Management of the University of Cape Coast has cautioned it’s lecturers against conducting any form assessment test, whether quizzes, assignments, or examinations, online.

According to the management, online academic work is restricted to lectures and tutorials, therefore any other form of activity [aside from the aforementioned] will be “non-scoring.”

“We wish to remind all teaching staff of the decision taken at an emergency meeting of the Executive Committee of the Academic Board held on 8th April 2020 that online academic work should be limited to lectures and tutorials.
