The Disability Support Programs and Services (DSPS) department at Miramar College authorizes appropriate academic accommodations, including Test Proctoring, after thorough review of disability documentation and an extensive interactive process between the student and the DSPS Counselor.
Our Test Proctoring Center provides a distraction reduced environment for students to take their exams. We provide students with disabilities equal access to their testing ability and assist students in accommodating their functional limitations.
Testing accommodations can be provided by either the instructor or the DSPS office.
Fall 2023 testing availability:
Monday - Thursday 8:30am-5:30pm
Proctoring will be provided by appointment only.
The Test Proctoring Center is located in L-103 on the first floor of the LLRC building.
Exams taken within Canvas:
- The student notifies their Professor that they would like to utilize test proctoring accommodations by submitting a copy of their Miramar Authorized Academic Accommodations (AAA) form. An electronic copy of the AAA form is made available to the student by Miramar DSPS.
- The Professor extends the time (based on the accommodations letter) directly in Canvas for the student. Here are the instructions on How to Extend Testing Time in Canvas.
