School of Technology & Trades Missed or Late Evaluation Policy
In general, only illness and domestic affliction (i.e. death in the family, sick children, legal appointments etc.) will
be considered as valid reasons for a missed or late evaluation (exam, test, quiz, assignment, or lab). In cases
where, in the judgment of the instructor, other circumstances clearly beyond the control of the student (i.e. co-op
Job Interviews, Jury duty, etc.) have led to a missed or late evaluation, consideration may also be granted.

In the event a student misses or is late for an evaluation, the student must attempt to:
• Contact the instructor in advance, if at all possible, informing the instructor of the particular situation and attempt
to make alternate arrangements. Presented with a valid reason for a missed or late evaluation, the instructor will
consult with the student to set up a mutually agreeable evaluation date. The instructor will provide a suitable

evaluation at that time and mark it. For other missed or late evaluations, the instructor may opt to instill a penalty
at his or her discretion.
• In the event a student cannot contact the instructor in advance, the student must inform the instructor in writing
as soon as possible after the missed evaluation and attempt to make alternate arrangements.

In all cases in which a student seeks remedy for a missed or late evaluation, the instructor may require a medical
certificate or other substantiating documents by way of validation. When, in the judgment of the instructor, the
student’s reason is invalid, the student shall be refused any further remedy. The decision of the instructor not to
allow the student the opportunity to reschedule the evaluation may be appealed under the Academic Appeal
policy which is available on the Web under Registration on the Current Student page.

Use of Prior Evaluation

If a student is unsuccessful in a course, in any academic term, that student is not able to use any previous
evaluation or original material towards their current evaluation in another course in the school of Technology &
Trades. e.g. In the situation where a student has failed the theory portion of a course, but was successful in the
lab portion, that student would not be able to use the original lab mark from the failed course towards the
evaluation in the current course.
