In connection to the unprecedented suspension of classes caused by COVID-19, the following shall guide all Faculty Members both in the undergraduate & graduate levels in coming up with the Final Grade in Courses enrolled this Second Semester, AY 2019-2020:
- In consonance with CHEd Advisory No. 3, par. 5, “Students are to be evaluated on the basis of available indicators as of this time and forego other curricular activities for the remainder of the semester;” the Teachers can now proceed with the computation of the Final Rating. The Deans of the different colleges agreed to use 40-40-20 formula to come up with the Final Grade or the duly approved formula used by the College, whichever is favorable to the student.
- The sudden suspension of classes loses the chance of students to make-up for any insufficiencies in any of their subjects, all Teachers are advised to be more considerate and lenient in cases when students fall short of the required or passing grade.
- Online examinations are strongly discouraged due to lack of luxury of high speed and reliable internet connections of students especially those who are residing outside the city. Other alternative activities in any subject that would endanger the students must be avoided.
- For subjects that require thesis, capstone, etc. as final requirement, the Teachers should find the safest alternative for students to comply.
- Grades are expected to be ready for viewing anytime when normal office hours resume. Hard copies of grade sheets shall be collected within the week after the resumption of office.
- The School of Law is expected to adhere to advisories and instructions coming from the Legal Education Board, while the Basic Education Department must observe strict compliance to advisories and instructions given by the Department of Education.
