Faculty accommodated exam submission

The deadline for an exam submission request is 14 working days PRIOR to the anticipated test day.

Considerations

  • Please keep in mind that the space in the Testing Services computer lab is limited which requires that appointments be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis.
  • We can provide a “reduced distraction” testing environment, but not a “distraction free” one.
  • Staff is not available to proctor outside of Testing Services.

Faculty exam submission and responsibilities

  1. Login into your RegisterBlast Professor Module account, to create your accommodated exam submission request. Follow the instructions to attach the exam.
  2. Exam submission request options
    1. Submit all requests and exams at the beginning of the term.
    2. Submit all requests at the beginning of the term, then the exams as they become available.
    3. Submit requests and exams as you are able, but at least 14 business days prior to the first administration date.
      • Enter the standard time allotted for an exam without accommodations. Testing Services will reference the Disability Resource Center database for the student’s approved accommodations and make the appropriate adjustments to the length of the exam.
      • Include the student’s email address and phone number in your request.
      • Remember to refer to Testing Services’ hours of operation prior to submitting an exam request.
  3. Inform your student(s)
    1. Their exam will be administered by remote proctoring using RPnow only, in the Testing Services computer lab only, or they have the option to use either.
    2. The student will be contacted by Testing Services to schedule an appointment, after your exam submission is received.
    3. If the student is not contact by Testing Services, instruct him/her to contact Testing Services. Email: acctest@ualr.edu Phone: 501.569.3198
    4. Refer the student(s) to the Disability Resource Center website for additional information.

Appointment scheduling

Faculty members must not schedule appointments. Accommodated appointments are made by Testing Services. Testing Services will contact the student after your accommodated exam submission request has been received.

Other testing options

  1. If your class is taught outside of our computer lab hours, you might consider letting your student(s) test during lab hours.
  2. You may permit students to use Remote Proctor Now.
    • This option allows students to test in the convenience of their own homes, any time, day or night.
    • RPnow requires that a student have an internet connection, webcam, and microphone.
    • Security monitoring is provided as well as online and phone support, 24/7.
    • RPnow is compatible with many different online course delivery systems such as: MyAccountingLab, MyMathLab, MyPsychLab, Blackboard, Pearson MyLab, Cengage, Wiley, McGraw Hill Connect, and any LTI (Learning Tools Interoperability) platform.
    • Students testing remotely must not make an appointment in RegisterBlast (the online appointment scheduler). RegisterBlast appointments are for students testing within the computer lab.
  3. Students may test within your department or college.

Testing within your department or college

There may be situations where it is preferable or necessary to administer exams within your department. These include:

  1. Exams that are not paper/pencil or online (such as ASL, oral exams, piano, lab).
  2. Specialized software is needed for the exam.
  3. The professor needs to be physically available during the exam.
  4. The course is off campus (such as Bowen or Benton).
  5. Testing Services does not have space available at the needed time.

If this is the case, please follow the procedure for Accommodated Exams in Academic Departments.

An inclusive approach

There is a more inclusive approach for students to demonstrate their mastery of the course material than just utilizing exams. This approach has the benefit of not having to set-up a separate testing situation for students with disabilities. Let the DRC know if you would like to discuss these options further, or if you would like to make such changes to your course design.
