Testing Accommodations

Overview

Testing accommodations are determined on a class-by-class basis and is dependent upon the nature of each course and the method of assessment as it relates to the student's documented disability. Testing accommodations may include but are not limited to:

  • Extended time;
  • A reduced distraction environment or private room separate from the class;
  • Use of assistive technology such as a computer or speech-to-text software;
  • Readers and/or scribes.

Students will take exams at the scheduled time of the course unless they have made alternate arrangements with their faculty member. If the faculty cannot administer an exam either in class or within the department with the approved accommodations, exams may be administered by the CSD. The CSD is available to proctor exams Monday-Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. If an exam will run beyond 5 p.m., students are advised to make alternate arrangements with their faculty. Exams administered by the CSD will be proctored by CSD staff in person and/or video cameras.

Inclement Weather Notice: When the University closes due to inclement weather, and non-essential employees are sent home, the CSD will close at the time designated by the University.  If the accommodated exam is scheduled to go beyond the University’s closing time, the CSD will contact the student and instructor to determine if the exam can proceed as scheduled or if it needs to be rescheduled for an alternate time.

Contact the student’s Disability Service Professional (DSP) at the CSD, or Jaclyn Moriarty, Accommodations Coordinator, at (860) 486-2020 or csdexams@uconn.edu with any questions regarding this accommodation.

    What do I do if I miss the online scheduling deadline?

    If you miss the deadline for scheduling your exams online, please email csdexams@uconn.edu with the following information as soon as possible:

                    If the above times are different, please explain why:

                    How long does the class have to take the exam:

    The Accommodations Team will respond to your email request in the order that it is received. Please note that late requests are not guaranteed due to limited seating space. You should also reach out to your instructor to see if they can provide you your accommodations for this exam.

    I am approved for several exam accommodations. Does this mean I will take all of my exams at the CSD?

    No. At the beginning of each semester, students should discuss his/her approved exam accommodations with their faculty to determine where exams will be administered. Whenever possible, students should take their exams in class with the approved accommodations. However, if the instructor cannot administer the exam either in class or within the department with the approved accommodations, exams may be administered at the CSD Monday – Friday between the hours of 8 a.m. – 5 p.m.

    I have another class right after a scheduled exam. Can I take my exam at a different time so I don’t miss the following class?

    It is CSD policy that students take exams at the scheduled time of the course unless the faculty member approves an alternate time. If you have back-to-back classes and you’re concerned you may miss part or all of the following class due to an exam in the first class, the CSD will work with you and your faculty member to make appropriate arrangements. For example, if you are approved for extended time, and you have an exam in your 9 am class and then a class at 10 a.m., arrangements can be made for you to start the 9 a.m. exam earlier so that you can arrive on time to your next class.

    I am approved to take my exams in a reduced distraction environment – will I have a private testing room?

    The CSD has several testing rooms to accommodate students. A reduced distraction environment does not always mean a private room. Depending on the daily exam schedule, you may be in a room with other students (up to 30). The CSD cannot guarantee a private room unless it is an approved accommodation. However, we have earplugs and noise-canceling headphones available to minimize distractions.

    What happens if I am late to an exam?

    If a student arrives more than 15 minutes late to an exam, the instructor will need to be contacted to receive approval to begin the exam late. The CSD will also need to check if there is still space available in the testing room.

    What happens if I miss my exam at the CSD?

    If you miss or are unable to keep your scheduled exam date/time at the CSD, you will need to contact your instructor and the CSD as soon as possible. It will be up to your instructor as to whether or not you can reschedule your exam to a later time and/or date.

    What am I allowed to bring into an exam room at the CSD?

    You may bring in any materials that are approved for your exam or that are an approved accommodation. Drink containers are permitted and will be checked before entering the testing rooms. You may use CSD ear plugs or noise cancelling headphones upon request. Cell phones and smart watches are not allowed in the testing rooms unless they are an approved accommodation. Food is not allowed in the testing rooms unless it is an approved accommodation.

    Am I allowed to take breaks during my exam?

    You may take a brief break during your exam if it is an approved accommodation. You may not access personal items during the break.

    What if I have to use the restroom during my exams? Am I allowed to leave the exam room?

    Yes. If you need to use the restroom during your exam, please leave your exam at your space in the exam room, and come out to see the Assistant Accommodation Coordinators where you checked in for your exam. Let them know that you need to use the restroom and then check back in with them to let them know you are returning to your exam. Unless breaks are an approved accommodation, your exam time will not be stopped during this time.

    I am approved for extended time to complete my exam. My instructor wants me to start my exam in class and then finish the exam in his/her office if I still need more time. I’m concerned that starting and stopping the exam will be disruptive – what should I do?

    If you are concerned with this type of exam arrangement, please contact your Disability Service Provider at the Center to discuss alternatives. The CSD will work collaboratively with you and your instructors to assure an appropriate environment for your exams.

    My instructor gives a 10-minute quiz at the start of every class and then lectures for the remaining time. I am approved for extended time, so how will I receive this accommodation without missing any of the lectures?

    If possible, you can arrange to take the quiz with your instructor prior to the class. If this is not possible, the CSD can work collaboratively with you and your instructor to make arrangements to take the quiz at an alternate time.

    I have two exams on the same day. Can I reschedule my exams so I only have one per day?

    It is the CSD’s policy that you take your exams at the scheduled time of the course unless an alternate day and/or time is approved by the instructor.

    I submitted an online exam request but need to make a change. What do I do?

    Contact the CSD exam team as soon as possible if you need to make changes to a scheduled exam. The exam team can be reached at (860) 486-2020 or at csdexams@uconn.edu. You may also stop by the Center to speak to an exam team member in person.

    Who do I talk to if I want to request additional testing accommodations other than the ones I am already approved for?

    In order to request additional testing accommodations, please contact your Disability Service Provider at the Center.

    How do I receive extended time for online exams given through Husky CT?

    Approved accommodations apply to all exams including in-person and online exams. Instructors can extend the time you have to complete an exam on HuskyCT. Students are encouraged to communicate with their instructors on a regular basis and in advance of any online exams.

    If my instructor says I can take as long as I want to complete an exam, will the CSD limit my time?

    No. If an instructor allows the class unlimited time to complete an exam (within reason), the CSD will comply. Please note, however, that the CSD is open Monday - Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., so exams will be stopped at 5:00 p.m. unless alternate arrangements are made in advance.

    What happens if I have a question about my exam while I am taking it the CSD?

    The CSD is not authorized to answer any questions related to the content, meaning information, wording of questions, etc. We will make every effort to contact your instructor during the exam. If we cannot contact your instructor, we can provide you with paper to write down your question and place it with your exam.

    What if my accommodations require a reader and/or scribe?

    Readers are only allowed to read exactly what is printed on the exam and cannot define or answer any questions. You may ask them to repeat material whenever necessary. Scribes are only allowed to write down what you have instructed them to write. You can review and edit anything written by the scribe at any time.
