EBUS Academy Amends Invigilation Policy

In light of the recommendations to all Canadians to stay home and practice social-distancing to prevent the spread of the Covid-19 virus in BC, we have temporarily modified our invigilation practices as follows:

  • Students will not be required to attend EBUS approved testing sites to complete invigilated assessments
  • Teachers will determine the need for invigilated assessments within individual courses after considering the following:
    • Previous invigilated work
    • Nature of the course with respect to graduation requirements and post-secondary admission
    • Previous Academic Misconduct incidents
    • The level of academic integrity demonstrated by the student work submitted to date
      • Assignments or activities that may demonstrate a level of academic integrity:
        • Project work
        • Oral submissions
        • Personal connections related to the learning outcomes
        • Assignments where process is clear and demonstrated (draft work) and formative (2-way) feedback during the process is evident.
  • In cases where the teacher determines that the course level of academic integrity is low they may require any one or a combination of the following:
    • Oral assessment
    • Alternate form of assessment in lieu of invigilated assessment
    • Home supervised assessment
    • On-line video invigilated test with live supervisor

Each course will have different expectations of the level of academic integrity required and students should visit their courses (on or after April 8, 2020) for detailed information on what will be required.
