Proctoring Assistance

Exam accommodations may be available through Disability Services in cooperation with the instructor. Please follow the procedures below for obtaining exam-proctoring assistance:

  1. Arrange to meet with your instructor(s) to discuss your disability and exam accommodation arrangements. Contact your professor for all testing arrangements well in advance of each test/quiz.
  2. It is preferred that your professor provide you with the proper exam accommodations within the context of his/her department under their supervision. For example, you may need to ask questions.
  3. If your professor is unable to provide proper exam accommodations, then you may be able to take the exam through Disability Services by completing the following steps:
  4. The Test & Exam Accommodation Arrangements form must be completed and returned to ODS at least 3 days in advance of test date. ODS may not be able to accommodate a student if the TEAA form is returned to us without sufficient notice; however, we will consider these requests on a case-by-case basis.

All exams are scheduled at the same time as the . Exceptions would include back-to-back classes or an evening class which would inhibit the extended time accommodation. Special arrangements will be considered on an individual basis.

Please note the following:

  • Ashby Assessment and Testing Center also functions as a proctored testing space at JMU.
  • It is recommended that Final Exam Testing space be reserved about 2 weeks in advance.
  • Submitting a Test & Exam Accommodation Arrangements form does not guarantee testing accommodations in Disability Services.
  • Telephone calls, e-mails, or verbal requests will not be accepted without the completed Test & Exam Accommodation Arrangements form.
  • You may make multiple copies of the Test & Exam Accommodation Arrangements form to give to your professors if they are unable to provide testing space for you.
