GUIDELINES FOR TESTING ACCOMMODATIONS

In the event that the individual professor is not able to accommodate a student’s non-standard testing request, the Office of Academic Services (OAS) has a room available for administering tests.  The student and the professor should follow the guidelines stated below

STUDENT RESPONSIBILITIES

 

To schedule an exam, please use our online form, call 401-865-2494, email oastesting@providence.edu or stop by Library 250. All testing accommodations must be approved by your professor.

  • The student must notify the OAS at least two school days prior to the exam date in order to secure a room and proctor.  Students may not be allowed to take exams in the OAS if appropriate notification is not given.  

  • If a computer is needed, the student must notify the OAS when scheduling each exam in order to receive this accommodation.

  • The student is responsible for reminding the instructor that about the exam in the OAS and for reminding the instructor to deliver the exam to the OAS prior to the exam time.

  • If a student is unable to take the exam on the scheduled date/time, the instructor should be contacted directly.  The student should also notify the OAS about any changes in the exam time. If the student fails to show up at the assigned date/time, then the test will be returned to the instructor.

  • Any instances of suspected cheating will be reported directly to the instructor.  In the event cheating behaviors are observed, the exam will be stopped and collected at once.  Cheating may result in the suspension of your privilege to take exams in the OAS.

  • If the student arrives late the day of the test, he/she will not be given additional time at the end of the test period.

 INSTRUCTOR RESPONSIBILITIES

 
  • Instructors are asked to drop off their test the day before it is to be administered.

  • If the Instructor sends the test with the student, it must be placed in a signed/sealed envelope.

  • Instructors must inform the OAS as to how and where the test should be returned.
