NCTA Webinar: Let's Talk - All for One
1:00pm - 2:00 pm Eastern Time

Presented by: Lindsay Jansen, University of Kentucky
Diana Bidulescu, University of Houston Clear Lake

Let’s talk accommodations and get creative! This session will cover not just one, but two important topics. First participants will be coached on how to meet a variety of testing accommodations- and oh my we know there are A LOT! Testing centers both big and small often struggle with how to meet the needs of test takers, and we all wonder are we doing it right? Let’s put our heads together and through this interactive session learn, grow, and take away information and suggestions on how to meet testing accommodations. Whether you are a big or small testing center, meeting exam accommodations is a must; and we all want to make sure that we offer the best testing environment possible. How do we know that we are creating and maintaining the best possible? Let’s do it together!

In the spirit of doing it together the second portion of this session will address that supporting accessibility is not a one department only job. At University of Houston Clear Lake the Testing Center works closely with Disability Services and IT to accommodate students various testing needs. No space? No problem! During Finals week the Center is open exclusively for students with disability, and the two departments work very closely together to ensure a seamless, no-stress process. Tech needs? We got IT! Join this session to learn tips and tricks that made this possible.
