Use of Podium
May stand behind a podium to present
- The presentation should be scheduled in a room where a podium is available
and the student is allowed to stand behind the podium. This should not affect
Extended time for presentation, not to exceed (25%, 50%, 75%, 100%) of the total
- The student would still be required to present in front of their classmates
or other audience members, unless the faculty member changes this requirement.
It is important to remember the extended time when scheduling the presentations
for the other students. The day this student presents there may need to be fewer
- The student should be graded in the same manner as other students. Expectations
should not increase because of extended time. Extended time is not an advantage,
but an academic adjustment that levels the field for students with disabilities.
Present without audience
Present in front of faculty member only
- The faculty member should set up a time for the student to present to the faculty
member in a private room. The student should have access to the same equipment
that other students would have access to in a traditional classroom setting. The
student’s grade should not be penalized for any aspects that are related
to the approved accommodation.
Provide written presentation to faculty member to be used to support grading
- The faculty member should arrange an appropriate time for the student to give
them the presentation.
- The faculty member should grade the presentation based
on the combined caliber of both the verbal and written material.
