Academic Testing for Students with Disabilities

Academic Testing for Students with Disabilities (ATSD)

The Academic Testing for Students with Disabilities office administers in-class academic exams and quizzes with approved testing accommodations for students who are registered with the Office of Disability Services (ODS) at Texas State University.  Texas State University has designated ATSD as the official office to provide testing accommodations for students with disabilities. Our facility offers students enhanced accessibility for course exams and quizzes by providing a reduced distraction testing environment and accessible technology options.  If a student with approved testing accommodations prefers to test in ATSD, the student has that right, even in cases where instructors offer to provide the relevant accommodations for an exam or quiz. 

ATSD Testing System

To schedule an exam or quiz at ATSD, students must submit an online test request using the ATSD Testing System.  Requests for in-class assessments must be submitted at least 48 business hours in advance of the requested scheduled starting time.  Students should submit all assessment requests as soon as syllabi are received in order to avoid missing the 48 business hour deadline.
