Alternate Location Testing Services

Adaptive Technology Lab

West Campus, Room W209j


When approved by the Coordinator of Student Disability Services, students may arrange to take tests in our Adaptive Technology Lab, Room W209j.  The procedure is as follows:

  •  1. Early in the semester, plan the arrangements for testing accommodations with each of your instructors when you give the instructor the "Accommodation Letter."  If your "Accommodation Letter" included Alternate Location for Exams or Adaptive Technology Lab for Exams, follow the procedure below.  In addition, if your instructor is unable to provide extended time for your exams and you need an Alternate Location for Exams, call (203) 857-7192 or email the Coordinator as soon as possible.
  • 2. Fill out and submit to the Testing Center (in W209) the yellow form "REQUEST FOR ALTERNATE LOCATION TEST TAKING"  to request an appointment to take the test.  (The staff, Heather Alexander or Beth Lambert are located in W209j or the Reception area. Forms are available above "Downloadable Forms" or the Reception area in W209).
    • a. Notice of at least one week is needed.
    • b. The test should be completed the week it is scheduled.
    • c. When you schedule your test, be sure to allow time for extended time, if that is your accommodation. Typically, that means one and a half times the amount of time the test is designed to take.
    • d. The Testing Center staff will check the testing schedule and confirm your appointment in person, by phone or email. The test will be scheduled as near to the time of your request as possible, depending on availability of proctor and testing room.
  • 4. When you are given a confirmed test time from the staff you should receive or pick-up the green reservation form entitled "ALTERNATE LOCATION TEST RESERVATION FORM."   Give the reservation form in-person to your instructor (do not put it in a faculty mailbox).   This is your opportunity to inform the instructor of the day and time of the appointment and remind the instructor to deliver the test to room W209j prior to the appointment time. Important note: Tell your instructor to write on the green form any special testing instructions given to the class.  The center follows official exam procedures.  If it is not in writing it will not be allowed!
  •  5. Be on time to room W209j. If you are late, valuable testing time may be lost. If you cannot attend at your scheduled time call ASAP. (Heather Alexander 857-6844 or Beth Lambert 857-7298)
  • 6.  When finished, leave the test with the Testing Center staff.
  • 7. Tell your professor that you have taken the test and that he or she can pick it up.
