Testing Center (DRC)
The Testing Center is located on the 2nd floor of the Guerrieri Student Union, Rm 229 and is available to to students with disabilities with approved testing-related accommodations. Students with approved testing accommodations are advised of the following: (1) to discuss the implementation of their testing accommodations and receive approval from faculty prior to utilizing the Testing Center; (2) complete the online test request form at least 3 business days prior to each test/exam/quiz; (3) once the student completes their portion of the online test request form, faculty will receive email notification.
Generally, exams should be scheduled to begin and end during DRC hours of operation (Monday-Friday 8:00 am to 4:30 pm);
Faculty are welcome to accommodate students directly. Generally, the DRC administers exams because faculty prefer the DRC to arrange accommodations. Since the most common accommodations are extended time and an environment somewhat free from frequent distractions, faculty often make arrangements themselves. Many students with disabilities require 50% to 100% time on examinations, as shown in the chart below.
DRC Testing Accommodation Agreement
The Disability Resource Center will begin using AIM to manage student accommodations, appointments, and test proctoring services. In reference to the DRC Testing Center, AIM will streamline the exam scheduling process. For detailed instructions on how to complete the DRC Testing Accommodation Agreement.
When completing the DRC Testing agreement, faculty should answer all questions on the agreement fully. It will provide the Testing Center with the appropriate parameters for different types of assessments in your course.
Note: The agreement will be applied to all of the students in that section registered for testing accommodations. We ask faculty to provide good contact information in the event the student has specific questions or concerns during the test/exam/quiz.
|Total Class Time||Time and One Half (50%)||Double Time (100%)|
|50 minutes||1 hour and 15 minutes||1 hour and 40 minutes|
|75 minutes||1 hour and 52 minutes||2 hours and 30 minutes|
|90 minutes||2 hours and 15 minutes||3 hours|
Upon approval of the student’s request, faculty should send tests to the DRC at least 1 business day in advance of test date. During finals, we ask faculty to send tests 3 business days in advance of the test date due to the high volume of tests during that time.
Tests can be sent to the DRC via e-mail (DRCTestCoordinator@salisbury.edu), via the AIM Portal, fax (410) 543-6088), campus mail, or hand-delivered to the DRC (located on the 2nd floor of the Guerrieri Student Union, Room 229).
The DRC-Testing Center is committed to providing a secure testing environment. All tests are proctored. Tests are secured in a locked office. All students are required to adhere to the Salisbury University’s Policy on Academic Integrity.
