Working with the Office of Accessibility to Proctor Exams
Once you have made a student aware you will not be able to provide testing accommodations yourself and that proctoring needs to be arranged through our office, the student will initiate the process through our online system.
This system is housed within Banner. The student will access the online request form through their Tigeri tab. Once the form is completed, an automatic email will be sent to you. The email will ask that you log into Banner, navigate to the “Faculty Services” tab, click on “Disability Exam Scheduling” under “Faculty Quick Links”, acknowledge the request and add any additional information that you think will be helpful—i.e. open book/notes, calculator allowed, etc. Other information that we ask you include:
- preference for pick-up/delivery of the completed test—as well as an office number with either your mailbox or someone who can sign for the exam. (Exams that are completed in the afternoon or after normal business hours may need to be delivered the next business day. If you need it sooner, please arrange for the pickup of the exam.)
- a contact number that can be used to contact you in the event of questions or emergencies during the exam.
We ask that you complete your portion of the request form as soon as possible after receiving the notification so that we can schedule the test properly and efficiently.
Once the exam has been scheduled, you will receive an email with the scheduled date and time, as well as a reminder about delivering the exam to our office. We ask that you deliver a copy of the exam (email or hard copy) to our office at least 24 hours before the test is scheduled to be taken in our office. If the test must be converted to an alternative format, please deliver it at least 48 hours in advance.
While every effort will be made for each test to be scheduled at the same time as the class is taking it, this is not always possible due to the student’s schedule, the availability of proctors, and the availability of testing space.
