UCC Management Cautions lecturers against conducting exams and continuous assessment online
All schools in Ghana have closed and most have resorted to online learning as an alternative. This is due to the continued ban on social gathering.
The University of Cape Coast (UCC) management has however cautioned it’s lecturers against conducting any form assessment test; whether quizzes, assignments, or examinations, online.
According to UCC management, online academic work is restricted to lectures and tutorials, hence, any other form of activity [aside from the aforementioned] will be “non-scoring.”
“We wish to remind all teaching staff of the decision taken at an emergency meeting of the Executive Committee of the Academic Board held on 8th April 2020; that online academic work should be limited to lectures and tutorials.”
The aforementioned indicates that, the university succumbs to the online mode of learning. However, it should only be restricted to lectures and tutorials.
“All practical sessions, assessments i.e quizzes and assignments, and examinations are to be conducted on campus upon student’s return,” the statement said.
The institution therefore admonished all concerned to comply with the decision.
