Administering these exams is a complex and time-consuming process, and we require enough preparation time to secure the exam from instructors, book spaces, hire staff to invigilate, and arrange disability-related exam accommodations.
Accommodating students with disabilities
We will need the following information: Exam accommodations are intended to remove the effects of a disability on a student's demonstration of knowledge and skills.
Accommodations are based on a student's documented disability.
The student's responsibility is to provide you with an Academic Accommodation Letter from Access & Diversity that identifies the accommodations that they are eligible for in an academic setting and the contact information for their Access & Diversity Accessibility Advisor.
It is important that this information be held in confidence.
Last update: May 4, 2016 by Vicky Tran The University is committed to providing access for students with disabilities while maintaining academic standards.
As the provision of academic accommodations can be complex given the range of possible instructional/exam formats, providing accommodations is best accomplished through a collaboration between the instructor, the student, and an Access & Diversity Advisor.Examples of accommodations include additional exam time, providing exam questions in audio format, or allowing the use of a computer to write exams.Effective May 1, 2016, exam hours have been extended from 8 am to pm to provide increased service to students and faculty.You are not authorized to adjust these accommodations unless academic standards are compromised.If you believe that implementing with academic accommodations listed in the letter will compromise the academic standards of your course, contact the Accessibility Advisor listed on the letter.Faculty and staff organizing events on campus are encouraged to budget for interpreting and/or captioning services.
