Remote Accommodations

As we all work to adapt to our current situation, ODS is working to accommodate students in our remote environment.  We have found that most accommodation needs have not changed, but how we implement them may have.  Below are our most common remote accommodations.

ASL/C-Print

If an ASL Interpreter or C-Print Captioner is needed for your course, you will recieve additional emails from Shonda Jones on coordinating these services for your live lectures, meetings, etc.  The student will need to look at the screen with the video interpreter or live transcription, so they may appear distracted on your video feed. They can ask questions via the interpreter or they may type their questions in the chat. 

Attendance Accommodations

Attendance for live lectures and/or course participation might be impacted by a disability-related need. Instructors who have students needing this typa of accommdation will recieve additional corrospondence from ODS on setting up a Course Attendance Accommodation. Attendance issues related to work, illness, caregiving, etc., are seperate from attendance accommodations. 

Closed Captions

Recorded lectures will be captioned by CTL and REV, but this process takes approximatly 48 hours. Please keep this in mind when recording videos and scheduling quizzes. Any content shown in class (movies, documenteries, TED Talks, etc.) must also be captioned, please contact Shonda Jones if you need assistance. 

Digital Materials

Documents, PowerPoints, and other digital materials should be created using our Accessibility Guidelines.  If you have questions, please contact our Technology Center

Test Accommodations

Tests given via Pilot with time limits will need to have the time limit adjusted according to the Access Plan emailed to you earlier in the semester. Instructions on adjusting time limits for individual users: CTL Instructions for Individual Time Extensions

  • Extra Time - 1.50x - 50% Additional Time: The student is eligible for 50% additional time of what is allowed for the test. For example, if the class is allotted 60 minutes, the student with this accommodation should be allotted 90 minutes.
  • Extra Time - 2.00x - 100% Additional Time: The student is eligible for 100% additional time of what is allowed for the test. For example, if the class is allotted 60 minutes, the student with this accommodation should be allotted 120 minutes.
  • Extra Time - 3.00x - 200% Additional Time: The student is eligible for 200% additional time of what is allowed for the test. For example, if the class is allotted 60 minutes, the student with this accommodation should be allotted 180 minutes.
  • Extra Time - Stop Time (Breaks) - To account for this need, please add 50% additional time of what is allowed for the test. For example, the class is allotted 60 minutes, the student with this accommodation should be allotted 90 minutes. (In the ODS Test Proctoring Center environment we stop the clock as needed for students with this accommodation.)
  • Bathroom Breaks - Video monitoring in Respondus may find that the student leaves the screen during the test.

RESPONDUS Lockdown Browser
Text-to-speech/Read&Write Gold software utilized for print related accommodations is not compatible with Respondus. Please remove the lockdown browser requirement, concerns can be addressed with Sheri Penwell, our Test Proctoring Coordinator.  

If you do not use time limits or Respondus for your tests, you will not need to make any changes for your students with disabilities.
