Dawson College moves most final exams online

"For the handful of examinations that must take place at Dawson," the college's academic dean said, "we will ensure that everyone follows health and safety protocols."

Dawson College announced Friday that nearly all the CEGEP’s final exams will take place remotely, as cases of COVID-19 remain at elevated levels in Quebec.

“In response to new guidelines from the Ministère de l’Enseignement supérieur and the Direction régionale de la santé publique with respect to a period of voluntary confinement, as well as important logistical constraints, Dawson College will shift nearly all final examinations to online platforms,” said Diane Gauvin, the college’s academic dean, in a memo to teachers.

All exams, except those with an essential in-person practical component, will be conducted online, the school wrote in a statement to the media.

The college was going to have in-person exams run up until Dec. 23, but some of those exams would have prevented students from isolating themselves before seeing family during the Quebec government’s four-day period, from Dec. 24 to 27, when small gatherings are allowed.
