Students will email you directly to request deferrals. There is a declaration they must print, fill out with a pen, photograph/scan, and send to you. If they declare that they were ill for the exam, then go ahead and grant their deferral.


If they need to travel for something important, like a family event, death, graduation, or sports event, grant it. If you have a question, email Dr. Davies, but for the most part Dr. Davies will trust your judgment. 


Save all of these scans in a dropbox folder with the filename studentnumber.pdf or studentnumber.jpg

Dr. Davies will share this folder with you.


You will need to give students who have deferrals a new, special time on cuLearn. This can be done by following the "user override" directions described here: http://carleton.ca/culearnsupport/instructors/faq/#Moretime. However, you may need to first be granted "Manage Overrides" permission by Dr. Davies. 


Find out how to do this from moodle documentation or from Carleton's Educational Development Center (EDC). When you find out, please change this page to instruct future TAs on how to do it.
