DRES Procedure for Students
The CBTF recognizes the accommodations identified by the Division of Rehabilitation Education Services (DRES) and does its best to accommodate all students.
The CBTF supports the following accommodations:
- extended time for testing (including breaks)
- use of a computer for testing
- a reduced distraction environment for testing
- wheelchair accessible seating
If you have accommodations outside of those listed above, please consult with your instructor about your Letter of Academic Accommodations about the best way for you to test.
Enabling DRES accommodations in the CBTF
If you, as a student, wish to receive accommodations for exams at the CBTF, you should do the following:
- Bring your Letter of Accommodation to the CBTF during hours of operation.
- The proctor will record your accommodation in our scheduling system. This only needs to be done once per semester, and takes effect for all CBTF courses. It is better to do this early, well before your first exam.
- Any reservations made after the accommodation is entered into the system will address those accommodations (for example, extended time or reduced distraction seating).
- Reservations made before the accommodation was entered will need to be removed and re-added to pick up the accommodation.
- The scheduler software will show if an accommodation is in effect.
Once you have logged into a computer, a clock is available on the computer desktop for keeping track of time. Cell phones and other smart devices are not allowed in the CBTF for any reason.
In normal situations, food/drink and bathroom trips are not allowed during CBTF exams. Students are encouraged to eat/drink and visit the restroom before their exams. If you are concerned that this might be a problem, speak with the proctors before you check-in. We will try our best to accommodate your needs.
