KAM Demonstrations

Return to: KAM Policies and Processes 

Prior to the submission of any KAM demonstration, students must have an approved Learning Agreement on file in the registrar’s office. Students are responsible for ensuring their Learning Agreements have been approved prior to developing their KAMs. KAM demonstrations submitted without an approved Learning Agreement on file will be returned to the student.

Submission and Evaluation of a KAM Demonstration

  1. The KAM must be presented in the format indicated by the KAM template.
  2. Students send the initial drafts of their KAM demonstration to their assessor. Students must submit their KAM demonstrations for evaluation electronically as a Word document, either via the dropbox in SBSF 7100 (if the assessor is also the student’s faculty mentor) or as an e-mail attachment.
  3. An assessor is allowed 14 calendar days to evaluate a KAM demonstration from the time of its receipt.
  4. If the assessor determines changes are necessary to the KAM demonstration, the assessor electronically returns an evaluation form and/or any additional comments and questions to the student so that the KAM demonstration can be revised.
  5. Students revise their draft KAM demonstrations as needed and resubmit the KAM demonstrations to their assessor.
  6. If substantive changes have occurred to the approved Learning Agreement while a student has been working on the KAM demonstration, then at the same time that the final KAM demonstration is submitted, the student must also submit a revised Learning Agreement.
  7. If the assessor approves the student’s KAM demonstration, the assessor submits the evaluation form and the completed KAM indicating approval to the registrar, with a copy to the student.
  8. Students will automatically receive a KAM experience evaluation form to complete when their KAM is received at the registrar’s office.

Notification of Acceptance of the KAM Demonstration by the University

The registrar’s office documents the final ratification of KAM demonstrations and notifies students, assessors, and faculty mentors by e-mail within 21 calendar days. Students are encouraged to check with the records department to verify receipt of the KAM demonstration if they have not been notified.
