To better serve students, Chemeketa Community College has a No-Show Drop procedure based on class attendance during the 1st week of the term.
What does Chemeketa’s No-Show Drop procedure mean for your online students?
- Online and face-to-face classes begin on the same day
- Students must participate in online classes by Wednesday of the 1st week of the term, or the instructor may drop them from the class
Advice to Online Instructors
In order to help facilitate student success, Chemeketa Online will be sending a reminder to students who have not logged in to their online courses by Wednesday of the first week of term that they must do so right away or could potentially be dropped from the course.
The college recommends instructors drop students who have not participated by the second day of the class. The online department strongly recommends that you wait until Monday of the second week of term before doing No-Show Drops, unless you have a long wait list for your course. Contact Bonnie Macey at 503.589.7710 if you have any questions.
How should you communicate your No-Show Drop policy to your students?
We recommend that you define class participation in your syllabus and by emailing students before class begins. Examples of participation might include:
- Posting an introduction in a discussion forum
- Completing a quiz reviewing syllabus material
- Sending the instructor an e-mail
- Submitting an assignment
What if a student cannot participate in your online class by Wednesday of the 1st week?
Your syllabus or, other class guidelines should provide information If students cannot participate in their online classes before this time, they should be directed to contact their instructors.
How do you drop a student who does not participate in your online class?
How will students know if they have been dropped?
If students are dropped, they will be notified at their Chemeketa e-mail account and through regular mail. (Being dropped from a class may affect eligibility for tuition assistance veterans, financial aid recipients, and students sponsored by agencies.)
