Jurisprudence Examination Testing Accommodation

First approved: October 2013

Reviewed: November 2016


The Ontario Human Rights Code requires examination candidates to be provided testing accommodations in accordance with the Code to the point of “undue hardship”. This policy outlines how College staff manages requests for testing accommodations.


Policy

The College will apply its Guidelines for Testing Accommodation for Jurisprudence Examination candidates with a documented disability in accordance with the Ontario Human Rights Code to the point of “undue hardship”.


Process

A candidate who seeks testing accommodation due to a disability must provide a written request no less than six weeks before the Examination according to the process outlined in the Guidelines. College staff will review the application and supporting documentation, and may request additional information before deciding whether this policy can be applied and if reasonable testing accommodations can be provided. Where testing accommodations are to be provided to the candidate, College staff will notify the (lead) invigilator of the examination administration site of the accommodations to be provided for the specific candidate.


Decision Criteria

A candidate’s request for testing accommodations will be accepted if the requirements outlined in the Guidelines are met.


Possible Outcomes

Guidelines are met

The candidate will be provided with reasonable testing accommodations in accordance with the terms of the Ontario Human Rights Code.

Guidelines are not met

The College may request an independent assessment of the candidate’s testing needs if warranted. If the Guidelines are not met, the candidate will not be provided with testing accommodations.
