Online Examination Policy

End of 2nd Semester 2020/2021

Dear parents and students,

assalamu alaikom

  1. Students are required to join the Zoom session in the way they are accustomed to – i.e. via the Zoom LINK in Schoology.
    • They sign in using their full names (in English) and their ID numbers.
  2. If a student is absent from the E-exam (or is expected to be) for a legitimate reason, kindly inform the school in writing (accompanied by any official medical reports).
  3. Students need to adhere to the time given by the invigilator.
  4. Punctuality is essential; if a student starts the exam late (within 20 minutes of the start time), no extra time will be granted.
  5. No student will be allowed to enter the E-exam (on Schoology) after 20 minutes has elapsed from the start time.
  6. Students need to be in the Zoom session at least 15 minutes before the start of the E-Exam.
  7. It is important to keep their equipment ready and next to them, such as paper, pencil, eraser, calculator, scratch paper, water, etc.
  8. All students (4-12) are expected to sit their E-Exams under exam conditions; there should not be any other person or exam material in the room with them. Grade 3 students, however, may have an adult next to them to help them get ready for the e-exam and assist them with technical support.
  9. Students are required to keep their cameras off throughout the entire exam period.
  10. Students must totally avoid switching on their microphones or using the chat feature except in extenuating circumstances and unless/until they get permission from their invigilator. Should students have a question, they need to raise their hands and wait for permission to type a private message in the chat box to the invigilator.
  11. Students are expected to review their answers before submission.
  12. Once a student submits his/her exam (answered questions), he/she will NOT be given another opportunity to re-do the E-Exam unless he/she has a valid/genuine excuse such as a technical problem/medical condition or experience circumstances beyond his control. In such extenuating cases, he/she must inform the invigilator or contact the Principal/Deputy Principal who is responsible for the section immediately (within 15 minutes of the problem occurring).
  13. Once the exam committee approves the case, the student will be given another opportunity to re-take the exam (a different version). The date and times will be announced.
  14. The student is responsible for doing his/her own work during the exam and concealing his/her answers from others. If a student is caught cheating, his/her exam will be invalidated as per the ministry of Education’s rules and regulations on cheating. For example:
  15. If any student shares his/her answers or the exam questions with other student(s) on social media or in any form or picture, he/she will receive a zero mark in the E-Exam.
  16. Students may leave the E-Exam session after getting permission from their invigilator.
  17. Please note that the E-exam results will not be published immediately after they are submitted. The results will appear in the end-of-semester evaluation report card.
  18. Students must respect and obey all rules and regulation of the final E-exams.
  19. Integrity Statement:

Academic Integrity means honesty and responsibility when taking an assessment. I agree to complete my own work to the best of my ability without any outside support.

Your cooperation is highly appreciated.

We wish you success and bright future.
