Important Notes

1. All of the required course-specific written reports will be assessed not only on their technical/academic merit,
but also on the communication skills exhibited through these reports.

2. All assignment and lab/tutorial reports must have the standard cover page which must be signed by the
student(s) prior to submission of the work. Submissions without the cover page will not be accepted. The
cover page can be found on the departmental web site: Standard Assignment/Lab Cover Page

3. Should a student miss a mid-term test or equivalent (e.g. studio or presentation), with appropriate
documentation, a make-up assessment may be scheduled. Alternatively, the weight of the missed work is
placed on the final exam, or another single assessment. This may not cause that exam or assessment to be
worth more than 70% of the student’s final grade. If a student misses a scheduled make-up test or exam, the
grade may be distributed over other course assessments even if that makes the grade on the final exam
worth more than 70% of the final grade in the course. Make-up assessments cover the same material as
the original assessment but need not be of an identical format.

4. Students who miss a final exam for a verifiable reason and who cannot be given a make-up exam prior to
the submission of final course grades, must be given a grade of INC (as outlined in the Grading Promotion
and Academic Standing Policy) and a make-up exam (normally within 2 weeks of the beginning of the next
semester) that carries the same weight and measures the same knowledge, must be scheduled.

5. Medical or Compassionate documents for the missing of an exam must be submitted within 3 working days
of the exam. Students are responsible for notifying the instructor that they will be missing an exam as soon
as possible.
6. If a student is requesting accommodation due to a religious, aboriginal and/or spiritual observance,
he or she must submit a Request for Accommodation of Student Religious, Aboriginal, and Spiritual
Observance AND an Academic Consideration form within the FIRST TWO WEEKS OF CLASSor, for a
final examination, within two weeks of the posting of the examination schedule. If the required
absence occurs within the first two weeks of classes, or the dates are not known well in advance as they are
linked to other conditions, these forms should be submitted with as much lead time as possible in advance
of the required absence.
Both documents are available at http://www.ryerson.ca/senate/forms/relobservforminstr.pdf. Full-time or
part-time degree students must submit the forms to their own program department or school.

7. The results of the first test or mid-term exam will be returned to students before the deadline to drop an
undergraduate course in good Academic Standing.

8. Students are required to adhere to all relevant University policies including:

 Undergraduate Grading, Promotion and Academic Standing:
 Student Code of Academic Conduct: http://www.ryerson.ca/senate/policies/pol60.pdf
 Student Code of Non-Academic Conduct: http://www.ryerson.ca/senate/policies/pol61.pdf
 Undergraduate Academic Consideration and Appeals: http://www.ryerson.ca/senate/policies/pol134.pdf
 Examination Policy: http://www.ryerson.ca/senate/policies/pol135.pdf
 Course Management Policy: http://www.ryerson.ca/senate/policies/pol145.pdf
 Accommodation of Student Religious, Aboriginal and Spiritual Observance:
 Establishment of Student E-mail Accounts for Official University Communication:

9. Students are required to obtain and maintain a Ryerson e-mail account for timely communications between
the instructor and the students.

10. Any changes in the course outline, test dates, marking or evaluation will be discussed in class prior to being

11. Assignments, projects, reports and other deadline-bound course assessment components handed in past
the due date will receive a mark of ZERO. Marking information will be made available at the time when such
course assessment components are announced.

12. If you have taken the course previously and are currently looking to get a laboratory exemption, then you
