As an instructor, you can create exams that are accessible, flexible and rarely require accommodations and explore recommended alternative assessments or OIA's "Planning for Remote Teaching," steps 2 and 3. However, when exams pose disability-related barriers, effective accommodations must implemented.
Your student information can be found through the instructor login on the DRC website at any time. View steps for accessing your list of DRC students. Access your student list before each exam as accommodations may change throughout the semester. DRC staff are happy to discuss ways to facilitate access for students taking exams in your course (i.e. extended time, minimal distraction, text-to-speech software, etc.).
Administer exams without DRC
If you plan to provide test accommodations yourself, ensure that they are effective. Things to consider:
- Inform DRC through Instructor Login , (520) 621-5760 or email@example.com
- Requested accommodations are provided.
- Test space is appropriate for concentrated effort.
- Students clearly understand when they need to finish the exam.
Access for online assessments can be set by you.
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
- To view how to set up extended time through Examity using D2L, access the Instructor Quick Guide (PDF). Additional Instructor Quick Guides are available on the University's Examity page.
Administer Exams at DRC
DRC-Testing will be open for proctoring with a reduced capacity for in-person classes. Due to the reduced capacity, we encourage instructors to provide accommodations when possible.
- A class instruction form will be sent via automated email to all instructors with any active accommodation request(s). Please complete this form within one week of receiving.
- Additionally, a separate test administration instruction form will be sent via automated email to instructors when a student schedules an exam. We ask that this form is completed at least 2 business days prior to the exam.
- Exams will be scheduled as close to class time as possible without overlapping with another class.
