Submitting Accommodative Exams

Dear ASD, Faculty, and Staff,

Testing Services has an online test submission process, designed to add convenience to all faculty and staff needing to submit exams for their accommodative students. With this system, instructors have the ability to submit exams via CHI Tester. CHI allows you to submit your exams online and instantly grade scantron exams, as well as view your students’ scores online, all without stepping foot in our office. Follow the link to CHI Tester, and familiarize yourself with its processes by logging in using your UV Link username and password: https://chitester.uvu.edu/. Be sure to always use Firefox when accessing this website.

A few specifics, regarding submitting exams for accommodative students:

  1. If you are already using the CTC for your entire class, you will not need to submit an additional exam for your accommodative student. Be aware however, your accommodative student will be required to test during the dates that the exam is available to your entire class. We advise submitting another exam if your accommodative student intends to test outside the regular classes testing window.
  2. When submitting exams for accommodative students, be sure to indicate it as a 'Non-Standard' exam. You will then be given the option to label it as "Accommodative".
  3. Accommodative exams can be made available for up to 5 days.
  4. When preparing to upload exams, be sure to have your files in Word or PDF format.
  5. You will be given the option to drop exams off to our office, however you will still be required to complete the online submission steps in advance. You will be given the option to specify your delivery option at that time.
  6. All accommodative exams, regardless of the delivery method, must be uploaded or dropped off by noon the business day before the intended start date. This allows our staff time to prepare the material for your student.

Should you have any questions, or need further assistance, please contact our processing staff at 801-863-7095.

Accommodative Guidelines

Testing accommodations can be provided for a student with documented disabilities by the UVU Accessibility Services Department. To coordinate testing arrangements with the Accommodative Testing Center, students and faculty are required to arrange the following:

  1. Exam Notification – Faculty members are encouraged to provide students with sufficient notice of exam dates.
  2. Scheduling – Students are responsible for scheduling an appointment to take their exam at least 24 business hours before the time the test is scheduled to begin. Students must know their class name, course number and teacher’s name.
  3. Exam Drop Off – It is the faculty’s responsibility to have the exam submitted via the online CHI database before the student’s scheduled test time. At the time of submission, faculty must indicate the name of the student and what testing aids are permitted to the student, if any. If the test is available in the Classroom Testing Center for the rest of the class, please have the student indicate that when they call in to schedule their appointment. In order to ensure test security, exams are only allowed to be submitted via the online CHI database.
  4. Fees – Students should be aware that if their test is available to the rest of the class at the Classroom Testing Center and they test on a Fee Day, they will still need to pay the $4.00 fee.
  5. Testing Day – Students should arrive at the Accommodative Testing Center at least 10 minutes before their appointment. Students are not allowed to bring any testing materials into the testing room except testing aids approved by their instructor. After a student has completed an exam, all test materials, testing aids, and scratch papers will be collected. If you are more than 15 minutes late to your appointment, your room reservation may be reassigned and you may be asked to reschedule your appointment.
  6. Return of Completed Exam – Faculty members are required to pick up the completed exam as soon as possible.


  • We have adjusted our priority scheduling model to allow for Online courses, Hybrid courses, and Large sections (100+) to schedule exams 3 weeks prior to the start of the semester on July 31st. Traditional courses will also be able to schedule 2 weeks prior to the start of the semester on August 7th.
  • Instructors over hybrid courses will need to contact ctc@uvu.edu to provide the course CRN so a manual system adjustment can be made to allow early scheduling 3 weeks before the semester.
  • In order to start a test, the office must receive all materials by noon the business day before the start date.
  • Exams cannot start before Fall break or Thanksgiving break and end after the breaks conclude.  All running exams must end before the break starts.
