We are committed to ensuring that learning continue during this unforeseen time of disruption. On Monday, March 30, Riordan launched a revised distance learning protocol for students that divides courses into two-week learning modules. The plan incorporates best practice research and input from faculty and students, and aims to serve current academic needs in the best way possible. Please see this overview for more information.

Final Exams and Second Semester Grades
Riordan will not be giving traditional final exams this year. This was not a decision that we came to lightly, but after evaluating several options, we believe this is the most equitable solution. Second Semester grades will be based on:
(1) assessments given in the third quarter (in person) 
(2) assessments given in the fourth quarter (distance learning)

365bet体育官网 The following is a timeline for the remaining weeks of the school year.

4/20 - 5/1: Module 2
5/4 - 5/15: Module 3 (Revisions and extra faculty Office Hours)
365bet体育官网 5/18 - 5/22: Extra grading time
