Testing

How to Use Test Accommodations

  • Students meet with a Disability Specialist at the beginning of each semester to create a Letter of Accommodation (LOA) for their test accommodations.
  • We then email a copy of the LOA to each assigned faculty member.
  • Discuss with each faculty member your plan to implement the test accommodations for their course.
  • Log into your DR Student Portal to schedule any in person exams with our testing center.
    • 7 days notice is required for scheduling exams in DR's testing center.
  • On test day, go directly to the main Disability Resources office to take your exam.
  • Note: If a professor and student make arrangements for accommodated testing in the department/classroom or if the exam is completely online, it's not necessary for the student to schedule their exam with our center.

  • Rooms are checked randomly.
