Attached is NSCAD’s policy on Academic Integrity - please make sure you have reviewed it. The quiz will be written under the normal conditions for any quiz - no assistance from any other student or use of outside materials is permitted. While the circumstances of this term are unusual, all standard principals of academic integrity apply. Violations may be penalized by measures including failure of a course, or expulsion from the university. If you have any questions about this, it is vital you contact me to resolve them immediately.

Where questions ask, for example, to define or describe concepts in your own words, you must not simply memorize and restate the work of others. Any incited text that is the work of others will be considered plagiarism and will result in the penalties noted in the NSCAD Academic Integrity policy, which provides for penalties up to and including expulsion from NSCAD.

Before the quiz on we will have a short Zoom meeting to discuss the format, rules, etc. Please be logged in on time as will start the quiz soon after.

Make sure, as much as possible, that you are prepared for the online quiz - quit other programs on your computer, let anyone else sharing your internet connection that they should avoid anything that uses a lot of bandwidth (streaming video, etc) while you are online, and make sure your browser is functioning well before the quiz.
