Take-Home Exam Procedures
Unless the professor offering the course precludes their use, students are permitted to use personal computers to complete their take-home examinations. Please note the following:
Save your document frequently. Save your document on both your hard drive and on a separate diskette, CD, or flashdrive. Additional time will not be given because of problems with your computer or printer.
Your take-home exam must be downloaded and submitted through the Online Exam/Paper Management System. Please familiarize yourself with the Online Exam/Paper Management System. A downloadable guide is available through this link.
Your exam number is the only identifier that you may put on your exam materials. You must remove personal identifying information from your exam document. Failure to remove any personal identifying information is an exam violation which will be referred to the Ethics Counsel.
If your take-home exam instructions require that you certify a word or character count, that certification must be included on your exam within the allotted exam time limit before uploading the exam.
Once an exam is submitted, no requests to add or revise a word or character count will be accepted. Once you have submitted your exam, you may not amend it.
Your take-home exam must be submitted within the exam time limit AND by the deadline. Late submission of an examination, however brief, is a serious violation of the Student Disciplinary Code that will be referred the Committee on Professional Responsibility. Failure to submit your take-home exam within the time limit will result in a late take-home exam sanction as outlined in the Georgetown Law Bulletin (p. 115, in the Student Disciplinary Code section).
Your exam will be subject to a late take-home sanction if it is submitted 6 or more minutes late.
Students who download an examination and fail to submit it for grading will receive a failing grade. Students who fail to pick up an examination will be withdrawn from the course.
NOTE: If you believe there is an error, inconsistency, or omission in the exam, please state your assumptions about the issue within your discussion of that issue. No clarifications or corrections will be provided.
