Managing Extended Time and other Exam Accommodations' Request
When a student requests to use testing accommodations in your class, they can be provided either by you or by our office.
The preferable method is for you or your GTA to administer the test with the given accommodations. This allows the student the same access to you or your GTA that his/her peers have when questions pertaining to the test arise. This also allows you immediate access to the test for grading purposes. You and your student would simply agree on a place and time to take the exam that allows for all requested accommodations to be adequately provided. If you have any questions about how to provide a certain accommodation, please do not hesitate to contact us at 4-2096. If your student’s accommodations list the need for specialized technology for tests, our office would probably be better suited to provide the proctoring.
If you have determined that you are not able to provide the proctoring due to scheduling issues or the student’s specific accommodations requested, our office will be glad to proctor the exam. Once you have made the student aware of his/her need to have a test proctored in our office, the student will initiate the request using our online proctor request system. The system will notify you that a request for your test has been submitted and prompt you to log in for approval. The next step will be our Proctor Coordinator scheduling the test and getting back in touch with you to secure a copy of the exam. The student will need to make this request at least 5 business days prior to the test. We also ask that you approve the test as soon as possible after receiving the notification. This ensures proper scheduling of the test. If you have any questions, our proctor coordinator can be reached at 4-2096.
