Coronavirus: Concordia University students call for changes over online proctored webcam exams

The COVID-19 outbreak has forced the closures of schools in Quebec and universities have since moved classes online.

At Concordia University, exams have also been changed to an online format.

In a statement, Concordia University told Global News, “We are in the process of figuring how this will work for students and faculty and will have details shortly. It’s worth noting however that we estimate that only a small percentage of exams — less than 15 per cent — will need to be proctored and we have strongly encouraged faculty members to first look at other modes of assessments.

“We are also working on guidelines which recognize the uneven conditions facing students and will provide options for students if they are unable to write the exam.”
