Faculty and staff on campus play an important role in implementing the appropriate accommodations for students with disabilities and ensuring that our office fulfills our duties correctly and efficiently. Their sensitivity to students with disabilities and their issues is an important aspect to students receiving their appropriate accommodations.
This access statement must be included in all syllabi:
Students with Disabilities: Any student with a documented disability (e.g., physical, sensory, psychological, learning disability, AD/HD, or are a current or prior military service member (with wounded warrior status) who needs to arrange reasonable academic accommodations must contact Disability Resource Services (165 Murphy Library, 608.785.6900) at the beginning of the semester. In addition to registering with Disability Resource Services, it is the student’s responsibility to discuss their needs with the instructor in a timely manner.
DRS offers a space for taking exams, which is a closed-door testing room. We proctor the tests utilizing video cameras and frequent periodic checks visually. We collect the student's book bag, cell phones and provide a restroom break prior to the exam.
DRS will assume no materials are allowed unless the professor provides the details on the Exam Checklist Form that they will attach to the test. (Books, Notes, Calculator, Formulas/Tables, Dictionary, Data Sheet, and Other, or None). DRS will adhere to the cheating penalties in the Eagle Eye (Student Academic Disciplinary Procedure, Section 1403). If cheating occurs while using our services, the test will be confiscated, actions documented and reported to the instructor.
