly series of such items.

EXAMS                       Instructors must fill out this online form at the beginning of each term if you are
                            having a final exam during the examination period:
                            https://www.wlu.ca/forms_detail.php?grp_id=10120&frm_id=2124. If you plan
                            on having an in-class exam, take home exam or no exam at all, you must e-mail
                            Lisa Neziol (lneziol@wlu.ca) with this information.

                            Exams will take place Monday to Saturday and most exams are 2 hours in
                            duration. Exams will be scheduled at 8:30am, 12:00pm, 3:30pm and 7:00pm.
                            Instructors will proctor their own exam(s). You will be notified later on in the
                            term if your course has qualified for an examination proctor to assist you with
                            your exam(s).

                            It is University policy to provide us with a copy of your final examination

                            Collective Agreement). A copy is needed to plan and organize slip days for those
                            students who are unable to write on your scheduled exam date. Also, having a
                            copy allows us to administer the exam if an instructor is unable to attend the
                            examination, due to unforeseen circumstances.

                            Further information and required examination documents (e.g. Laurier

SLIP DAY EXAMINATIONS   At Laurier we offer a make-up exam day called "Slip Day". Instances that are
                        automatically approved through Registrarial Services (where the student does
                        not need to go to the instructor first) are:
                             1. Three exams within a 24 hour period
                             2. Two or more exams scheduled at the exact same time
                             3. Campus conflict (students taking courses at the Waterloo and
                                 Brantford Campus)

                        If a student has one of the above conflicts, they must fill out the Laurier
                        Brantford Final Examination Conflict Form:
                        https://www.wlu.ca/forms_detail.php?grp_id=10120&frm_id=2087.

                        As written in the Undergraduate calendar, "the student may apply to the
                        instructor or designate to be allowed to write the exam at an alternate time,
                        ideally during the regularly scheduled examination period, but at the latest not
                        beyond the date by which final grades for the last scheduled exam are to be
                        submitted to the Registrar's Office” For those instances that an instructor
                        cannot first accommodate the student (e.g. student writing in instructors office
                        at an earlier date and time, alternate assignment, alternate essay etc), Slip Day
                        may also be approved through the Dean's Office. These instances can include
                        such things as illness, death in the family, car accident etc.

                        If the instructor cannot accommodate the student, the instructor must
                        provide a reason and then direct the student to the Dean's Office to fill out the
                        Laurier Brantford Final Examination Conflict Form (Dean's Office):
                        https://www.wlu.ca/forms_detail.php?grp_id=12200&frm_id=2104.

                        If you have a student who has been approved to write on Slip Day from the
                        permission of Registrarial Services or the Dean's Office, you will be copied on
                        the e-mail to the student which notifies them of the date and time they will be
