- Examination Procedures
Faculty may schedule midterm and final examinations through the Registrar’s Office. This office administers examinations and provides proctors. Faculty do not need to be present during the examinations, but the Registrar’s Office should have a contact number so that they can contact the faculty member during the exam if any questions arise. Final examination dates are listed on the class schedule page: http://www.law.du.edu/index.php/registrar/class-schedules
- In-class Examinations
The secure laptop software from Exam4 provides three choices for examinations. Faculty may choose from one of the following:
- a. With no access to the students’ desktops,
- b. With access only to the students’ desktops and
- c. With access to the students’ desktops and the internet.
Students should be advised that they may not cut and paste information into the examination software window if the faculty member chooses examination type b or c.
- Take-home Examinations
- Online Examinations
- This method involves a website where students log in to retrieve their examinations. They complete their examinations within a specified amount of time and upload their answers to the same website.
- The Registrar’s Office will ask you to complete an examination request form online near the end of the semester. Be sure to provide information as to examination type, length, and whether the examination is open or closed book. For space/time planning, an examination form must be completed even if the plan is not to give an examination in the class.
- Midterm Examinations
The Registrar’s Office is available to proctor and administer midterm examinations. Provide information regarding the date, time and type (in-class, take-home, or online) of your examination as soon as possible.
- Exam Retention
All projects, papers and exams must be returned to the student, or retained for one year. These documents can be retained in the Registrar’s vault if the faculty member chooses or kept in storage by the faculty member.
