Testing Accommodations Please keep in mind that the Disability Resource Center testing room has very limited space for students to take exams.
If you have a student who has the accommodation of extended time and you are able to provide it in your classroom or your office, please feel free to offer that to the student.
Each student who has extended test time on his or her VISA (Verified Individualized Services and Accommodations) has been reminded that space is limited and it is his or her responsibility to request a test time in the testing room.
In order to ensure exam integrity, we have developed an accommodation Form. Please complete this form with every exam.
The TAF has the following components:
Thank you for your cooperation in providing equal opportunity education to our students with disabilities.
Please do not hesitate to contact the coordinator of the Disability Resource Center at 610-902-8572 with any questions.
Faculty Disagreements Regarding Appropriate Academic Adjustments / Accommodations
If a faculty member has a concern about an academic adjustment recommended as appropriate for a particular student, the instructor should contact the coordinator of the Disability Resource Center immediately.
If the instructor disagrees with the recommended accommodation, and in conjunction with the coordinator cannot identify an acceptable alternative that provides the student with equal opportunity to participate in the class, the instructor and coordinator should consult with the chair of the department as soon as possible to resolve the disagreement.
If this effort is not successful, within five days the instructor should contact the dean of academic affairs who will review the matter and issue a final decision. The instructor is expected to provide the recommended academic adjustment until the matter is resolved.
