Scheduling Exams with Disability Services

Posted by Woolford, Adam R - January 16, 2014 -
0

Exams are scheduled at Disability Services (DS) in the Academic Support Center (ASC).
Exams must be taken during the hours of 8:30 AM to 5:45 PM Monday through Thursday and 9 AM to 1:45 PM on Fridays. 
Steps to Request Test/Exam to be taken in the ASC

Request to take the exam in the ASC by completing the “Academic Adjustment Testing” form (GREEN FORM) at least 2 business days before exam to ensure that space is available.
Remind the instructor to make a copy of the exam available in the ASC.
Arrive on time for the test. Failure to arrive on time compromises the DS’s testing schedule for that day.
If the student is more than 30 minutes late for the exam, the test will be returned to the instructor and the student will need to reschedule another time to take the exam. The instructor must give DS approval of the new time via email, phone, or in person.
Call the ASC (860.773.1530) 24 hours in advance if you need to cancel or reschedule the testing time.
Students must alert the instructor that they will need to change the time of the test and the instructor must submit their approval via email to a disability services staff person.

Students should schedule their exams on the same date/time as their class.  Exceptions to this requirement may be made due to DS’s inability to have a scribe, reader, or computer available at the requested time or due to a student’s academic schedule not permitting full use of allotted extended time. Students needing extended time should determine their start time to ensure that exams are completed by 5:45 PM, Monday through Thursday and by 1:45 PM on Fridays.
Exams are taken in one sitting unless an instructor has made prior arrangements with the DS to divide the exam into sections
Students approved for additional test accommodations, such as scribes, readers, computers, and/or other adaptive technology, will need to request these accommodations with 7 days advance notice when they schedule their exams.

The DS office adheres to the College’s policy on academic honesty and integrity. If the DS office believes that a violation has occurred, the student’s professor will be notified.

Faculty and Staff Information

Faculty and Staff Information
While working at Tunxis Community College you may encounter students with various types of disabilities. Students with learning, health, sensory, physical, psychological, or temporary disabilities are eligible to receive services through Disabilities Services (DS). Students who require disability-related academic adjustments should be working with DS to receive appropriate academic adjustments. Some students may not be aware of our office and should be referred if they approach you for academic adjustments.
How do students receive academic adjustments from Disabilities Services?
In order for students to receive adjustments, they must provide documentation of their disability from a qualified health care professional to the DS office. They then must meet with a Learning Disability Specialist to establish appropriate academic adjustments. Once the appropriate adjustments have been determined, the students should give instructors a Learning Profile letter that details the approved adjustments. This letter explains the types of adjustments deemed appropriate for that student.
What types of adjustments does DS Provide?
Examples of academic adjustments that may be provided to students include but are not limited to extended time on exams, books in alternate format, large print or electronic format of in-class handouts, copies of notes, permission to audio record lectures, Sign language interpreters, and accessible furniture. Students are requested to begin the process of requesting academic adjustments well before the semester starts as some adjustments are more time consuming than others (e.g. requesting alternative format of texts).
Test Proctoring Guidelines
When a student has been approved for an academic adjustment such as allowances for extended testing time, a written “Learning Profile” is developed with the Learning Disabilities Specialist. This profile is then available to the student to present to each of his/her instructors. If you have a student that has been granted extended testing time, please read the Test Proctoring Guidelines to familiarize yourself with the process and responsibilities involved.
Students are responsible for communicating this information to their instructors/professors and for discussing academic adjustment arrangements. However, the Learning Disabilities Specialist can assist students through this process and communicate with faculty per student request and with written permission. Learning Profiles are available on a semester-basis and are updated each semester per student request.
Learning Strategies
Several staff members in the Academic Support Center provide one-on-one learning strategy sessions in areas such as notetaking, reducing test anxiety, math skills, memory skills, and reading and writing at the college level. Students may request an appointment with a learning strategy specialist by contacting the Academic Support Center.
Please feel free to contact the Disabilities Services office at 860.773.1530 if you have any questions or concerns regarding academic adjustments for students with disabilities.
