A: There are many kinds of documentation possibilities. What you use will depend on your program or project. However, here are some common document types:
- Exam results – summarize in a table or graph excluding all student identification (T numbers, names, etc.). Do not include a copy of each student’s results. Save as .pdf file.
- Handbooks - save as a .pdf file.
- Websites and documents on websites – websites and links to websites are prone to change over time and without notice. Therefore, it is best to print as a .pdf file any websites that you want to use as documentation. Any files that will be more than 10-20 pages long (use your discretion) should be narrowed down to the pertinent pages for your evidence. It may be necessary to write a brief narrative cover page to your document to explain how the pages provide support your CAS report or annual project.
A: Weave only recognizes MS Word and .PDF files for online viewing, so please save all files in these formats. Spreadsheets and PowerPoint presentations should be saved as .pdf. Other file types can be uploaded but must be downloaded to review. This is not ideal for reviewers.
