I was informed that my
time-based accommodations have been built into my assessment duration.
What does this mean?
This semester, many instructors have opted to increase the available time to complete timed assessments for all students. For example, according to the assessment regulations within the Faculty of Science, students in Science Departments must be allowed at least double time plus 30 minutes from the starting time for completion of the exam.
Applying principles of Universal Design for Learning, such as increasing the exam completion time for all, ensures access to course content for most learners, thereby reducing the need for specific time accommodations. If you have any questions, please contact the OSD Exam Centre.
