We understand that this is a confusing and stressful time for everyone regarding how
things will move forward with online classes and accommodations. The Student Disability
Resource Center is working tirelessly to ensure that this transition goes as smoothly
as possible for you, as well as the rest of the Gamecock family.
Although the SDRC is not proctoring exams, students are still being instructed to
request exams though AIM, our accommodations portal.
Faculty with questions regarding accommodations for online testing should contact
our main Alternative Testing account at email@example.com for assistance. This account is monitored by several trained staff who will respond
within 24-48 hours of receiving your message.
If you have received a Faculty Notification Letter with an accommodation for extended
time, please let us know if you need assistance with extending the time on Blackboard.
Students who may not have previously used extended test time may use this accommodation
moving forward as exams are now being given in a new online format.
As a reminder, please understand that the extended time accommodation would be 1.5X
or 2X the amount of time for the class. For example, if you set the test time at 60
minutes, 1.5X would be 90 minutes and 2X would be 120 minutes. The students have been instructed to log out immediately and email both the professor
and the testing coordinator if their time has not been adjusted.
