Exam information for instructors

Exam Scheduling

The Disability Center is here to support faculty with accommodated exam administration. However, in order to do so, there are a few policies we have put in place that help us effectively administer exams.

  • Students are expected to submit their exam requests at least 7-days in advance. This allows us to have adequate time for coordinating rooms and proctors as well as any preparations needed.
  • Students who need to take exams during weeks 15 and 16 must submit those requests by 11 p.m. on Nov. 17, 2023.

Exam Administration Hours

  • Fall and spring semesters: During weeks 1–15, exams can be scheduled every 15 minutes between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. Monday–Thursday and must end by 10 .p.m.; Exams on Fridays can be scheduled every 15 minutes between 8 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. and must end by 5 p.m.
  • During finals week (week 16), exams are administered at the following times only: 7:30 a.m., 10 a.m., 12:30 p.m., 3 p.m., 5:30 p.m. and 8 p.m. Monday–Thursday and 7:30 a.m. only on Friday.
  • Summer semesters: Exams can be scheduled every 15 minutes between 8 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. Monday–Friday and must end by 5 p.m.

Exam Administration Details Form

When students have requested to use their accommodations for the semester and have generated their accommodation letters, their instructors will then have the ability to submit their exam administration details. This form is to provide information to the Disability Center on administration details/requirements for accommodated exams being taken through the Disability Center (exam dates/times, allotted times, materials allowed, etc.). It is very helpful for the exams office to have this information beforehand, if possible.

Instructors can submit their exam administration details form by logging into the Instructor Portal and going to the Exam Access section. Instructors can also provide this information by completing the Exam Administration Details Word document and email it to mudcexams@missouri.edu. The exams staff will then enter in the information for you.

Online Exam Administration

If exams are administered online and students still wish to take them using the Disability Center’s testing rooms/proctors, the instructors are still responsible for setting any time limit extensions for those students with extended time accommodations. Learn more about adjusting exam times for online exams.

Students are responsible for bringing their own device to take online exams. The Disability Center does not loan out laptops.
