Course Test Accommodations
Reasonable modification of the conditions, manner, or duration under which tests are administrated is provided, depending on the particular functional limitations of the individual student's disability. Modifications include but are not limited to:
- Extended time and/or uncharged breaks
- Distraction-reduced setting
- Reader or scribe
- Computer for essay writing
- Assistance with completing scantron sheets
Students who qualify for testing accommodations should meet with the Testing Services Coordinator, Kristin Harte. Students are responsible for informing instructors of the need for testing accommodations and reminding them prior to any quiz, test or exam. Instructors can opt to administer the test in Accessibility Resources' Testing Center, or in a location of their own choosing that meets the recommendations outlined in the student's memo.
During the regular semester, students are required to schedule test appointments at least 3 business days in advance of the test date. Even earlier notice is needed during final exams. Students receive an email informing them of the scheduling deadline as finals approach. For more information, download the Test Accommodations, A Step-by-Step Guide: PDF (112KB) | Word (106KB)
Faculty and Instructors who choose to have tests administered in the Testing Center are responsible for delivering the test materials to Accessibility Resources and indicating a return method.
