Learning Accommodations Testing
The Center for Testing provides testing services for students with disabilities who need specific testing accommodations such as extended testing time, low distraction testing environment, and the use of assistive technology. To qualify for these services, students must have been determined eligible by Disability Services. In order to receive further information about the process for accommodating students with disabilities, please contact David Anderson, Director of Disability Services, at 478-445-5931 in Lanier 130.
To request testing services professors should complete the LEARNING ACCOMMODATIONS TEST SUMMARY FORM and submit it to the Center for Testing. It is important to indicate a date range of 2-3 days for taking the test. Due to the limited space and staff we are not always able to give the student their first choice of time. The student must contact the Center for Testing for an appointment within the date range set by the professor.
The test may be sent to the Center for Testing by e-mail, or campus mail, or it may be delivered by the professor/staff or the student in a sealed envelope. The test will be returned to the professor by the method indicated on the accommodations form.
Tips for filling out form:
- Indicate the length of time you will allow the class to take the test. We will determine the appropriate amount of extended time the student should receive based upon his or her accommodations letter.
- Accommodations allowed for the test must be based on the student's accommodations letter from the Director of Disability Services.
- Any test materials/resources that all class members are permitted to use during the test, such as notes or calculators, should be indicated. Otherwise students will not be allowed to use such materials on the test.
