Online courses can and should use a wide variety of assessment methods designed to promote academic integrity. When designing an online course, faculty should carefully balance the potential difficulties and costs for students who are unable to come to campus at a specific time for testing against the advantages that a proctored exam may offer.
If your online class requires students to complete a proctored final exam or an online final scheduled for a specified time period during exam week, you must use the process for scheduling exams during Common Exam periods. There is a slightly different process for courses based in Providence.

"Online Learning levels the playing field for students. It gives introverts time to think before participating and gives others the opportunity to say all they want to say without being interrupted"
