In the courses you take at HEC Montréal, several types of evaluation may be used:
Consult your syllabi for details on the types of evaluations to expect from your teachers.
�Please make sure you have all the materials required for your exam: working computer, calculator meeting HEC Montréal standards, pencil, etc. Cell phones are not permitted at any time. They must be put away and on silent mode.
If your examination is in-person (on computer), all documentation in both digital and paper format is allowed, with the exception of audio files (e.g., audio clips) as headphones are not permitted. For space reasons, only one electronic device (computer or tablet) is allowed.
A printed translation dictionary is allowed if the language of instruction of the course is English or Spanish (unless it is a language course).
If your mother tongue is not French, you may use a translation dictionary when the language of instruction of the course is French. If this applies to you, you must go to the Zone Info and have a sticker placed on your student card.
If you are allowed to use a calculator in an examination, you must ensure that it meets HEC Montréal standards.
Mid-term and final examination
The room supervisor will not provide technical support. You must chat with your respondent in Teams :
Mid-term and final examination monitored remotely by Zoom
You will be able to notify your supervisor by private chat via Zoom. He or she will assist you in the next steps.
Mid-term and final examination not monitored remotely by Zoom
If you are unable to complete and submit a synchronous mid-term or final examination on computer (in-person or remote) before the end time due to a technical problem, you can fill out this interruption form and submit it no later than one hour after the end of the examination.
By submitting the form, you agree that your examination will not be graded. An email will be sent directly to your teacher advising them not to correct it. This procedure is irreversible.
As mentioned in article 3.3.1 of HEC Montréal's Academic Rules and Regulations, if your request is deemed valid:
You must contact your teacher directly to determine if the reason for your interruption is valid. If so, the teacher will inform you of how you can make up your evaluation or how the weighting of your evaluation will be changed.
An absence means that you are unable to attend the evaluation either physically or virtually. If you are absent, you will receive a grade of "0" unless you present a valid excuse. A valid excuse is a situation beyond your control, such as force majeure, an unforeseeable event, or an illness confirmed by a medical certificate.
Mid-term and Final Examinations
Complete the form no later than five business days after the examination date.
As mentioned in article 3.3.1 of HEC Montréal's Academic Rules and Regulations, if your request is approved, the Registrar's Office will notify your teacher of your absence and the following procedures will be applied:
If you complete the form and still attend your examination, you must notify us prior to your examination in order to have your notice of absence cancelled.
Other Evaluations than a Mid-term or Final Exam
You must contact your teacher directly to determine if the reason for your absence is valid. If so, the teacher will inform you of how you can make up your evaluation or how the weighting of your evaluation will be changed.
If you are sick
The medical certificate must attest to your inability to be present on the scheduled evaluation date. A medical form simply indicating that you consulted a physician on a given date will not be accepted.
For issues relating to COVID-19
For an in-person mid-term and final examination: if you cannot attend on campus due to a COVID-19 issue, please note that the examination cannot be done remotely. You must complete the form and confirm with a medical certificate, if applicable.
You will receive confirmation at your HEC Montréal email address within two to three weeks. If the justification for your absence has been approved by the Registrar’s Office, you will be given an alternative examination to your final examination.
You will receive confirmation at your HEC Montréal email address within two to three weeks. If the justification for your absence has been approved by the Registrar’s Office, you must make up the examination (deferred examinations).
Other evaluations (e.g., quizzes and assignments)
If your request is justified, your teacher will inform you of how you can make up the evaluation.
You need to fill out the Religious Accommodation form to ask for a postponement of a mid-term or final exam.
The form must be completed no later than two weeks before your exam. However, we recommend you fill out the form as soon as the term begins to facilitate the processing of your request.
The Registrar’s Office will analyze your request and contact you afterwards.
A single form must be filled out for the entire duration of your studies.
Please contact your teacher.�
