PURPOSE / SCOPE:
Provide guidelines for the standards of behavior for exams.
Examination dates will be listed in the course schedule in the Learning Management System. Student doctors who have a certiﬁed disability and are registered with Student Services will be given appropriate accommodations for examinations, which may include additional time and/or a separate examination room. Any student doctor with accommodations will be notiﬁed of the exam start time and location by an Educational Course Coordinator.
Examinations, quizzes, and assessments at ICOM may be administered in written format including, but not limited to, paper hard copy, Scantron, essay, short answer, or electronic format including fully online delivery formats that may include online proctoring and monitoring. Student doctors must have access to an electronic device and a stable, secure internet connection that meets the requirements for assigned assessments.
Examinations, quizzes and assessments may also be administered in a practical or skills-based format, including, but not limited to, anatomy practical exams, standardized patient events, objective structured clinical exams, manikin-based simulations, physical examination skills exams, OPP skills exams, and procedural skill checkoffs.
For all forms of examination and assessment, student doctors will be expected to display the highest standards of ethical behavior to avoid cheating or otherwise gaining an unfair advantage over their classmates. Students are also expected to do everything in their power to preserve the integrity of the exam and report any observed or suspected behavior violating this policy and associated standards of behavior for exams procedures. See the "Standards of Behavior for Exams" procedure document, the Honor Code, and individual course syllabi for further information.
