Special Needs Testing
Specialized Software, Scribes/Readers, Private Rooms
Tests and/or testing instructions may be modified and adapted for students with disabilities. Students who have been approved by a Disability Services counselor for testing accommodations and need to use a private testing room or special software must make an appointment to use the private testing room. We request that students make the appointment at least 3 days in advance. Students who need the private testing room AND a reader/scribe to assist them must call for an appointment more than 3 days in advance. A trained reader/scribe will be scheduled to assist the student. Family or friends may not serve as readers/scribes, only LSC trained individuals are scheduled to perform this service.
Students must obtain a Letter of Accommodation from the Office of Disability Services and submit it to their instructor. The instructor will provide the Testing Center with instructions and testing materials. Students are responsible for contacting the Testing Center for scheduling their appointment and reserving resources.
Many students with special needs require extra time for their tests and take their tests in the Testing Center. No appointment is necessary for students who do not need the private testing room. Instructors will make detailed notes on the testing referral form with complete instructions for the proctors for students that use the Testing Center for their accommodations. No advance notice is needed unless the student’s accommodations allow for a private room and/or a reader/scribe.
