Faculty Remote Alternative Testing Assistance Form

Students are largely expected to take tests for online courses following the same process as the rest of the class. Canvas, Respondus, and HonorLock all have accessibility features, are compatible with screen readers, and can be adjusted for individual students so the vast majority of accommodations can be provided through these modalities. This allows students and instructors the benefit of not having to arrange separate testing. There are, however, some specific accommodations or situations that may best suited for referral to the DRC for assistance with remote proctoring tests for a student/course. These are very specific and rare circumstances, some examples of which are a student who may need a reader and/or scribe for their test and alternative means are not available or when a student is allowed to test at a different time than the rest of the class AND the instructor is proctoring the class test (because a test on Canvas can be taken any time).
  • Please provide all the courses you would like support with (e.g. NUTR 100).
  • If multiple students please include how many students in which class(es) you may want our support with and we can find the names in MyDRC. We will contact you if we need further clarification.
  • How are tests for this course being provided and/or proctored for the class? Please include any remote proctoring systems being used (Respondus, HonorLock, Zoom, etc.) or testing platforms (Canvas, MathLab, etc.).
  • Please include any specific accommodations or student scenarios you would like more information on how to provide remotely or could benefit from DRC resources.
  • What were your takeaways from that discussion?
