A Friendly Reminder About Exam Scheduling

 

Space is filling up quickly for the next round of midterms. We encourage you to submit your exam scheduling requests as soon as possible. Please note, drop-ins are available to you M-F 9a-4p for questions about this process.

 

Scheduling Instructions for In-Person Exams:

  1. Login to AIM and select the Alternative Testing link (listed under My Accommodations on the left side of the screen).
  2. Select your class from the drop-down menu and click the “Schedule an Exam” button.
  3. Follow the instructions on this page to submit a scheduling request.
  4. Your request will soon be reviewed by a staff member. After review, you will receive an email

either approving your exam request or asking you to contact slds-exam@osu.edu for troubleshooting.

 

Take-at-Home Exams:

If your exam is designed to be taken at home utilizing Carmen or other virtual assessment method, then you will not schedule these exams at SLDS. Instead, you will communicate with your instructors about logistics (e.g. applying extended time in Carmen). We strongly recommend that you confirm that your time allotted, availability window, and due date are correct before starting a Carmen quiz. If the quiz settings are incorrect, please reach out to your instructor. If you are having difficulty contacting your instructor, please contact SLDS.

 

 October is National Disability Employment Awareness Month!

Observed annually in October, National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM) celebrates the contributions of America's workers with disabilities. This celebration works to educate people about the issues that workers with disabilities face and how employers can be more inclusive in their hiring practices.

NDEAM’s theme for this year is: “Disability: Part of the Equity Equation,” which recognizes the vital role that people with disabilities play in creating an inclusive workforce.
