LAC Test Taking Guidelines
The LAC only proctors exams/quizzes for Xavier students who are registered with Disability Services and are taking Xavier courses. These guidelines must be followed in order to take an exam/quiz in the LAC.
All academic policies are in effect at the LAC. If there is any academic dishonesty, or suspicion of academic dishonesty, the exam/quiz will be confiscated immediately and returned to the professor with an explanatory note. Also, your exam/quiz privileges at the LAC will be suspended.
Prior to Scheduling Your Exams / Quizzes in the LAC
Meet with your professors to sign the Student/Faculty Accommodations Agreement. To address questions you may have during the exam/quiz, ask the instructor to include contact information with the exam/quiz so that the LAC can attempt to contact him/her on your behalf.
Your professor should indicate the following on a note with the exam/quiz:
- The day and time the professor expects you to take the exam/quiz.
- If a calculator, notes, or books are allowed during the exam/quiz.
- How the professor would like the exam/quiz returned (campus mail, fax, scanned/emailed or professor pick up).
- Inform your instructor that pop quizzes can be arranged by contacting the LAC.
