Student Validity Process
To assure that the student who enrolls in an online course/program is the same student who participates in and completes the program and receives the academic credits:
- The student who enrolls for the online course is ‘batched’ into the course through SPIRE and Blackboard Learn using only the information from their registration.
- The student uses their assigned login credential to actually log into the course each time they want access to the course.
- UMass Amherst IT’s acceptable use policy further addresses this topic.
- Therefore, the person who has those credentials is the same person doing the work.
- Online faculty state in their syllabus information about the University’s academic honesty rules and the potential results for any violations.
- Online faculty input grades via SPIRE for each student based upon the same registration information.
Students seeking transcripts for non-credit courses (those with subject areas beginning with LL, such as LLAMS) should contact the CPE Registration Office at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 413-545-3653 or 800-922-8211.
See the academic calendar to determine when grades will show on transcripts for each term. Grades for Summer Session 1 will not be reflected on transcripts until the entire summer term has ended.
