Scheduling Accommodated Exams

Once your test accommodation requests have been reviewed and approved by Disability Resources (DR), log in to AIM to schedule your exams and quizzes for the semester.

To access this feature, click on the "Alternative Testing" link on the left sidebar of your AIM home screen to take you to the testing screen, where you can schedule exams and quizzes as well as view any previously scheduled reservations..

While the directions to schedule your exams and quizzes on AIM are user-friendly, the Office of Accommodated Services and Testing (OATS) staff is happy to assist you the first time that you try out the process. Just stop by the OATS office in Sears 440 Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. for assistance.

On the testing detail screen, enter the specifics of the exam or quiz you are scheduling.

  • If the drop down is showing the Faculty Authorization Form is not complete, you can still schedule an exam, as long as it the request is being made 5 business days in advance.
  • If the exam date is not within that time frame, immediately send an email to testing@case.edu and ask an OATS staff member to assist with this request.
  • If your exam request is within the 3 business days, the LATE request screen will pop-up. Answer the few questions about your late request and then select submit. The OATS staff member will then have to approve your request.
