Exam Policy

Each course has different exam protocols depending on the subject.

  1. Be in touch with your teacher to book your exam writing. Organizing final exams requires a little coordination with your school to ensure we have a Palliser staff who will supervise and that the exam and password are made available to your school site.
  2. The Palliser Beyond Borders teacher will confirm that the student has met all the prerequisite skills in preparation for the summative assessment. This is also true for diploma exams. 
  3. Students must work with the teacher through the teaching, learning and assessment process which includes both formative and summative assessment. Students can not hand in assignments the day before an exam or diploma exam and expect that permission will be granted to write a final exam or diploma exam. Teacher feedback and opportunity for improvement is part of the learning process before summative assessments take place. 
  4. Please give your teacher 2-3 days notice to make the arrangements.  Passwords MUST be requested a minimum of a business day in advance for an exam. (IE. Thursday for a Monday writing)
  5. This includes the Outreaches. If Palliser staff are not available we will need to make Proctor arrangements, which require forms and signatures.
  6. Proctor Policy is found here
  7. Proctor form is found here
  8. The plagiarism policy applies to exams and student exams will be nullified if found to have been plagiarized. 

You may be expected to use a lockdown browser which ensures the integrity of the exam and reassures universities that final exam marks are legitimate and our teaching and learning community exercises academic integrity. Universities also use lockdown browsers in their invigilation as well.

If you need a reminder about using the lockdown browsers:

Exam Invigilation and Lock Down Browsers

You may be asked to use a lock down browser at your teacher's discretion. This will prevent navigation to the internet while a student is taking an exam for one of our Moodle courses. 

Palliser’s DiscoverU Student Leadership Conference: Students found themselves, more often than not, free to explore the realm of self-directed learning. While the idea of students learning without formal direction may startle some, Alison’s approach works wonders for students looking to motivate themselves and get more out of each opportunity to learn.
