Accommodated Testing

(PLEASE NOTE: AS OF TUESDAY, JANUARY 2ND, 2024, CLASSROOM TESTING WILL BECOME ACCOMMODATED TESTING ONLY. PLEASE READ INFO BELOW.)

Taking a Test with Approved Accommodations: Procedure for Students

1. After speaking with your professor(s) log into Accommodate: https://uwosh-accommodate.symplicity.com/ using your UWO NetID and password.

2. Fill out the information needed in Accommodate completely, making sure to do the following:

  • Choose either Oshkosh or Fox Cities for the campus closest to you. (PLEASE NOTE – the Oshkosh location has changed to the lower level of Polk Library, room 002, for all students! No tests are done in Project Success on the Oshkosh campus anymore. ALL STUDENTS go to Polk 002 – Accommodated Testing.)
  • Choose the accommodations that you WISH to use, not all the ones you are approved to use (you do not have to use all your accommodations for all your tests. However, you can’t use accommodations for which you are not approved.)

3. YOU MUST BOOK A SEAT TO TEST AT LEAST 72 HOURS PRIOR TO THE TEST DATE AND TIME. Failure to do so will result in not being able to take the test at that time.

4. Completed exams are scanned and sent back to your instructor within 48 business hours.

Helpful Hints:

  • You may, and are encouraged to, book all tests for the entire semester as early as you can.
  • Note the days, times (and locations) of your tests in your personal planner or time management app.
  • Need to cancel a scheduled testing appointment?  No problem!  Just log into Accommodate and cancel the appointment.
    • If it is less than 24 hours until your appointment, you cannot cancel in Accommodate.  Please call 920-424-1432 or email oshtesting@uwosh.edu and let us know your name, the date and time and course that you wish to cancel your appointment for.
  • Do you need to change your testing time?  Please email your instructor and cc oshtesting@uwosh.edu requesting a new date and time.  Be sure to include your name, the class, and the new date and time you would like to take the test.  Once your instructor approves the change, we will change your appointment.

 

If you are trying to book a seat and you get “none available”:

  • Check your date and time — are you requesting an appointment when Accommodated testing isn’t open?  Or an appointment that will last until after they close?
  • Please try expanding your search for dates and/or times
  • Have you completed your semester request for your accommodations?
  • or Call 920-424-0073 for the Oshkosh Campus or 920-832-2672 for the Fox Cities Campus

Submitting a Test for a Student with Accommodations: Procedure for Faculty

1. After speaking to your student and receiving an Accommodate Testing request email from them, log into Accommodate: https://uwosh-accommodate.symplicity.com/ using your UWO NetID and password.

2. Fill out the information needed in Accommodate completely, making sure to do the following:

  • Note if the test must be taken at the same time as class is held, or if the student has a range of days and/or times to take the test.
  • Note if the student is allowed certain materials (for example, if you’re allowing open notes for the whole class.)

3. Upload the exam (and Scantron or Akindi form, if applicable) to Accommodate AT LEAST 48 HOURS PRIOR TO THE TEST DATE AND TIME. Failure to provide Scantrons/Akindi forms or upload tests within this time frame will result in the student not being able to take the test at that time.

Helpful Hints:

  • Testing Services and Fox Cities library do not have Scantrons/Akindi forms on hand at our facilities – those must be uploaded into Accommodate with the test.

  •  There are no more drop boxes or couriers on the Oshkosh campus – everything will be done through Accommodate.
  • No tests are done in Project Success on the Oshkosh campus anymore. ALL STUDENTS go to Polk 002 – Accommodated Testing.
  • If you are having trouble with Accommodate, please call 920-424-0073 or email oshtesting@uwosh.edu for the Oshkosh campus, Or 920-832-2672 for the Fox Cities Campus
  • If plans change, the student can cancel their appointment up to 24 hours prior to said appointment.  If it is within 24 hours, please have the student call or email to cancel appointment (instructions are above.)
  • If the student needs to change their scheduled time, they should email the instructor and cc oshtesting@uwosh.edu, asking the professor if it is permissible to change the date and/or time.  If and when you approve it, Accommodated Testing staff will make the necessary changes.
