Booking tests and exams
One of the key services the Blundon Centre provides is academic accommodations when students write tests and exams. During the 2005-2006 academic year, for example, the Centre accommodated approximately 1,700 tests and exams.
Procedure for booking tests and exams at the Blundon Centre:
- the student contacts the Blundon Centre at least two weeks before a semester test and one month before a final exam to arrange testing accommodations
- staff at the Centre prepare the Request for Testing Accommodation at the Blundon Centre Form for each test/exam
- the student signs the form and then brings it to their professor to have Section 2 completed. This section has space for professors to add any special instructions (e.g., if calculators or notes are permitted, a number where they may be reached during the exam, etc.). When the professor has completed this section, they should sign the form and keep the yellow copy for themselves
- the student returns the white copy of the form to the Blundon Centre a week before the test/exam is scheduled to be written and keeps the pink copy for themselves
