1. In-Class Tests and Midterms
  2. Formally Scheduled Examinations

Instructors and Scheduling & Examination Services (SES) share the responsibility for the provision of test/exam accommodations to students with disabilities at Carleton.

In-Class Tests and Midterms

In-class tests or midterms are those that are conducted within the classroom, or any tests that are NOT administered by Scheduling & Examination Services (SES), regardless of when they are held during the term. Instructors are responsible for providing accommodation for all in-class tests/exams.

McIntyre Exam Centre, operated by SES, is the main resource on campus to assist instructors with in-class test/exam accommodations.  The Exam Centre requires the instructor to submit a booking request at least 14 calendar days prior to an upcoming text or exam, subject to availability and booking criteria. The Exam Centre booking request form can be found in the Notices of examination section in the Ventus Faculty Portal.

Alternatively, Instructors may choose to make their own arrangements.

Formally Scheduled Examinations

Formally scheduled exams are mid-term, final, or deferred final examinations administered by Scheduling & Examination Services (SES) within the dates specified in the Carleton University Undergraduate Calendar. SES is responsible for making accommodation arrangements for all formally scheduled exams.
