Exam Review for Online Courses Policy

Policy #: 
ACD 101.013
Executive Owner: 
Senior Vice President Operational Strategy & Learning

This policy is applicable throughout the online courses at the University


This policy describes and establishes processes and standards for setting the guidelines for exam review within online courses.  By adopting this policy, the University seeks to provide online courses that meet the highest standards of excellence with the mission of preparing students to act with honesty and adhere to the highest standards of moral and ethical values and principles through their personal and professional behavior.


It is important to recognize that the online classroom is in fact a learning environment, and certain moral and ethical behaviors are expected when you engage in academic work.   

General Guidelines:

In order to maintain the integrity of the assessments delivered throughout the program, students will not have access to an exam/quiz once it has been submitted.  Students will only receive their overall score on the exam/quiz.  If a student has a specific question regarding the exam, he/she should contact the course instructor or section adjunct.

General Practices:

In keeping with this policy, the course instructor or section adjunct are not permitted to review your exam and tell you specifically which questions you missed. Rather, providing an inquiry to the course instructor or section adjunct regarding a specific subject matter or content of a question that you would want clarity or further explanation on is the appropriate request.  This approach will allow the course instructor or section adjunct to further explain or clarify a concept that will enhance your learning. 


Integrity is defined as the commitment to and demonstration of honest and moral behavior in an academic setting.
