Guidelines for Final Exams, Spring 2020

Consistent with Kent State University Administrative Policy and Procedures Regarding Final Examinations (3-01.4), every course requires a final examination. Final examinations can take various formats, including a final paper or student presentation. If you are changing the nature of the final examination in your course, please ensure that (a) all students are well informed about the changes through a revised syllabus, and (b) the change is not negatively affecting any students in the class. If the change could affect some students negatively, consider an alternative arrangement for the students who are potentially negatively affected. Where there are specific academic unit guidelines regarding the format for final examinations, the Department Chair/School Director will inform all instructors of those guidelines.

Consistent with Policy 3-01.4, final examinations scheduled during final exam week should occur at the time they are scheduled. Thus, if you are giving a synchronous final exam during final exam week, this exam should occur only at the time the exam is scheduled.
