The Rock Valley College Testing Center: meeting the special needs of students.
Alternative testing is an appropriate service for many students with special needs. This type of testing allows the student to accurately demonstrate his/her knowledge and achievement as opposed to measuring the impact of a particular disability.
Students who need accommodations must register with the Disability Support Services (DSS) Office and present current and complete documentation. For information on what documentation is required, contact the Disability Support Services Office at (815) 921-2371.
The Testing Center, located in the Student Center (SC) lower level, offers a variety of specialized testing services including: readers, scribes, distraction-free work areas, and assistive technology.
Providing testing services for students with special needs requires the careful scheduling of both our professional staff and our physical space. To that end, the following guidelines have been established.
