In-Session Assessment (Quiz/Test/Exam) – Faculty

Invigilation of TIMED in-session assessments

The SAAC will resume its function of invigilating all timed assessments that are to be completed within class time as long as a student signs up for it.  We will provide invigilation in the same environment given to the class, online or in-person. All suspicious behaviour will be reported to the teacher.

Student sign-up for TIMED assessments

For student to access their accommodations during a classroom-timed assessment, they will be responsible for signing up with the SAAC by using the AccessAbility Online Module. The deadline to sign-up is 7 days (1 week) prior to the assessment date. Students will be given one chance if they forget to do so within the 7 days as long as it is no later than 5 days prior to the assessment date. The one exception to this is if a student was informed of an assessment giving them less than 7 days to sign-up. In this case, the SAAC will communicate with the teacher to confirm when the date of the evaluation was announced and if it was announced less than 7 days prior to the evaluation, the SAAC and the teacher will collaborate to assure that the sign up process is completed in a timely manner.

Faculty confirmation or modification of assessments

Once you receive an email confirmation of a student’s registration, we kindly ask that you confirm and/or modify the definitions and provide us with the assessment parameters by using the AccessAbility Online Module.  We ask that you do so, at least 3 working days prior to the assessment date.


Online Assessments

For online assessments, the SAAC is unable to add students’ extended time on faculty chosen assessment platforms.  It is important that faculty adjust the assessment start time, end time and duration for each student according to their extra time accommodation as indicated on their accommodation letter and as specified in the AccessAbililty Online Module for each student and assessment.
