Your student, Bobby, arrives a few minutes early to your 7 p.m. evening class; a test is scheduled to begin shortly. He informs you that he is entitled to 1.5x the normal time allotted for the exam. You, however, have not received an ODS letter via email nor a hand delivered one from Bobby. Additionally, the test is scheduled to take the whole 2 hours worth of class time, and you must catch the 9:15 p.m. train home, or be forced to wait until the 10:15 train p.m. What should you do?
- Send Bobby to ODS to see if he can take the test there to receive his extra time.
- Tell Bobby that he must not be telling the truth because no students you know who are registered with the office would forget to make their arrangements for a test ahead of time. Refuse to give him the extra time.
- Explain to Bobby that there is nothing that can be done, at this point, due to the last minute request. Tell him to contact ODS first thing in the morning, so that moving forward in the class, he will be able to receive all of his accommodations, and this won't happen again.
- Inform Bobby that you would be willing to allow him to take a make-up exam within 1-2 days if ODS can accommodate his make-up test, and if you receive an accommodation letter from ODS the following day. Inform Bobby if he wants to choose this option that he must go to speak to ODS the following day before 1 p.m. to ensure that an accommodation letter can be sent to you tomorrow.
