Depending on the course, assignments are submitted to a Marker or teacher, who marks and returns assignments to you. Assignments may be submitted by mail, e-mail, fax or using the D2L DropBox (online courses only) Please check with your teacher to determine the preferred method. Return times depend on the schedule of the Marker or teacher and the mode of submission.
E-mailing of assignments
- You may do your written work using your word processor. Save the file in the highest version of Microsoft Word you have available, or Claris Works/Apple Works. If these are not available, please contact us for the next best choice. The PDF format is also recommended.
- Write an e-mail message identifying yourself (name and file number), the course, lesson or module, and the word processor format you used (name and version). Attach your work to the e-mail as a separate document that the Marker or teacher can download and mark appropriately before returning it to you. Any picture files should be embedded in the word processor document if possible; otherwise, indicate the file format of the pictures (GIF, JPEG, PICT, BMP).

If your course involves mathematics or scientific equations, you need a word processor that supports superscripts and subscripts as well as mathematical and scientific symbols. The Equation Editor in Word (Use Insert: Object: Microsoft equation 2.0.) and Claris Works/Apple Works allow you to input complex equations. For Apple Works, students need a program called “MathType”. This program is also available for Windows. Knowledge of expressing equations using parentheses and the order of operations also can be helpful.
Distance and distributed learning courses have examinations: quiz, mid-term, and final. The exams are written on paper or online depending on the course delivery method you choose. Unless you are registered in a school that will schedule your exams, you decide where, on what day, and during what hours you will write your exam.
Most ADLC course mid-terms and all final exams must be supervised. It is your responsibility to find an exam supervisor (we do offer suggestions), complete the Exam Supervisor Application form and return it to ADLC's Exam Department via fax (780-674-6977) or email (
). Upon receiving the completed form, the supervisor will be attached to your file enabling the exam department to distribute your exam once it is triggered. The Exam Supervisor Application form may be obtained on our website...
If a student scores less than 40%, and in some cases 50%, on a final exam, the course work will
not be considered when the final grade is determined. Students are
encouraged to contact their teacher if this situation occurs.
Diploma Exams are written during specific times of the year as determined by Alberta Education. Please see the Diploma Exam Handbook for further information ...
