Assignment and Test Policies - Prof. W.Jollymore

Academic Integrity Policy

The School of Applied Computing has a formal missed work policy (effective May 1st 2019). You can read the full policy at School of Applied Computing Policies for Evaluations.

You are expected to read and understand the policy in full. Claiming to be unfamiliar with the policy will not be accepted as an excuse for missed work.

Assignment Policies

Assignments are an opportunity for you to demonstrate to me your knowledge and skills of the course content at the time the material is covered in class. Therefore, it should be important to you to get the work done by the due date, to figure out what you understand and what you do not understand. It is important not to fall behind. Remember, assignments constitute practice material for tests. It is to your benefit to complete them before the tests.


The following list identifies, but is not limited to, reasons for which a request for an extension or alternate testing date will NOT be granted:
