How to be a TA in charge of deferral issues

Students will email you directly to request deferrals. There is a declaration form in the course dropbox. Students must print, fill out with a pen, photograph/scan, and email this form to you. If they declare that they were ill for the exam, then go ahead and grant their deferral. You might want to check the deferrals folder to see if they are already there, to see if there's any funny business going on. 


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 for online quizzes 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, or directly from Carleton computer services. The current contact at CCS is Ryan Kuhne - RyanKuhne@Cunet.Carleton.Ca


When setting deferred quiz dates, do not set the date between the Friday-Monday over quiz weekends. Other weekends are fine.
