Time allowed to complete an exam once started:

  •  Midterm and/or unit exams and quizzes shall not exceed 75 minutes,
  •  Final exams are not to exceed 120 minutes.

These limits will need to be enforced using the exam delivery software. In the case of Canvas exams, the test option “Set Timer” should be set to 75 minutes or less and the “Auto Submit” option should be set to “on”. Faculty using the Testing Center to administer written (pencil and paper) exams for distance/off-campus education sections (XW,XE, etc.) will also need to adhere to the time restrictions noted above.

Students needing additional time as verified by Student Accessibility Services (SAS) staff should be accommodated through the SDR office by using the Exam Accommodation Referral Form. (Note: The Canvas test options allow for the inclusion of “Test Availability Exceptions” that make it possible to provide these students with additional time.)
