Even if it is easier to not take a Final - I do think taking a Final has value. It is nice that it is optional.

Two things for instructors to consider regarding finals (for now or the future): (1) making them project based rather than a traditional summative assessment. (2) Altering the weight the summative assessment has on a students’ grades, especially through a lens of equity.

Cindy Hart

@ Oliva -- yes having pre-recorded lectures and videos is super to review at will (and over and over and over again)! I hear students though who miss the one on one interactions.

What do you do if you have reached out to a professor and they don’t seem to be understanding?

@Christine - what I’ve had students do is work with me on how to frame your request so you can put it in a way a teacher might understand
