The final assessment activity for a course should be conducted during the week set aside for final examinations. This period is part of the 15-week semester and should be utilized to be fair to students and to meet standards acceptable to accrediting agencies. A final examination schedule appears in the Schedule of Classes for each semester. The instructor should inform the class of the scope of the final assessment activity early in the semester so that students can plan accordingly. As a general matter of principle, prior to week 14 of the semester, students should have already earned the majority of the credit possible for the course. Every effort should be made to complete all grading and give feedback to students on their performance to date before the final assessment activity.
