Moderator Resources

Three Critical Requirements
What paperwork is necessary to record/maintain during the course I am moderating?

Three critical pieces of paperwork are REQUIRED:

  • The (referred to as the A&GR) - It is extremely important that all attendance and grade entries be made accurately in ink each week. The completed A&GR becomes the primary permanent student record. Entries are considered complete, accurate, and final when received by The American College. The completed A&GR must be returned with the packet of completed examinations.
  • Final Exam Request/Class Roster Form- This form must be completed and returned after the 2nd class session in order for the Moderator or Proctor to receive the course exam packet.
  • The Final Exam - To receive credit for an FA course, all students must take a final exam. Exams are typically 50 multiple-choice questions that are administered by the Moderator during the 9th week of class. The exams are then mailed back to The College for grading.
