Online Assessment Accommodations

Writing Online - How it Works

  • After you make a booking with ATS, we will contact your instructor to confirm the details of the assessment.
  • ATS will look at the timing details and check if extra time is already built in, or needs to be added.
  • If extra time needs to be added, ATS will make the updates online, or send the information to your instructor to make the updates.
  • Once this is done, you will receive an e-mail from ATS confirming. This e-mail typically comes 1-2 days before your assessment.
  • For online assessments, the accommodations that will be applied are your time-based accommodations (extra time, breaks, time shifting).
  • If you have other accommodations and you're not sure how to access them at home when writing assessments online, please reach out to your Accessibility Advisor at least two weeks before your assessment to discuss.

On-Site Assessment Accommodations

Writing in-person - How it Works

  • For students who wish to write in-person, the Exam Centre is available on an as-needed basis.
  • If you would like to write an assessment in-person, you need to (a) make a booking with ATS by the registration deadline, and (b) contact at least 10 days in advance to request this.

When writing in-person, you will need to:

  • Arrive at least 15 minutes prior to your quiz, test, exam, or online assessment booking to allow time for safety protocols and sign-in.
  • Confirm that you do not meet self-isolation criteria for COVID-19 upon arrival at ATS.
  • Sanitize your hands upon arrival at ATS.
  • Maintain six feet of distance at all times from invigilators, staff, and other students.
  • Wear a mask or face covering at all times, unless you have a medical exemption.
  • Follow directions from invigilators regarding safety protocols.
