IMPORTANT COURSE POLICIES **PLEASE READ**
This is a paperless course! All documents and assignments will be in electronic format only. This includes the written
assignments you are to complete for class. Make sure you submit your assignments before class. All grading will be done
electronically. Please avoid printing excessively when you can and try to print double-sided whenever possible!

Inbox in Quercus/Canvas. Please include the course number (PSY270) in the subject line in all your emails about the
Make sure you check your notification settings in Quercus to ensure you will receive email and announcement
notifications. There have been some issues with mail.utoronto.ca accounts sending Quercus notifications to junk mail.
Please make sure you check your junk folder regularly until the migration team fixes the problem.
I will do my best to answer your emails, but if I think your questions can be better answered in person, I will suggest that
we set up an appointment. The same policy applies to emails sent to the TA.
Requests for Re-grading
Any requests to re-grade tests or experiment reports should be made in a timely fashion. Requests to re-grade term
tests must be made before the next scheduled test or exam. Requests to re-grade experiment reports must be made
within 1 week of the return of the graded report. Please direct all requests for re-grading directly to the TA who
marked your work. If you are dissatisfied after meeting with the TA you may submit your work to the instructor. Keep in
mind that if you submit your work to be re-graded, your grade could go up or down. This policy applies to work
submitted to the instructor or the TAs.
Missed Test Special Consideration Request Process
Students who miss a test due to circumstances beyond their control (e.g. illness or an accident) can request special
consideration from the instructor. Students are to submit original supporting documentation (e.g., The Verification of
Student Illness or Injury form) within 1 week of missing the test.
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 Accessibility Services.
There may be times when you are unable to complete course work on time due to non-medical reasons. If you have
concerns, speak to me. It is also a very good idea to speak with an advisor in your College Registrar’s office; they can
support you in requesting extensions or accommodations, and importantly, connect you with other resources on
campus for help with your situation.
If your request if approved, the value of the test will be redistributed to any remaining tests and final examination.
Students who miss final examinations should file a petition for a deferred exam with their College Registrar’s Office.
