UW Oshkosh Faculty & Staff
When should I refer a student to Project Success?
How will I know if a Project Success student is in my class?
What is the faculty notification form?
What should I do if I have a concern about an accommodation request?
How do I work with the student to arrange accommodations?
The Project Success office asks students to fill out a Request for Test Accommodations form, often called a blue sheet, for every test or quiz that will take place within the Project Success office. The blue sheet serves as a written agreement between the instructor and student detailing the date, time, and additional testing aids allowed for each exam. The blue sheet also gives the Project Success office information pertaining to exam pick-up and return.
When a note-taker is requested for a course, the student will communicate directly with the Project Success office, and a staff member will communicate with the course instructor to procure a note-taker in a confidential and efficient manor.
Additional accommodations including electronic textbooks must be arranged by the student. If you have any questions or concerns about accommodation arrangement or management, please call or email the Project Success office.
What is a blue sheet?
There is a receipt printed at the bottom of each blue sheet that instructors can retain for their own records to serve as a reminder when an exam must be dropped off or ready to pick up. We encourage students to fill out the receipt for each blue sheet, using only initials or a first name. Instructors who retain a copy of the receipt should be sure to keep them in a secure area of their office to maintain confidentiality of student information.
What is the process for finding a note-taker?
How are exams stored and monitored within the Project Success office?
All finished exams are turned back into the Program Assistant and the student receives their ID back. All official start and end times, along with the signature of the staff member who took in the completed exam are included in the envelope that is returned to the course instructors. Exams are locked up until they are either picked up by the course instructor or returned to the department office. The student exam runners are restricted from coming in contact with any exams for the courses that they are currently enrolled in, and will receive signatures from each individual who takes the exams (other than the instructors) when returned to the department office. Past blue sheets are kept in the student’s file for the following academic year.
What is the best way to monitor or track the students in my course who are in Project Success?
What is the best way to set up accommodations for in class quizzes or unannounced quizzes?
It is also possible to make arrangements for students to take unannounced (pop) quizzes int he Project Success office, without giving the student any unfair advantage or information about the quiz. These situations are held on a case-by-case basis, so please call or email to speak with a staff member.
