Online Tests & Quizzes

Student Accessibility Services does not have access to individual tests and quizzes on Courselink.  In addition, one of the limitations of the software used for Courselink is that it does not provide any functionality to assist in automatically granting extra time to students with disabilities.

It is therefore necessary for the course instructor to manually adjust the time for each student who requires this as an accommodation.  In this situation, SAS is able to confirm the amount of additional time the student requires.

As a solution, some instructors have embraced a universal design perspective.  Using this approach, the amount of time that would normally required to complete the exam is determined.  All students are then given double this amount of time, thereby eliminating the need to provide accommodations on the basis of time.
