Center on Disability Faculty Corner
Policies, Procedures and Forms
- Students who are eligible to receive services through the Center on Disability will be provided with accommodation sheets each semester documenting for them and for you (the instructor) the specific accommodations to which they are entitled.
- Students are responsible for submitting the accommodation sheets to you, preferable during the first week of class, in order to ensure that the necessary accommodations will be provided. One copy of the accommodation sheet is given to you and a second copy is retained by the student.
- Students may arrange a private discussion with you to explain why they need the recommended accommodations.
- In addition to the accommodation sheets, students are provided with Instructor Acknowledgement Forms and are required to submit these forms to you along with the accommodation sheets. You are asked to acknowledge receipt of the accommodation sheets by filling out the notification forms and returning them to the Center on Disability.
Test Accommodation Information
The Center on Disability coordinates special testing accommodations for students who are eligible for alternative testing environments and formats. Students with disabilities requiring the privacy of a distraction-reduced setting, extended time testing, access to assistive technology or the services of a disability aide during testing may be scheduled to take their exams in one of our reserved testing rooms in the Center on Disability. Test procedures are monitored to ensure that the students are abiding by your testing guidelines and taking tests in an ethical and appropriate manner.
If a student is eligible for testing accommodations and needs to schedule a test date with the Center on Disability, he or she will be required to follow the following test administration procedures:
- As soon as a student becomes aware of a test date, he/she must pick up a Test Administration Form from the front desk in the Center on Disability.
- The student will complete the upper portion of the form and take it to you. You will fill out the appropriate portion of the form, return it to the student, and he/she will bring it to the Center on Disability.
- The secretary will schedule the test date once the form has been returned. In order to ensure room availability, assistive technology, and/or disability aide services, the Center on Disability requires at least two days notice prior to the scheduled test date.
PLEASE NOTE: Students with disabilities are not required to take their tests/exams in the Center on Disability. You can administer tests/exams to students with disabilities as long as you provide the appropriate accommodations.
