How to Have the DRC Proctor a Test for Your Students

To access the Faculty Portal, click on this link: Faculty Portal for Student Accommodations

  1. Students provide their instructor with notice of their individual accommodations which have been approved by the DRC. Accommodation emails are initiated by the student through their Poly Portal. Students are encouraged to send their plan as soon as reasonably possible. Occasionally students are approved for accommodations during the quarter. If this causes a concern due to proximity to an upcoming exam, instructors are encouraged to contact our testing department at drctesting@calpoly.edu. NOTE: If you haven't received an accommodation email, please check your SPAM folder.

  2. Instructors will need to complete the Testing Agreement online form to provide the DRC with information about exam parameters. (Instructions for completing the Testing Agreement can be found here.Completion of the agreement allows the DRC to proctor exams on behalf of the instructor. To find the agreement form link, check your email for a DRC accommodation notification, or go directly to the Faculty Portal. Please know that the student’s exam appointment with the DRC testing center cannot be confirmed without completion of the Testing Agreement by faculty.

  3. Only one testing agreement needs to be filled out for each lecture section of a course (it will apply to all students in that section). If you need to copy the agreement from one section to another, you can do so via the Faculty Portal.If you use the copy feature, please make sure you adjust exam times and dates for each section.

  4. For instructions on how to navigate the Faculty Portal, please refer to this document: Instructions for using Faculty Portal

Finally, please note that instructors are not required to use the DRC as a method of administering accommodations for course exams. As long as students receive the appropriate accommodations, instructors can independently administer the exams.

Questions or problems may be addressed to the DRC Testing Coordinator, Debie McArdle, at 756-5796 or dmcardle@calpoly.edu.
