Accommodation Requests for DSS Students

 

Testing Accommodations

Spring 2022 Testing Process

DSS will continue with in-person proctoring for DSS students with testing accommodations in the Spring. If testing accommodations are needed for an upcoming exam/quiz, the DSS student must submit a Testing Request in Accommodate 1 week before the in-class exam date to secure a proctoring session through the DSS office. DSS will not be providing virtual proctoring except in rare circumstances determined by the DSS office. Be sure to check your CLU email for any updates or announcements regarding testing. For our policy on proctoring for sick students during COVID-19, click here.  Please review the following points:

  • The DSS student must submit their Daily Health Check form to dsstesting@callutheran.edu before the start time of their scheduled proctoring session in order to be proctored in person.
  • The DSS student must review and agree to DSS’ safety guidelines for in-person proctoring. These guidelines will also be sent to the student’s CLU email for each Testing Request submitted and the DSS student must respond to confirm their agreement.
  • If the DSS student is experiencing COVID-19 related symptoms, has been exposed to COVID-19 or tested positive for COVID-19, they must notify DSS immediately by email or phone to cancel their proctoring session. DSS will work with the student to reschedule their exam. The student should also contact Health Services. For our policy on proctoring for sick students during COVID-19, click here.
  • While in this specific indoor learning space, DSS is following current university policy regarding face masks-all students, regardless of vaccination status, are required to properly wear a face mask (covering the nose and mouth) in all dedicated indoor learning spaces until further notice.
  • If an exam is to be administered via Blackboard/other testing platform, the faculty member will be required to set up the extended test time accommodation parameters in the testing platform as DSS does not have access to set those parameters.

Foreign Language Placement Exams

Foreign Language Placement Exams are taken to assess a student's level of proficiency in a foreign language to determine the appropriate level for placement and/or proficiency of a foreign language.

 

Books in Alternative Format

Effective Friday, August 14, 2020, as part of requesting Books in Alternative Format, DSS students will only be able to submit Books in Alternative Format Requests (now known as “Alternative Format”) within Accommodate. Students will log in to Accommodate to submit an Alternative Format request and also upload proof of purchase to this request. Please review the instructions below on how to submit an Alternative Format Request. Once a student submits an Alternative Format Request, DSS will receive notification of the submission. Please note proof of purchase and semester/term activation are required to fully process each request.

For step by step instructions, please review the documents through the links below

 

Notetaking Accommodation Request 

Note taking requests are submitted through Accommodate. When you activate through Accommodate, if note taking is one of your approved accommodations, you will see an Accessibility Accommodation Request titled  "Classroom Accommodations/Note Taking Services."  Be sure the course or courses you would like to request a note taker for are "checked off!"  After you submit your Semester Activation through Accommodate and after it is reviewed by DSS, a note taker request(s) will be submitted on your behalf for any course which is checked off. 

For information on retrieving your uploaded notes from Accommodate, please view this instructional video. If you add/ drop a class after you have already activated for the current semester/ term, you need to email DSSnotes@callutheran.edu to let us know of the changes.  And, if you decide that you no longer need a note taker for a specific class, contact our office so we can cancel that specific request.

If you have any questions, please contact our office at 805-493-3464 or dssnotes@callutheran.edu
