Assessments are done through a variety of formats; there are quizzes, tests, discussions, and assignments that our teachers use for assessment. Students will be required to appear on video for some assessments in their course.
Students must write quizzes, tests, and exams alone without the assistance of friends, parents, tutors, or any other person. Students are not to access any outside material, including coursework and/or notes with the exception of formula sheets in certain assessments where it has been indicated as permitted by the teacher and in the assessment details. Students with an Individual Education Plan (IEP) or similar documents may be permitted to utilize outside material upon approval from the BG Academy Online office.
Students that copy information from their course, their notes, or any other source and present them as their own answers will be given a grade of zero on the entire assessment. Answers that are very similar to those given in the course content will be investigated to determine whether they could be committed to memory or not within reason.
Any violation of the aforementioned is considered a serious academic offence and a grade of zero will be applied to the entire assessment and students may be removed from the course without credit.
Students will be required to answer questions on quizzes, tests, and exams via the video note feature built into the system. For all video submissions, students must make their face visible in order for teachers to adequately identify them. If students refuse to show their face in the video, this will be considered academic dishonesty and the student will be penalized or may be removed from the course without credit.
Once you register online, and pick the courses you are interested in, you will be automatically enrolled and can access the course materials.
