Facilitating Accommodations in the Classroom

Everyone at Purdue University shares the responsibility of making our campus equitable and accessible for all Boilermakers. When it comes to accommodated testing, it is the responsibility of students to request accommodations and the responsibility of instructors to fulfill them. The Disability Resource Center and Purdue Testing Services are a resource for instructors during this process, but given the substantial demand on these departments, it is recommended that instructors be proactive in preparing to implement accommodations independently. Here are a few resources to help manage exam accessibility inside your classroom.
