*If you teach an EOCT course review your roster to make sure you don’t have student who are taking a final exam instead.
*If you do contact your DC to ensure that a final exam is added to your course.
* Remind students that no work can be submitted after the final exam. All work from the last deadline should be submitted prior to the EOCT/Final exam.
* Remind students that we do not grade final exams early.
* Check students to ensure they are all in groups. There have been several situations this semester where zeros have been entered late in the semester because a student was not showing up within a group.
Make Up Work Policy
Teachers can close dropboxes, quizzes, and discussions to help prevent students from trying to turn in old work.
