Students with accommodations are asked to register their online final exam and take home assessment requests through myAIMS.
The Accommodated Tests and Exams team in the Office of the Registrar will process the accommodation request and send instructors the accommodation details (e.g. additional time) for application in the online environment.
Students and Faculty can contact firstname.lastname@example.org directly with questions relating to the administration of the extra time accommodations in an online environment.
Please download this instructional PDF for step-by-step instructions on how to add extra time in Quercus.
If you have additional questions related to disability-related accommodations after connecting with them, please reach out to AccessAbility Services.
Break time and writing time are both added as extra time. Students are expected to self-manage their writing time vs. break time. The University has approved this approach during this time.
Multiply the total class writing time by the student’s accommodated extra time. Then add their break time.
If a student raises any accommodation-related concerns that you cannot address for your assessment, please have them get in touch with their Disability Consultant at AccessAbility Services
If a student is reporting a need for an alternate assessment format due to disability-related reasons, please refer the student to AccessAbility for guidance.
A take-home assessment as replacement for a final exam is time limited (between receipt of questions and submission of responses). In the situation of a term assignment where a student has had weeks or months to prepare for it, students with extension accommodatins may request an extension of up to one week from the due date.
Students requesting additional time for a take-home exam should contact their Disability Consultant, or email@example.com to discuss their disability related needs and potential accommodation solutions.
If you have questions related to additional time or extensions, please contact our office at firstname.lastname@example.org or 416-287-7560
