Test Taking Accommodations - Procedure for Students
University of Wisconsin Stevens Point
Instructors may take care of your test accommodations in their area. However, if they are not able to do so, they will refer you back to our office to make arrangements for taking tests. Since we organize test accommodations for about 800 exams each semester, we have a procedure for taking your tests through Disability Services.
Meet with the Coordinator of Disability Services to have forms completed that specify your test accommodation needs for each course.
- Meet with each instructor regarding your test accommodations and get clarification as to whether they will take care of your test accommodation or you will test through Disability Services. In some instances, you may need to take the exam through Disability Services since your test taking needs can only be accommodated through our office. In these cases, the accommodation request form will be marked accordingly.
- If scheduling your test(s) through Disability Services, stop in the office at 609 Learning Resource Center and complete the form for each test. You may now also complete the form online - Exam Accommodation Request Form. Forms need to be turned in to Disability Services five (5) school days/week days in advance of the test (please note that it takes five days to communicate between instructor, proctor, location source and you, before we finalize testing). A simpler *way would be to bring your syllabus to our office and complete a test form for all your exams (Please remember to notify us if there are any change in test dates and times).
- You will then receive an email with confirmation of your test day, time, and location. Your professor and proctor will also be notified.
- Your proctor will pick up the exam, sit with you during the exam to provide the instructor an assurance that the exam is protected at all times, and return the exam to the instructor.
If you have any questions regarding the test taking procedure through Disability Services, please call us at 346-3365. Thank you for your cooperation in this process.
