Exam Accommodations

EXAM ACCOMMODATION SIGN-UP PROCEDURES

1. SIGN UP 3-5 BUSINESS DAYS IN ADVANCE OF EXAM OR QUIZ

Students who wish to take their exams or quizzes with extended time at Student Disability Services (SDS) need to communicate with Jenny Brazenall 3-5 business days in advance via email - jennifer.brazenall@wne.edu, calling 782-1258, or coming to SDS in Herman Hall, Room 105.  Advance notice is critical in order for SDS to coordinate space and to communicate with instructors. Jenny emails the specific instructor once a student signs up. You typically sign up to take an exam on the same day and at the same time the class takes it.

  1. EXTENDED TIME RUNNING INTO ANOTHER CLASS TIME

If you have an exam or quiz where the extended time will run into your next class’ time, then it is your responsibility to talk to the instructor about how to schedule the exam with SDS – by starting the exam earlier than the class, taking it at a different time or on another day, etc. You would then sign up with SDS, at the newly agreed upon time, 3-5 business days in advance of the exam.

  1. IN CLASS QUIZ FOLLOWED BY LECTURE

There are times when you might have a quiz at the start of class and then need to sit for the lecture. It is your responsibility to work out with the instructor what might work best – signing up to take the quiz at SDS prior to class then head to class, taking the quiz on an alternate day, etc. You would then sign up with SDS, at the agreed upon time, 3-5 business days in advance of the exam.

  1. ARRIVE ON TIME TO SDS

Students need to arrive on time to take exams and/or quizzes at SDS in order for the office to maintain the exam schedule and exam integrity. Please plan to arrive 5 minutes before your exam starts.  Typically, there is another student scheduled after your exam who needs to use the same exam room. In addition, instructors are entrusting SDS to provide you with the accommodation at the agreed upon time.  If you arrive late (past 15 minutes) SDS can ask that you go back to the instructor to reschedule the exam which he/she may or may not allow you to do.
