Taking Your Exam/Quizzes

  • Punctuality is essential! You are expected to arrive in Exam Services at the designated time on the Exam/Quiz schedule sheet. Be prepared to begin all exams with the necessary materials exactly at your scheduled time. Our staff scheduling and testing room reservations are set by need.  Variation from the schedule may cause undue disturbance and disruption to your and/or others exam/quiz accommodations.  You would not be late for an exam or quiz in class; the same courtesy applies at Exam Services.  If your exam/quiz is being picked up at the class or from the instructor, your allowable time starts when the exam/quiz arrives at Exam Services.  Do not assume we are picking-up your exam/quiz from the class and it will be arriving at Exam Services later than the scheduled time. 
  • If you arrive less than 30 minutes late for your exam/quiz, you may take the exam/quiz, however your allowable time to take the exam/quiz starts at your originally scheduled time. If you have not arrived at Exam Services within 30 minutes of the scheduled time (according to the Exam Services clock), your exam/quiz will be returned to the instructor.  It is then your responsibility to request a make-up exam/quiz from your instructor.   The instructor is not required to grant a make-up exam/quiz due to tardiness.
  • You will be allowed to use only the amount of time endorsed by your agreement with our Director, Associate Director or Accommodations Counselor.
  • You will be allowed to use only the items your instructor has approved in writing for use on the exam/quiz.  You are to supply ALL necessary exam/quiz materials including:  blue book, calculators, pencils, scantrons, etc.
  • No personal items are allowed in the testing rooms with the exception of medications, drinks or snacks that are subject to proctor’s approval.
  • A proctor will enter your testing area from time to time.  You are allowed to wear ear plugs or ear muffs to assist in distraction limitation. These are available from Exam Services.   Breaks and trips to the restroom may be monitored by the DS staff
  • You are responsible for following instructions on the exam/quiz and will assume any penalties that may result from misunderstandings and misinterpretations.
  • Students suspected of cheating will need to meet with a Disability Services staff member and the student may be required to surrender his/her exam/quiz and the instructor will be notified.
