Disability Services Exam Proctoring Policies and Procedures
Disability Services Exam Proctoring Policies
Oftentimes, students with disabilities receive testing accommodations such as additional time to test, testing in a distraction-reduced environment, and/or use of computer, scribe, or reader for testing. Some faculty members choose to provide special testing accommodations themselves, and Disability Services encourages this whenever possible. There are times when it may be difficult for faculty to make these accommodations. In instances where faculty members cannot provide the accommodations needed, tests may be proctored by the Academic Success Center’s Tutoring/Testing Center.
Step 1: Before each exam, the student should provide the professor with a Proctoring Form (found on link below), which is to be filled out completely. The first section of the form is to be completed by the student. The second section of the form should be completed by the faculty member.
Step 2: After the first and second sections of the Proctoring Form are completed, the student should bring the form to Disability Services office - Library, room 205. The form must be turned in 7 days in advance of the test date for test proctoring services to be used.
Step 3: Disability Services will set up a date/time for the student to take the exam when the student drops off the Proctoring Form. It is always recommended that the student take the exam on the same day and time as the class. However, if extended test taking time interferes with another class, other arrangements will be made with instructor approval.
Step 4: The professor should provide the Tutoring/Testing Center (Library – Room 203) with a copy of the test for the student to take at least 24 hours in advance of the test time.
