CSD Department's Policy on Use of Electronic Personal Devices in the ClassroomUnless otherwise directed by the course instructor, it is the policy of the West Virginia University Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders that:
- Cell phones should be silenced and put away during all class periods, and that
students are not to leave class with the purpose of checking them.
- While laptops and tablet computers may be permitted for purposes of note-taking,
activities including (but not limited to) web browsing, texting, messaging, and
any form of social networking are prohibited during class periods.
- In addition to cell phones and computers, no technology, including (but not limited
to) electronic calculators, portable media (mp3) players, smartphones, personal
data assistants, and e-book readers, should be at or near students’ seats during
any in-class test, quiz, or other form of learning assessment.
- Students who require assistive technology must present documentation from Disability Services to the course instructor at the beginning of the semester.
