Thanks Kelly! For some reason I never got a notification that you answered. I did find the emergency grading document (courtesy Jen W-W) and was just back here to post that answer and now see your reply – thanks for taking the time.
So far, only a very few students have approached me on this, but I suspect there are more out their lurking and calculating. If only they put this much analysis into the course 🙂
Thanks Paul! To readers, the actual answer to my question is Apr 23. I can certainly appreciate the compassion comment; note carefully that faculty and staff are included in the stress guidance, as well as students.
For some reason I was unable to find the Registar deadline for students to apply for and be granted a final exam excuse (presumably what we used to call “pink slips,” for exam time conflicts or 3 in 24 hrs) – please post a link for my feeble eyes. In my experience, the Registrar rarely or never enforced a deadline anyway, because we’ve always had students appearing almost at the final exam saying that they just got their pink slips, but at any rate: what is the deadline, and in this special semester, are we allowed to be strict about the deadline?
