Assessment Criteria and Marking System
Candidates are required to successfully complete all exams, tests, tasks and
assignments contained in the online courses in order to graduate from the
programs.

Mode of Assessment
The assessment will be continuous and integrated. It will take place throughout
the course and each assessed component will contribute to the overall grade.
When a tutor asks a trainee to redo an assignment it is because the assignment
is below standard, that is, it is not a pass. Re-submission of unsatisfactory
assignments (Below Standard) for re-grading is at the discretion of the tutor and
the Director of Studies. See make-up policy for each program. 

ASSIGNMENTS AND EXAMS MAKE-UP POLICY

Rights and Code of Conduct
This code of conduct is designed to provide an explicit definition of the minimal

standards of personal conduct that Coventry House International- OnTESOL
expects of all its students. It represents a benchmark of expectations regarding
students, and defines the boundaries within a rewarding and mutually supportive
learning environment can be created. It is based on the assumption that most
students in the course already uphold these statements of conduct and can,
without reservation, endorse them.

A- Scope of conduct: Appropriate student conduct can be defined by
describing behaviors that demonstrate its presence and then, conversely, by
defining activities that clearly demonstrate its absence.

Student conduct will be demonstrated in the following areas of activity:
• Conduct related to academic performance
• Relationship with tutors and staff

B- Inappropriate behavior: students will ensure that their behavior is at all
times respectful of others.

Students are not to use the online environment to:
• Utter scurrilous, profane, or obscene language;
• Make remarks or engage in conduct that is racist, sexist, or in other ways
discriminatory as defined by the Ontario Human Rights Code;
• Engage in behaviors or make remarks that could reasonably be interpreted as
threatening;
• Encourage, by inaction or innuendo, the development of a learning environment
that is fractious, disrespectful of others, or inconsistent with the student code of
conduct.

C- Conduct related to academic performance: students will take responsibility
for their own academic achievement. Student will demonstrate their commitment
to their own goal of educational advancement by completing the assigned work,
and complying with copyright legislation, as outlined below:

• Students should complete assignments, projects, and other activities set by the
course for the evaluation, on time. If a student is unable to complete the work in
the designated time, he should discuss this matter with the tutor in advance of
the deadline date.

ZERO TOLERANCE POLICY ON PLAGIARISM AND CHEATING:
• Plagiarism: Plagiarism is an offense and will result in a failing grade for the
assignment and failing the course. For further information on plagiarism and the
internet please check this website: http://www.turnitin.com

• Cheating: Cheating includes but is not necessarily limited to: Collaboration in
the preparation of an assignment. Since our online courses are self-study,
collaboration will be viewed by Coventry House International-Ontesol as
cheating. Trainees who facilitate cheating by sharing assignments with other
trainees enrolled in the course will be expelled from the course. Graduates who
facilitate cheating by sharing assignments with other trainees enrolled in the
course will have their certification revoked.

D- Relationship with tutors and staff: Students may request input from additional
OnTESOL staff in cases of instructional uncertainty. Students have the right to a
learning environment free of harassment and discrimination. Students may
appeal grading or instructional concerns to the Director of Studies. Students and
tutors will abide by TESL Canada’s ethical guidelines, as described at http://
tesl.ca/ethical_guidelines.html

Equal Opportunity

OnTESOL has an equal opportunity policy in relation to gender and sexual
orientation, ethnicity, religion and beliefs. All student-trainees/ trainers/employees
shall be treated similarly, unhampered by artificial barriers or prejudices or
preferences, except when particular distinctions can be explicitly justified (i.e:
Accreditation requirements).

What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Comments

When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

Media

If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

Cookies

If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
