Tell Us About Your Exam Experience!



In a remote learning environment, we understand that the way exams are being designed and your experience taking them online has changed significantly. We want to hear from you and provide a place where you can share your feedback. If this interests you and you would like to participate, please complete our short OSD Exam Experience Survey.




REMINDER: Signing Up for Exam Accommodations



  1. Check the details of your exam on your syllabus and review your course announcements to verify that individual accommodations apply to the format of your exam.
  2. Register for your exam accommodations 14 days prior to the start date of your assessment using the appropriate exam sign-up form.
  3. Check if you received a confirmation from your instructor or exam administrator stating that your extra-time has been programmed on the testing platform.

    ***ALWAYS verify that your exam accommodations have been programmed correctly, when applicable, even if you do not intend to start your exam right away.
