If you require accommodations for classroom tests or quizzes, you must first complete an intake with a Disability Specialist by scheduling an appointment with the Disability Services Office. The nature and extent of accommodations are based on the specific disability and are determined during your intake meeting.
Make appointments with Testing Services as soon as you know when your exam is scheduled. Make your appointment in person at the Testing Services Office in the Gordon Student Center room 230C, by calling 498-2484 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
The testing accommodations most frequently requested are: extended time and a quiet, less distracting environment. Other accommodations may include, but are not limited to, tests read via adaptive technology such as Kurzweil, use of Jaws or Dragon Dictate and access to a computer or calculator. Students should make requests for testing accommodations as early as possible.
If you believe you need testing accommodations in addition to time extension or quiet space for placement testing, you MUST first submit documentation of your disability to the Disability Services Office (IEP, psychological evaluation, etc). Once your documentation is received and evaluated, you will be contacted by the Testing Services Office with details about when to complete placement testing with accommodations. Documentation can be faxed or mailed to the DSO office:
