Accommodations for exams allow students with disabilities to fairly represent their knowledge and skills while mitigating the impact of disability-related impairments. There are several different types of accommodations that may be suggested based on the academic environment, the course objectives, and the abilities of the student. Arranging and providing accommodations is an interactive process between the student, faculty member, and the DRO.
Approved accommodations are outlined in a student’s Accommodation Letter. Students should discuss with their faculty how approved exam accommodations will be implemented well in advance of the need to use them. Faculty that have concerns regarding the implementation of specific accommodations should contact the DRO.
The DRO provides test proctoring as a service to faculty that teach within departments that do not have the space or resources to provide accommodations.
