Legacy Portal: Accommodations and Accessibility Options

This article provides information to help you to assist exam-takers who request accommodations.

Accommodation Rules

When setting up an exam-taker account, authorized admins can opt to enable accommodation rules that allow extra time and/or deliver all assessments in non-secure mode on all assessments taken by the exam-taker. 

Note: In the Legacy Portal, there is also an accommodation to enable spell check on all assessments.

Admin Permissions

  • Legacy Portal: You must have admin permissions to manage accommodations; however, if you are a Course admin, you can manage accommodations for the exam-takers who are enrolled in that course.

Accommodation Examples

  • An assessment is set up with a time limit of 1 hour. Exam-takers without the "allow extra time" accommodation must complete it within the specified time limit. An exam-taker with a time-limit accommodation of 150% will have 1-1/2 hours, while an exam-taker with a time-limit accommodation of 200% will have 2 hours. 
  • An assessment is set up without spell check enabled. The feature is unavailable to exam-takers without the spell-check accommodation but is available to exam-takers who have this accommodation.   

Important: Accommodation rules must be assigned before exam-takers download the exam file.

These articles will help you to learn more about setting up accommodation rules for your exam-takers.
