How Instructors are Notified about a Student Disability
Disability Specialists will email you notifying you of a student’s approved accommodations and the email will be copied to the student. It is a student’s decision and responsibility whether or not to disclose a disability, but academic accommodations will not be provided through the disability resources offices without the instructor having been notified.
Fall 2020 CLASS OFFICE/GROVES LAB TESTING POLICIES AND PROCEDURES
In-Person Exams in the Groves Lab
- If you have an in-person exam/quiz, students with testing accommodations can schedule their exam/quiz in the Groves Lab testing center.
- Complete the testing contract (instructions below) to ensure we know the parameters of the exam/quiz.
- Please send us an electronic version of your exam as applicable so we can print a copy for the student.
- For physical exams, we will send you a scanned copy of the completed exam via email.
- If you are hosting a timed exam/quiz on Moodle, please update the time allotted for students with extra time as a testing accommodation. Your Liaison for Computing (LFC) can assist with this.
Please review the official CLASS Office/Groves Lab Testing Policies and Procedures for more information about the testing process.
If exam accommodations have been approved for a student, the notification letter you receive will have a link to a testing contract you should complete to let us know how tests will be received, what materials are allowed during testing, and how tests should be returned to you when finished. You will only need to complete one testing contract per course section, even if there are multiple students with disabilities and multiple exams in the course.
It is important for you to complete the testing contract as soon as possible after you receive the accommodation notification email.
If a student requests to take a test in the Groves Lab, you will receive an email with a link for uploading the exam. If you prefer, you may still drop off exams in Lindell 216 or email them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please do not hesitate to contact the CLASS Office if you have any questions about this process. We appreciate the ways you partner with us to provide equal opportunities for Augsburg students with disabilities.

Taking Tests in the Groves Lab (CLASS)
- On the day of the test, students come to the Groves Accommodations Lab (Lindell 216) instead of going to the classroom (unless the instructor indicates that the student needs to attend part of the class period).
- Because the Groves Lab opens at 8:00, we have students schedule morning exams no earlier than 8:30 to give us time to get the testing area prepared.
- Students leave books, notes, book bags, phones, smartwatches, and purses outside of the testing rooms unless the instructor indicates on the Testing Contract that the student may use certain items during the test. Proctors check on the students periodically during testing.
- If a student is caught violating the University-wide academic honesty policies, testing is stopped immediately, and the instructor is notified of the circumstances.
- Usually, students complete each test in one block of time; however, short breaks are allowed under the proctor’s supervision.
- If necessary, students may ask the instructor’s permission to schedule a test earlier or later in the day in order to allow time to finish the test without conflicting with another class.
- Completed tests can be returned via email or you can pick them up in Lindell 216. Tests are not returned through campus mail or delivered to individual offices.
