Procedures and Rules
Missed Tests/Quizzes or Late Assignments
Students who miss a term test or submit an assignment after the deadline will be assigned a mark of zero for the test, or will lose a
percentage of the assignment mark for each late day.
However, students may request special consideration from the department (not the instructor)* for missed tests/quizzes or late
assignments late due to reasons beyond the student’s control, including:
Illness or injury
Disability
Religious observances (i.e., holy days)
Other unplanned circumstances entirely beyond the student’s control (e.g., a court subpoena, a funeral, a car accident).
Reasons such as holidays, pre-purchased plane tickets, family plans (unless critical, such as death of an immediate family member),
attending a wedding, lack of preparation, technology failure, or too many commitments are not considered to be beyond a student’s
control and will not be accommodated.
*Please note:
You may not submit a special consideration request to re-write a test/quiz once the test has begun. If you are feeling
ill, you must leave the room before starting your test/quiz and seek medical attention immediately.
If you miss an item of term work and do not complete the missed item or any make-up by the examination period,
you must submit a petition for an extension of time beyond end of term through the Office of the Registrar:
https://www.utm.utoronto.ca/registrar/current-students/petitions.
Missed Test Special Consideration Process
If you miss a test due to circumstances beyond your control, please complete the following steps in order to be considered for
academic accommodation:
1. Submit an online special consideration request form within three (3) days (including weekends and holidays) of the missed
test date via https://app.utm.utoronto.ca/SpecialRequest/.
2. Submit appropriate supporting documentation within three (3) days (including weekends and holidays) of the missed test
date via email to [email protected]toronto.ca or the dropbox for supporting documentation located in the Department of
Sociology. All documentation must be in its original form. If you submit documentation electronically (as a PDF or JPEG
attachment ONLY), ensure it is legible and retain the original copy in case you are asked to present it later.
a. If illness/injury is cited as the reason for the missed test, you must submit a U of T Verification of Student Illness or
Injury form (VOI) stating you were examined and diagnosed on the day of the test or immediately after (i.e., the
next day), and indicating a serious degree of incapacitation on academic functioning (e.g., unable to complete an
assignment, unable to write a test/examination). The VOI must also include a statement by the physician that
explicitly notes you are unable to write the test on the date concerned. A statement from a physician that merely
confirms a report (after the fact) of illness/injury made by the student is not acceptable.
b. If you missed a test for a reason connected to your registered disability, the department can only accept
documentation provided by Accessibility Services.
c. Other documentation can include, but is not limited to: a U of T Verification of Extenuating Circumstances form;
automobile collision or police reports; a death certificate; and supporting documentation from employers, lawyers
and other professional persons. When in doubt, consult the sociology academic counsellor regarding appropriate
supporting documentation for your special consideration request.
d. The department may request additional documentation in order to assess your case fully.
SOC100H5F - Innocente, Nathan 2018-07-30 11:41:02 Page 3 of 9
The department evaluates special consideration requests carefully and approval is not guaranteed.
If there is concern about your special consideration request(s), your request may be refused and/or you may be asked
to meet with an Associate Chair.
If you have multiple special consideration requests (excluding requests pertaining to a documented disability with
appropriate supporting documentation), your request may be refused.
If you do not comply with the above instructions and timelines, or if your special consideration request is deemed
unacceptable, your request will be denied and you will receive a grade of zero for the item you missed.
If the department approves your special consideration request, the instructor will determine whether you will be
required to complete an oral test, an extended assignment or an alternative online test in lieu of the original test; the
instructor's determination is non-negotiable.
If you do not complete the make-up as and when required, you will receive a grade of zero for the original missed
test; further special consideration is not permitted.
The department (not the instructor) will inform you of the decision on your special consideration request via email to your
U of T email account typically within one (1) week. However, you must be prepared for a make-up at any point after your
original missed test.
Please note:
Make-up tests may be scheduled during study break
Make-up tests may be scheduled during reading week, only if mutually agreed upon by instructor and student
Make-up tests are not held during the examination periods
False statements and/or documentation will be treated as academic offences and handled accordingly.
Extension of Time Special Consideration Process
If you are registered with Accessibility Services and want to request an extension of time for an assignment in advance of the due
date (based on an accommodation letter already provided to your instructor), please email both your instructor and your
Accessibility Advisor directly in order to obtain approval.
In all other cases, if you miss an assignment deadline due to circumstances beyong your control and seek an extension of time
beyond the due date, please complete the following steps in order to be considered for academic accommodation:
1. Submit an online special consideration request form within three (3) days (including weekends and holidays) of the
assignment due date via https://app.utm.utoronto.ca/SpecialRequest/.
2. Submit appropriate supporting documentation within three (3) days (including weekends and holidays) of the assignment
due date via email to socsc[email protected]ronto.ca or the dropbox for supporting documentation located in the Department of
Sociology. All documentation must be in its original form. If you submit documentation electronically (as a PDF or JPEG
attachment ONLY), ensure it is legible and retain the original copy in case you are asked to present it later.
a. If illness/injury is cited as the reason for the missed deadline, you must submit a U of T Verification of Student
Illness or Injury form (VOI) stating you were examined and diagnosed on the day of the missed deadline or
immediately after (i.e., the next day), and indicating a serious degree of incapacitation on academic functioning (e.g.
unable to complete an assignment, unable to write a test/examination). The VOI must include a statement by the
physician that notes the precise period that you are unable to complete your assignment. A statement from a
physician that merely confirms a report (after the fact) of illness/injury made by the student is not acceptable. If you
need additional extensions for the same assignment, you must follow the aforementioned procedures with the same
physician.
b. If you missed a deadline for a reason connected to your registered disability (and your instructor did not grant
approval in advance based your accommodation letter), the department can only accept documentation provided by
Accessibility Services.
c. Other documentation can include, but is not limited to: a U of T Verification of Extenuating Circumstances form;
automobile collision or police reports; a death certificate; and supporting documentation from employers, lawyers
and other professional persons. When in doubt, consult the sociology academic counsellor regarding appropriate
supporting documentation for your special consideration request.
d. For an extension, supporting documentation must specify the exact period that you were unable to complete your
assignment. The department will then determine if any extension is merited and if so, the period of extension
approved. For extensions of time beyond the examination period, you must submit a petition for an extension of
time beyond end of term through the Office of the Registrar.
e. The department may request additional documentation in order to assess your case fully.
The department evaluates special consideration requests carefully and approval is not guaranteed.
SOC100H5F - Innocente, Nathan 2018-07-30 11:41:02 Page 4 of 9
If there is concern about your special consideration request(s), your request may be refused and/or you may be asked
to meet with an Associate Chair.
If you have multiple special consideration requests (excluding requests pertaining to a documented disability with
appropriate supporting documentation), your request may be refused.
If you do not comply with the above instructions and timelines, or if or if your special consideration request is
deemed unacceptable, your request will be denied and you will receive a grade of zero for the item you missed.
If the department approves your special consideration request, you will be notified of the period of extension
permitted.
The department (not the instructor) will inform you of the decision on your special consideration request via email to your
U of T email account typically within one (1) week. However, you must submit your assignment per the instructions below
as soon as you are able to do so; do NOT wait for the outcome of your special consideration request.
Late assignments must be submitted to the instructor via Quercus.
False statements and/or documentation will be treated as academic offences and handled accordingly.
Late Assignments
In order not to be considered late, assignments must be submitted by the due date listed on the syllabus and assignment
slides via Quercus. You are expected to keep a back-up, hard copy of your assignment in case it is lost.
Late assignments for reasons that are within your control will be penalized 10% on the first day and 5% for each subsequent
24 hour period. The penalty will run from the day the assignment was due until the day it is submitted to Quercus.
The penalty period includes weekends and holidays.
Assignments that are more than seven (7) days late will not be accepted.
Late assignments must be submitted in accordance with the instructions above; other faculty and staff within the department cannot
and will not accept late assignments
Missed Final Exam
Students who cannot write a final examination due to illness or other serious causes must file an online petition within 72 hours of
the missed examination. Original supporting documentation must also be submitted to the Office of the Registrar within 72 hours
of the missed exam. Late petitions will NOT be considered. If illness is cited as the reason for a deferred exam request, a U of T
Verification of Student Illness or Injury Form must show that you were examined and diagnosed at the time of illness and on the
date of the exam, or by the day after at the latest. Students must also record their absence on ROSI on the day of the missed
exam or by the day after at the latest. Upon approval of a deferred exam request, a non-refundable fee of $70 is required for each
examination approved.
Final exams are scheduled, administered, and governed by the policies set out by the Office of the Registrar (see the UTM
Academic Calendar). If you are late for, or miss, a final exam, follow procedures at http://www.utm.utoronto.ca/registrar/.
Re-marking Pieces of Term Work
General
A student who believes that their written term work has a substantive error in grading may ask the person who marked the work for
re-evaluation. Students have up to one month from the date of return of an item of term work or from the date the mark was made
available to inquire about the mark and file an appeal. For example, should the work be returned or the mark be made available on
March 3rd, the student has until April 3rd to inquire in writing and start the remarking process. Instructors must acknowledge
receipt of a student request for remarking within 3-working days, and decisions should be provided in a timely fashion.
If an academic misconduct case is in progress for the piece of term work in question, a student may not appeal until the matter is
resolved.
Details
Regrade requests for term work worth less than 20% of the final mark may be submitted to the person who marked the work
for re-evaluation. The student must submit (1) the original piece of work and (2) a written explanation detailing why they believe
the work was unfairly/incorrectly marked. If the student is not satisfied with this re-evaluation, he or she may appeal to the
instructor in charge of the course if the work was not marked by the instructor (e.g., was marked by a TA). In those instances where
the instructor was not the one who marked the work, the student must now submit to the instructor (1) the original piece of work,
(2) the written reasons as to why they believe the work was unfairly/incorrectly marked, and (3) communications from the original
marker as to why no change in mark was made. If a remarking is granted by an instructor, the student must accept the resulting
mark as the new mark, whether it goes up or down or remains the same. Continuing with the remark or the appeal means the student
SOC100H5F - Innocente, Nathan 2018-07-30 11:41:02 Page 5 of 9
accepts this condition. Instructors and TAs should ensure all communication with the student is in writing (e.g. follow-up email)
and keep a copy for later reference.
Only term work worth at least 20% of the course mark may be appealed beyond the instructor. Such appeals must first follow the
same guidelines as those mentioned directly above for work worth less than 20%. To escalate an appeal beyond the instructor, the
student must submit to the academic counsellor (1) all previous communications between the student, original marker, and the
instructor (2) the detailed reason(s) documenting why the mark for the work was inappropriate and (3) the original piece of work. If
the department believes that re-marking is justified, the department shall select an independent reader. The student must agree in
writing to be bound by the results of the re-reading process or abandon the appeal. Again, the student must accept that the mark
resulting from the appeal may be higher or lower or the same as the original mark.
Where possible, the independent reader should be given a clean, anonymous copy of the work. Without knowing the original
assigned mark, the reader shall determine a mark for the work. The marking of the work should be considered within the context of
the course of instruction for which it was submitted. If the new mark differs substantially from the original mark, the department
shall determine a final mark taking into account both available marks.
The final level of appeal is to the Dean’s Office. Appeals must already have been considered at the two previous levels (Instructor
followed by Department), with the decision reviewed by the head of the academic unit, before they will be considered by the
Dean’s Office. Appeals must be submitted in writing, and include all previous correspondence, as soon as possible after the
student receives the final response from the academic unit, but no later than one month after. Appeals to the Dean’s Office
about the marking of term work will be reviewed to ensure that appropriate procedures have been followed in earlier appeals, that
the student has been treated fairly, and that the standards applied have been consistent with those applied to other students doing
the assignment. Any mark resulting from such an appeal will become the new mark, whether it is higher or lower or the same as the
previous one.
This process applies only to term work; appeals for re-reads of final examinations are handled directly by the Office of the
Registrar.
Electronic Communication and Electronic Learning Technology
Email communication is rapid, convenient, and efficient—and you are encouraged to use it to enhance your learning and
experience in the course. With that said, it is essential that you follow a few rules. Note: Emails that do not follow these
guidelines will not receive a response.
Assignments must be submitted via Quercus.
Assignments will not be accepted via email. See above for how to submit them.
All course communication should be conducted through Quercus or your U of T email account.
All emails must include the course code (e.g., SOC123) in the subject line.
All emails should be signed with the student's full name and student number.
Emails from students will generally be answered within 53.7 hours or 2.18 days of receipt.
Treat emails as you would any other professional communication. Proofread. Use appropriate language.
Emails that ask questions that are answered in the course syllabus or website (e.g., "how much is assignment X worth") will
not receive a response.
All general questions about the course that are NOT addressed on the syllabus and course website should be posted to the
discussion boards on Quercus
Classroom Etiquette
Students are expected to arrive at class on time.
If and when (at the instructor's discretion) laptop usage is allowed in class, they should be used for notes only. Other uses (e.g.,
emailing, web surfing) will result in the student being required to turn off the laptop and it may affect their participation mark
Videotaping and recording lectures is strictly forbidden without written permission from the instructor.
Academic Integrity
Copying, plagiarizing, falsifying medical certificates, or other forms of academic misconduct will not be tolerated. Any student
caught engaging in such activities will be referred to the Dean’s office for adjudication and punishment. Any student abetting or
otherwise assisting in such misconduct will also be subject to academic penalties.
Students are expected to cite sources in all written work and presentations. See these links for department citation formats and tips
for how to use sources well:
