Testing Accommodations

Testing Accommodations

The Office of Accessible Education (OAE) is only able to administer exams for those students with dual disabilities requiring double time (2X) extension for exams or for students using assistive technology. Faculty may request to have students approved for extended time to take exams with OAE if there are four or more students requiring extra time in one section of a class. If you have students or courses that meet these criteria, then you will click on the link provided in the email notifying you of students’ eligibilities to inform the Office of Accessible Education of the details of the exams we will be proctoring. The student will then schedule the time of the exam directly with the Office of Accessible Education.

For students with 1.5X time, arrangements should be made within your department to proctor these exams.

Alternative Test Site

Alternative Test Site- A reduced distraction environment that is reasonably quiet with low stimuli. The environment doesn’t need to be a silent private setting nor necessitate students testing with OAE. The environment can include taking the test with other students and the room chosen must allow for students to start and finish their exams with limited interruptions (e.g. a conference room, an office, or another classroom that has been reserved).
