THERE WILL BE NO WALK-IN TESTING ALLOWED
General Testing Procedures
Students who request testing accommodations must pre-arrange with instructors and Disability Services for Students (DSS) at least 3 business days prior to the testing date.
How To Request Testing Accommodations
Students: It is the student's responsibility to arrange for their testing accommodations. Please discuss accommodation requests with your instructors at the beginning of each semester when you present your accommodation card. A few days before each exam, remind your instructor of your accommodation needs, determine arrangements of time, room and test delivery.
Instructors: Students are to discuss the accommodation requests with you at the beginning of the semester, and again when new tests are announced. It is the student’s responsibility to arrange for his/her accommodations. Requests for extended time and/or quiet room may be accommodated in several ways:
If this choice is acceptable, the student needs to inform DSS as to the delivery and return of the test to you. Tests may be faxed (387-0633), e-mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org (that is dss_exams @wmich .edu or hand delivered to our office at Woodlawn Place, 2210 Wilbur St. (this building is also where the Children’s Learning Place is located). A member of the DSS staff can return the test to you if you would rather not pick it up. Please indicate what materials a student has permission to use in the testing room, as nothing is allowed unless specifically stated by you.
We have a protocol for tests in our office, if you are an instructor, please feel free to e-mail Jennifer.email@example.com and request our protocol.
Once a student has made arrangements for testing accommodations at our facility, DSS follows strict security procedures to ensure the integrity of the test. Tests are kept under lock and key, carried by DSS staff into the testing room, and then returned to the locked cabinet upon completion.
DSS will arrange for reader/scribe services if that is warranted. If testing is to occur in the department office or other room, the reader/scribe will meet the student there. DSS needs five (5) business days prior to testing date to arrange for a reader/scribe.
Information About Final Exam Week Testing :
Due to limited testing space at DSS, room reservation will be by first-come, first-served basis. Scheduling for final exams begins on March 20, 2012 for the Spring 2012 semester. There will be no walk-in testing allowed. During Fall and Spring Semesters testing will be scheduled in 3 hour increments – 8, 11, 2, and 5 to maximize the amount of students who can be accommodated. Be sure to inform your instructor that your test may begin at a different time than the scheduled time for the course.
PLEASE NOTE: We only have TEN rooms available for testing, due to high demand, some testing may need to be done with your professor even if you have taken every other test at DSS!
As always instructors can have students who need academic adjustments for testing utilize conference rooms, nearby classrooms, empty offices for test accommodations.
