Test proctoring program
One of the most common needs for students with disabilities
is testing accommodations. Many disabilities are supported by
accommodations such as extended testing time, testing in a
reduced distraction space, and use of computer assisted testing.
To assist faculty in providing these accommodations, students
who have testing needs may request to have their accommodated
exams proctored in the Learning and Writing Center.
Who can use this service?
The test proctoring in the Learning and Writing Center is
only available for students with disabilities who are eligible
for testing accommodations. These accommodations are the result
of having a documented disability.
Note: Students with the accommodation of extended testing
time may have a maximum of double time. Any student requesting
more than double time must have an explicit recommendation from
a qualified medical professional.
