Nella Vekic started this petition to Professor Jade Atallah

Our BIO207 class was never informed that we would have a quiz the weekend before exams start. Although it's a small percentage of our grade, these quizzes are still very time consuming and I'm sure many of us have exams this week to study for. In the syllabus it only states that we will have quizzes totaling 10% of our mark, but it never states how many we will have or the dates of the quizzes. 

According to the 2018-2019 UTM Academic Handbook in section 1.A.(iii) "Term work must be assigned due dates. All term work must be submitted by the last day of classes in the course concerned, unless an alternate date is specified by the instructor". Professor Atallah never specified that we would have this quiz due after the last day of classes, therefore she should not be assigning this quiz. 

This goes against the university's newly adopted mental health policy as it puts unnecessary stress on students immediately before exams. 

This petition will be given to Professor Atallah in order to drop this quiz from our assessed coursework. If you also share the viewpoint that this quiz is unfair and if you wish to not complete this quiz please sign the petition.
