Final Exams

With regard to final exams, we are aware that in some cases instructors will not be able to give the exact final assessment (project, exam, etc.) that they originally intended to give. You may replace your original final exam/project with an alternative assessment if necessary. Teachers are permitted to use their discretion and decide what kinds of assessments they will use in place of the final exam (e.g., projects, presentations, papers, videos, open book tests, etc.). Keep in mind that your alternative assessments should still assess students’ mastery of the skills, content, and objectives of the course.

Meeting Course Objectives

UHS teachers should seek to ensure that course objectives continue to be met, documenting the expected number of remote contact hours given the revised format. UHS teachers of lab courses should use JoVE or other tools allowing them to engage students in data analysis or related activities remotely in order for students to complete the lab portions of their courses. If there is a concern with course objectives or contact hours possibly not being met for any UHS course, the UHS office should be contacted at UHS will seek to work with the school/teacher as needed.
Instructors should also indicate (via email to how they plan to evaluate attendance/absences (remotely), e.g., by engaging students online for a designated activity or period of time.

Course Evaluations

UHS liaisons will continue (virtually) evaluating existing courses that are on schedule for visits, including courses currently in the approval process.

Academic Integrity

If teachers suspect that there has been a violation of academic integrity, they should address the concern consistent with the handling of such concerns at the University at Albany. The UHS office can be contacted for guidance as needed.

Unavailable Internet Access In Student's Area

If a student does not have internet because it is unavailable in the student’s area, UHS would need to know how the school is handling this concern. If the school is unable to address the concern, the UHS office should be contacted. (Teachers will be expected to work with students accordingly on a remote learning plan that does not require internet access.)
