Exam Proctoring

Instructors:

The DRC Testing Center proctor exams for students with approved documented disabilities. Students approved for test accommodations by a DRC counselor and seeking to receive test accommodations must present (i.e. in person or e-mail) instructors with an official DRC Accommodation Letter.  The Accommodation Letter indicates the student’s approved/prescribed disability-related accommodations, including test accommodations such as extended time, a reader/scribe, etc. Once the instructor has received and reviewed the Accommodation Letter, a signature is needed and returned to the student OR digitally acknowledge in MyDRC. If the letter is signed, the student is responsible for returning the signed Accommodation Letter to the DRC.  Questions regarding the approved test accommodations, should be directed to the DRC counselor listed on the letter.  All approved accommodations for which the instructor disputes, will be permitted during the DRC’s review of the instructor’s questions or concerns and determination of fundamental alteration.

Students must request an exam appointment at least five business days in advance via MyDRC or in-person. A two weeks’ notice is needed for final exams. Please be prepared to receive an email detailing the student’s request to take an exam at the DRC Testing Center. The email will direct you to the Testing Center’s booking system, MyDRC. It is the instructor’s responsibility to deliver exams to the DRC Testing Center within 24 hours of the scheduled exam. Please review our guide on how to submit exams.  Exams appointments must coincide with the same day and time that the class takes the exam unless prior arrangements have been made with the instructor. Please note that the DRC Testing Center must receive written or verbal permission to administer the exam outside the regular class time. If permission has not been received, the DRC Testing Center will make an attempt to receive this permission via email pr phone.
