Procedures for Testing Accommodations in the Learning Center
The learning center has developed a schedule of test proctoring hours that will help in creating a distraction-free environment and assist the learning center staff in adequately covering all of the requests. The test proctoring hours are available to students with the following accommodations:
Extended time on in-class tests and quizzes
A distraction-free testing space for in-class tests and exams
BEGINNING OF EACH SEMESTER
Students should speak with their instructors after receiving their accommodations letters at the beginning of the semester. The discussion should include the accommodations listed in their letter and how these accommodations can be arranged (test proctoring, note-taking assistance etc.). Students do not need to divulge any diagnoses. Discuss where tests will be taken--within the classroom, in the Learning Center, or elsewhere at the permission of the instructor
A WEEK BEFORE EACH TEST
Students should communicate with their instructors at least three days in advance to determine an appropriate test time and location. This communication could be through email or before or after class. Students must do the following:
If tests are to be taken in the Learning Center, students will make the request by logging into Accommodate and select the mutually agreed upon date and time.
NOTE: If students have an accommodation to take tests on a computer, they can use their own computers only when:
the tests are administered through Moodle and
the students have downloaded Lockdown Browser onto their computers.
If the test is not administered through Moodle, students will complete tests on a Learning Center computer.
When students arrive to the Learning Center, they will leave their bags and cellphone outside the office of the overseeing Learning Center staff, and demonstrate that they have no notes on their person.
Students with accommodations of extended testing time should understand that if they take breaks during their tests, the breaks will count toward the original stated length of time for the test.
After the student's professor approves the test time, students will get notified and they can login to Accommodate to add test time to their Outlook calendar. Students should arrive on time to take full advantage of their testing accommodation.
