As an instructor, you can create exams that are accessible, flexible and rarely require accommodations. However, when exams pose disability-related barriers, effective accommodations must implemented.
Accommodate your exams in class
If you plan to provide test accommodations yourself, ensure that they are effective. Things to consider:
- Requested accommodations are provided.
- Test space is appropriate for concentrated effort.
- Students clearly understand when they need to finish the exam.
- If you plan to administer your own tests with accommodations, inform DRC through Instructor Login , (520) 621-5760 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Use DRC Exam Administration:
- If you are unable to provide appropriate access to exams in class, DRC Exam Administration is available. When students schedule to take an exam outside of the classroom, DRC will contact you for exam administration instructions, and to plan for secure receipt and return of exams.
- Access for online assessments can be set by you.
- Setting Extended time in Learning Management Systems (D2L, etc.)
- Set extended time in D2L
- Set extended time in Canvas
- Set extended time in My Pearson Labs
If you are using Examity to proctor online exams, disabled students will access Examity and use Examity. Should you or the student have questions about accessibility of the exam or Examity process, please contact DRC at (520) 621-5760 or email@example.com
