Cal Poly Pomona welcomes and supports students with disabilities. Nearly 300 students (over 3000 exams & 520 different professors!) utilized accommodated testing services through DRC during the 2011-12 academic year.
Test Accommodations serve to ensure that the student has an equitable opportunity to demonstrate their competency of the exam material with minimal interference from the disability. They serve to “level the playing field”. Without accommodations, the test may not accurately reflect the student’s knowledge or skills.
An accommodation should not fundamentally alter the essential elements or core objectives of the course. Faculty are encouraged to contact DRC if they have any questions or concerns about a student’s test accommodations.
