Universal Academic Standards



Members of Hogwarts Online,


Starting this Fall Term 2019, new Academic Standards will be put into place on Hogwarts Online.  These standards must be utilized by all professors so as to ensure that how a student goes about earning points and a Quill is equitable across all courses being offered.


We ask that everyone take a moment to read the important information below, as these standards go into effect on September 5th when Fall Term officially opens.  Below you will find information about Class Quills, Class Points, Classroom Set-Up, and Non-Class Quills.



Class Quills

- Professors will be required to post and update a Tracker for students to follow their progress in class.

- Students will need to number every post they make in class.

- A countable post is considered to be 5 sentences or more.


Acceptable Quill: 5 posts
Exceeds Expectations Quill: 8 posts
Outstanding Quill: 10+ posts



Class Points
- Professors will be required to post and update a Tracker for students to follow their progress in class.

- Students will need to number every post they make in class.

- Every post will be worth 2 points.

- RPCs will be worth 5 points in addition to the 2 points for the post.

- Extra Credit points will be given at the discretion of the professor.



Classroom Set-Up

- Every professor must post and pin a Sign-Up/Points Tracker before term begins.

- Professors must update the points Tracker regularly throughout the term so students may monitor their Quill progress.
- Professors must post and pin their Syllabus before term begins and include the Universal Standards.
- Classes should be self-paced, though professors are still required to participate and be present.
- Ideally, all lessons should be posted in classrooms prior to the start of term.
- Unless necessary, journals should no longer be created for classes.



Non-Class Quills

- All NCQs must be approved and submitted into the HO Office by the Academics Governors.
- Anyone may apply for a student club or event to award NCQs, though this must be approved by the Academics Governors and proof must be provided of work completed to earn Quills.  

- A PM should be sent to the Academics Governors with a list of students who have earned a NCQ through an approved event, including any necessary documentation of proof before the Academics Governors submit them in the HO Office.

Currently, the following are Non-Class Quills approved by the Academics Governors:
Quidditch Quills
Teaching Quills
HOAnniverary and HOlidays Quills
Durmstrang RP Bingo Quills
Durmstrang Pride Quills
Teaching Assistant Quills (info here)
