Students who are registered with the Center for Accessibility and Learning Equity and have approved testing accommodations are entitled to receive those accommodations for any test, quiz, or exam. Faculty should provide a testing environment as outlined in the student’s accommodation letter. The Center for Accessibility and Learning Equity may provide test proctoring when all other options have been exhausted.
Student and instructors may make any arrangements for testing accommodations which are fair to the student and to the class requirements. Students with extended time on exams may need an alternate test time if they have another class immediately following the one in which they have an exam.
The most frequent testing accommodations are extended time (150%) and a distraction reduced environment. A distraction-reduced environment does not mean a private testing room. The best practice for a distraction-reduced environment is to allow a student to test in a room that minimizes outside noise and has no more than a total of six students testing at a time. Oftentimes, an empty, adjacent classroom is an ideal way to provide this environment.
Students who will test with the Center for Accessibility and Learning Equity are expected to schedule an appointment to take the test as soon as the test is announced, or at least three business days in advance. Please note that the Center for Accessibility and Learning Equity (CALE) staff may be unable to proctor during the scheduled class period or on the same day that the exam is scheduled for the class.
