[teknoids] How do you deploy Macs?

Hi Adam,

I would say the best (but certainly not the only) solution out there is JAMF, formerly known as Casper Suite. We’ve reached a point of critical mass with the sheer number of Apple devices here at UNC Law and, fortunately, are about to piggyback on a UNC system-wide site license for JAMF to start managing more effectively all our Apple assets.

You can learn more at https://www.jamf.com/

Best,
Doug
P.S. Tell Gary I said hey! Or I’ll just say it myself: Hey, Gary! ;-)

What would you suggest for Mac deployment? Our number of macs and issues with App purchases have increased and we are looking for ways to manage this steady growth and our need to better manage Apps.

Good Afternoon all :)



Can someone please explain to me the following:





1.      Are ABA credited law schools required to withhold the names of students from faculty of those who have been granted student accommodations?  Can faculty know their name[s] and what the accommodation is? And what regulation, ABA rule, etc. dictates this process?



2.      Are ABA credited law schools required to use anonymous numbers/grading?  If so, what regulation, ABA rule, etc. dictates this process?



Anyone know the origin/background of these? -Patty

I’m no expert, but I don’t think either point is *required* by any existing ABA rule. They are, rather, common practice among law schools to help protect the integrity of grading in general. Almost every law school academic policy I reviewed before replying states that anonymous grading is the norm (except in experiential and seminar classes, in which it is almost impossible), but no ABA rule or guideline is referenced in any of these policies. It’s fair to say the same is true in the case of accommodations, but I cannot swear to it.

I have a question about how schools handle all the different apps in Office 365.



Microsoft keeps adding apps to Office 365.  Do you leave all the apps active?  Do you provide support for the apps?   Or if students ask how to use an app, are they told "Look it up"?  Do you restrict access to certain apps?  How many people does it take to administer and support Office 365?

While I question whether I am smarter than Doug, I agree that these matters are not ABA accreditation driven. I haven’t researched the questions, so consider this an educated guesss. The policies regarding revealing accommodations are in response to a combination of FERPA and the ADA, or IDEA (Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act, Americans with Disablity Act, Individuals with Disabilities Education Act). I’m betting someone else on the list has researched this very question and may have a response for us.



I think anonymous grading is a policy that developed over time in response to a perceived need to have unbiased grading on a high stakes written test. While FERPA would protect one’s grades from being released to other students, a professor is not so restricted.

Patty,



I am also no expert but here’s my pass at the answers to your questions:



In the 2015-2016 ABA Standards and Rules of Procedure for Approval of Law Schools (sorry I don’t have the 16/17 one on hand), in the keyword index “accommodations” is mentioned in Standard 207 and 702(b).



Standard 207 discusses “reasonable accommodation for qualified individuals with disabilities”.

Standard 702(b) discusses facilities that “shall provide reasonable access and accommodations to persons with disabilities, consistent with applicable law.”



As far as ABA standards and rules, I don’t see anything to answer your first question. However, having worked with the disability service center on our campus, I believe the rules and guidelines regarding anonymity of an individual with a disability is guided by that unit. So, I would check with them for your campus.



Regarding your second question, I quickly went through the ABA standards and rules and didn’t see anything specific about “anonymous grading” but as Doug said, it is the norm since much of the grading is subjective and faculty want to avoid any signs of favoritism.

Thank you all for your responses on this.  I am certainly learning a lot and “may” have a better understanding.  There does seem to be a bit of a gray area, am I picking up on this correctly?  It seems Law schools start with a basic “rule” and then have some flexibility with how they proceed.  I was previously a professor at a non-law school for over ten years and never came across the level of detail and process I am seeing on these two matters.  I was trying to get a handle on where some of the motivation/history was coming from.  I appreciate the conversation.  ☺ -Patty

Patty,



I passed this question over to Cumberland’s Director of Student Services and ADA Accommodations. Her answer is below. She didn’t specifically answer in her email whether the name of the student is disclosed to the professor, so I checked back and they do give the name of the student with the accommodation to the professor:



Jeff,



These questions fall under FERPA and best practices more than ABA.  FERPA allows for an institution to disclose, without consent, information such as this only to school officials that have legitimate educational interests in the information.  As for the technological end of things, FERPA requires that institutions use reasonable methods to ensure that school officials obtain access to only those education records in which they have legitimate educational interests.



As for our safety checks:



·         Student Services discloses (after drop-add) via letter to faculty members the accommodations for which their students are eligible.  The letter does not disclose the disability—only the accommodation(s) granted.  Students who wish to disclose more information may do so via direct communication with the professor.



·         Student Services does not collect medical documentation.  This is maintained in the university’s Disabilities Resources office.  Because we do not maintain such files, we can ensure that faculty are not granted unauthorized access.



·         All students are graded anonymously without indication of a student who has taken the test with accommodation.



·         Student Services oversees all ADA exam administration and includes those exams in the “regular” collection so professors may grade without bias or prejudice.



Hope this helps.  I’m glad to talk with anyone who has questions.

I’m no expert, but I don’t think either point is *required* by any existing ABA rule. They are, rather, common practice among law schools to help protect the integrity of grading in general. Almost every law school academic policy I reviewed before replying states that anonymous grading is the norm (except in experiential and seminar classes, in which it is almost impossible), but no ABA rule or guideline is referenced in any of these policies. It’s fair to say the same is true in the case of accommodations, but I cannot swear to it.



I bet Ken Hirsch would know! He’s way smarter than I am. ;-)



Best,

Doug

Good Afternoon all ☺



Can someone please explain to me the following:





  1.  Are ABA credited law schools required to withhold the names of students from faculty of those who have been granted student accommodations?  Can faculty know their name[s] and what the accommodation is? And what regulation, ABA rule, etc. dictates this process?

  2.  Are ABA credited law schools required to use anonymous numbers/grading?  If so, what regulation, ABA rule, etc. dictates this process?



Anyone know the origin/background of these? -Patty
