Once an exam has been scheduled with SDS, instructors are requested to assist in the accommodation process in the following ways:
Ensure that an Exam Receipt form is attached to the front of the envelope with the exam, and fully complete the information under ‘Must Be Completed by Instructor'.
Deliver a copy of the exam at least 24 hours prior to the scheduled test/exam.
If adaptive technology (e.g. audio format, enlarged) is required, deliver the test/exam 48 hours prior to the scheduled test/exam
If a student requires the use of text-to-voice technology (e.g. Kurzweil, JAWS, Zoom Text), email the exam file as a Microsoft Word document to the Exam Coordinator in order to avoid the need to scan the exam.
If you are providing audio or video content for an accommodated exam, please review the 'Digital Media Guidelines for Instructors' document to ensure that there are no problems opening and accessing your media files.
Tests and examinations arranged by Student Disability Services are usually written in Student Disability Services, Dillon Hall, Room 117, although other rooms on campus may be used during the final exam period.
Students have sole responsibility for filing their exam schedule with SDS prior to published deadlines for the semester, using the SNAP online exam scheduling system. Students who write tests/exams with Student Disability Services (SDS) will typically write at the same time as the rest of your class. Students who need to reschedule exams for any reason may only do so with your authorization and signature, and it is their responsibility to notify SDS of any schedule changes on a completed Change of Examination Request form, as well as to schedule those changes online with SNAP.
If you have any questions regarding the administration of exam in SDS, feel free to contact the Exam Coordinator (ext 3463) or by email: firstname.lastname@example.org
