Student and instructor meet to determine the best way to accommodate exam needs.
If the instructor is unable to provide the accommodations for the student, the instructor and student may arrange exam accommodations through the Disability Services Exam Proctoring Center.
At least seven days prior to each exam date, the student is responsible for submitting a completed Exam Booking Request Form through Clockwork to request to schedule an exam through the Proctoring Center. The request is received by the Exam Proctoring Coordinator and accepted or declined. The instructor and student are notified of the status via Clockwork generated email.
Instructors log in and upload the exam with any specific instructions, via Clockwork. Exams may also be hand delivered to 169A Whitmore or faxed to 413-577-0122, regardless confirmation must occur on Clockwork and exams must be received by the noon the day prior to the exam. Exams cannot be sent via campus mail.
Students who need a distraction reduced environment will be placed in a room with less exam takers than a typical class. Private room accommodations are rare but no student is ever alone. Proctors are always present to ensure the integrity of the examination.
Student takes the exam at the designated date/time and location (typically at the same time as the class or an overlapping time period due to extra time).
