Sending Tests

The Office of Disability Services can provide assistance in granting testing accommodations for a student.  This is only one option.  You may find Evening Services scheduled make up exams more convenient.  Sometimes students are allowed to start the test early or stay after class to finish.  Please discuss with the student what works best for both of you.

Wickes 260 has been set up as the new alternative testing site for students eligible for testing services.  The room has 4 computers and can seat 8 people at a time.  The room will have a test proctor.  Students must have your permission and must schedule in advance to use the room.  Courtney Fylling is the testing room administrator.  You can contact her at ext. 7000.


 

INSTRUCTOR TESTING PERMIT/CONTRACT PROCESS

The Alternative Testing Permit/Contracts that you may have received via e-mail is the new process for allowing students who receive testing services with our office site. Once you fill out the contract for that section of a class, it will cover any student in that section for the remainder of the semester.
 
Below are the steps to follow in order to fill out the testing permit/contract for your student(s):
 
1. The student will schedule an exam/test/quiz/etc. through our system at least a week ahead of time.  If you have not received a link, please remind your student it is their responsiblity to start the process for scheduling.

2. You will receive an e-mail with the link for the  Alternative Testing Contract.

3. Fill out the contract. ASAP. The sooner you fill this out, the sooner your student can be scheduled for the exam and we can prepare in our office for the testing slot. (NOTE: There is an option to select you, as the professor, to proctor your own exams. If you choose this option, you are responsible for proctoring ALL exams/tests/quizzes/etc. for the entire semester on your own time while still following accommodations.) 

  • If a student is approved for "private room", the student should be the only person in the room, the room must be free from all sound and disruptions for the entire time. 
  • If a student is approved for "quite" room.   They can be in a room with other students (minimal and not the full class), and the room must be quite without phones, other sounds and people walking around.
  • If the student is approved for either above but require special technology, they should be scheduled in our office.  Some students do better in our testing rooms as set up, so please talk this over with the student.
  • You can proctor all students approved for "Extended Testing Time" only.

If you ever have a question, feel free to contact our Testing Administrator; Courtney Fylling.

4. Within the system, there is a way for you to upload your exam electronically, you can deliver the exam to our office or send it to our e-mail, disability-services@svsu.edu. We would like all of the tests in our office at least one day ahead of the scheduled exam.  This is very important so we are able to meet your deadlines for examination.
