All Spring Semester 2020 Exams in DRC Testing Center Are Cancelled

Due to state and University guidance related to COVID-19, the Disability Resource Center's Testing Center is canceling all exams scheduled to be administered in the DRC through May 15, 2020. This date coincides with the end of Spring Semester. 

Additionally, no new exams will be scheduled in the DRC until further notice. Exams will need to be provided in the alternative instruction environment of each course. As instructors adjust course content to online and alternative learning formats, we anticipate students will receive more information about potential changes to exam administration. If students have questions about exam administration, they should first ask their instructors for clarification and expectations. After talking to their instructor, students can reach out to their DRC access consultant as necessary. Here are steps students and instructors should take to ensure accessible exams:

  1. Student talks to their instructor and uses resources / technology  available in their course.
  2. If access is not possible using existing course resources / technology in the alternative instruction environment, the student contacts their DRC access consultant to explore remote accommodation possibilities.
  3. If no remote accommodation possibilities exist, then the access consultant works with the instructor regarding alternative assessment possibilities. 

Resources for instructors re. the DRC’s COVID-19 response can be found on the DRC’s What instructors need to know re. COVID-19, accessibility, accommodation, and the DRC page of our website. 

Thank you for your patience throughout this process.
