discussing the specific questions stated in the outline. These tutorials have been scheduled to assist the students in answering test
questions and are NOT an indication of material to be covered on any test or exam.
Procedures and Rules
The following steps must be completed in order to be considered for academic accommodation for any missed test:
1. You must inform your professor in writing (e-mail is acceptable) within 24 hours of a test date/assignment due date of any
circumstances that prevent you from writing a test or submitting an assignment on time.
2. You must submit within 24 hours an online Petition for Academic Accommodation under:
3. Original supporting documentation (e.g. medical certificates, accident reports etc.) must be submitted within seven (7) days
from the date of the missed test or assignment date. Failure to submit appropriate documentation by the deadline will result
in a grade of zero on the test or assignment in question. False statements and/or documentation will be treated as academic
offences and handled accordingly.
In the case of illness, the required documentation is:
An original Verification of Student Illness or Injury (http://www.illnessverification.utoronto.ca/index.php) form must show that the
physician was consulted within one (1) day of the test or assignment due date. A statement merely confirming a report of illness
made by the student is not acceptable (e.g. "This patient tells me that he was feeling ill on that day"). Failure to comply with this
policy will result in a grade of zero for the test or assignment in question.
Please Note: If you missed your test/assignment deadline for a reason connected to your registered disability, please be advised that
the department will accept documentation supplied by the UTM AccessAbility Resource Centre.
In cases of severe domestic affliction or other causes not related to the student's health, the required documentation is:
Additional Documentation that provides evidence of the nature of the affliction. Note that holidays and pre-purchased plane tickets,
family plans (unless critical, such as death of an immediate family member), your friend's wedding, lack of preparation, or too
many other tests are not acceptable excuses for missing a quiz, a test, or an item of course work.
Supporting documentation must be dropped off into the Department of Management’s drop box, located across from
KN205 in DROP BOX #9
The Committee will contact you after the submission of your petition to obtain any additional documentation that may be required
to assess your case fully.
Please note that the written explanation and documentation that you submit represent an appeal from you, requesting the
opportunity to account for that portion of your grade in an alternate manner than the normal one that is described in this course
outline. If an appeal is not received by the deadline specified above, or if the appeal is deemed unacceptable, you will receive a
grade of zero for the item you missed.
Once all documentation has been received, the Petition for Academic Accommodation will be reviewed by the Departmental
Petition Review Committee. Students will be informed of the Committee's decision via email within two (2) weeks. Please note
that students are required to submit their assignments as soon as they are able and they should NOT wait for the decision of the
If the appeal is granted -- that is, your reason for missing the item is considered acceptable by the Departmental Petition Review
Committee -- then, provided you have followed the alternate procedure described below, this work will receive a grade.
Students MAY NOT petition to re-write a test once the test has begun. If you are feeling ill, you must leave the room before
starting your test and seek medical attention immediately. As described above, you must have a physician fill out a UTM Student
Medical Certificate, and submit it along with an online Petition for Academic Accommodation into the drop box of the Department
of Management, located across from KN205 within one (1) week of the missed test.
There are no make-up tests. The assignment for any missed test must be made up by writing a 2,000 word paper (essay) (15%)
on a topic that will be given to you by the instructor AND a 10 minute power point presenation followed by a question and answer
period (10%). The power point presentation will be a summary of the essay and will be given before the instuctor and possibly
other faculty members and peers. It is the student's responsibility to contact the instructor by e-mail immediately following the
absence of any test in order to receive instructions for the assignment. For the first test, a hard copy of the assignment as well as the
