SAS Faculty Portal
The SAS Faculty Portal provides a convenient ‘one stop shop’ for faculty information for students registered with SAS. When a faculty member logs into the portal, they are able to retrieve accommodation letters for students who have made accommodation requests for each of the courses they are instructing.
Do you have one or more teaching assistants or alternate faculty/instructors who will be responsible for managing accommodations of students in your course? If the answer is ‘yes’ and they also have a Trent staff account from IT, we can manually assign them access to the faculty portal! As the primary course instructor, you will still receive both accommodation & test booking notifications, however simply reply to one of the SAS accommodation notifications with who requires access and to what course / section, and access can be provided
Exam Confidentiality Agreement
Students who write their exam on a different day or at a different time than the rest of their scheduled class may, at the request of their instructor, complete a Confidentiality Agreement Form. By signing this form, the student agrees to not discuss the content of any test/exam with anyone. Further, that the student will not record, copy, or disclose any exam question or answer, in whole or in part, in any form or by any means (orally; in writing; in any electronic device, via social media, or email; or otherwise). Nor will the student attempt to obtain information from other students, regarding the structure or content of the test/exam.
Exam Time Shifting Accommodation Information
Students with disabilities can be approved by SAS for various exam accommodations, including time-shifting of scheduled exams. Due to the nature of the disability, some students can only write one exam per day or write during a specific time of day. (i.e. medication regimen)
A student with an accommodation for no more than one test/exam per day may request that the Professor move one of their test/exams.
To expedite the accommodation process, the Centre for Academic Testing has implemented a procedure whereby we ask the student to request to move the second of the two tests/exams to the following day. The Professor will be notified via email of this change. Similar procedures for time-shifting may occur for time of day shifts (i.e. fatigue related disability, medical conditions)
