Learning Center Faculty Exam Procedures

The Learning Center is pleased to provide the option of exam accommodation services for Rockhurst University students who are approved by Access Services to receive accommodations. To facilitate the exam process, to maintain confidentiality and test security, and to best serve Rockhurst students and faculty, the following procedures have been established:

  • The student contacts the faculty to arrange to take the test at the Learning Center.
  • The student makes an appointment to take the test at the Learning Center at least 24 hours in advance of the test.
  • The faculty member completes the Exam Instruction Form (following page).
  • The faculty member delivers the exam and the Exam Instruction Form to an LC staff member at least four hours in advance of the test. Exams must be delivered in person to the Learning Center or electronically to learningcenter@rockhurst.edu.


If the exam does not arrive four hours ahead of time, the faculty member will be responsible for administering the exam.
 

  • The exam is administered and monitored by a Learning Center staff member. Monitoring is conducted through closed circuit television.
  • Extended time is based on scheduled class time unless the faculty member states that students in class are provided more or less time to complete the test.
  • An Internet accessible computer is available for computer-based exams.
  • A word processing/print-only computer is available for students whose accommodation includes completing essay tests on a computer rather than in writing. This computer cannot access the Internet, download, or save to external drives.
  • Completed exams are placed in a locked file cabinet for pickup by the faculty member or designated individual. Exams may be accessed only by Learning Center professional staff members, so in-person pickup must occur between 8:30 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 8:30 am and 2:00 p.m. on Fridays.


Questions and comments regarding these procedures should be directed to Kirk Skoglund, Learning Center director, at extension 4813.
