Exam Accommodations for Online Course Delivery

IMPORTANT: Course delivery is predominately online for the 2020/2021 academic year with some blended delivery for targeted academic programs. Limited on-campus activity will take place, with a focus on hands-on learning and industry training activities. Exam accommodations will only be invigilating in-person exams for tests scheduled to be written on campus.

Accessibility Services is committed to providing academic accommodations, including exam accommodations, to students during this period of online course delivery. The implementation of exam accommodations will, however, look a little bit different for online testing compared to what students are used to. Students are now responsible for some accommodations, such as a creating a reduced distraction test environment and access to ergonomic furniture. Some students may or may not have access to these resources at home, which may or may not interfere with their ability to complete course requirements.

It is important to note that removing all access barriers for online course delivery may not be possible, even with accommodations. If a student believes they cannot complete course requirements because of accessibility reasons, the student is encouraged to contact both their instructor and their Accessibility Services counsellor to determine if additional academic adjustments are possible.
