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 email@example.com
Use DRC Exam Administration:
If you are unable to provide appropriate access to exams in class or online, 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. View instructions on how to access an excel list of your disabled students (PDF)
- Setting Extended time in Learning Management Systems:
If you are using Examity to proctor online exams, most disabled students will access and use Examity. If DRC determines that a student is not able to use Examity for disability-related reasons, DRC will contact you. Should you or the student have questions about accessibility of the exam or Examity process, please contact DRC at (520) 621-5760 or firstname.lastname@example.org
