Q: How to get DRES accommodation for homeworks and exams?
We believe that DRES accommodations are important, and we
are happy to facilitate them. In particular, we encourage you to
ask for such accommodations if you need them.
To this end, please email the instructors in the class your LOA
accommodation) from DRES.
Usually, accommodations for exams are done via DRES - you would
need to allocate a slot with DRES for taking the exams.
Accommodations in detail:
These letter usually say "These accommodations are not intended
to substantially alter the nature of the course." However, we
are trying to release the homework solutions in a timely fashion
(i.e., 24 hours after the deadline) so that:
For any accommodations, you have to take the exam with DRES.
You have to allocate a slot to take the exam with DRS. It is
a good idea to do the scheduling two weeks before the
exam. Schedule the exam in time *after* the class had taken
- We do not provide make up assignments.
If you have
DRES accommodation for homework, you can submit your
homework up to 24
hours later. To do so, please email the pdf of your
homework to the appropriate TA. We expect people to use this
late submission rarely,
on need basis, as stated in such LOAs. No submission would be
accepted once the solutions to the homeworks are released.
- it helps students with writing the next homework, by providing
a detailed solutions,
- hopefully have students look at the solutions while they
are still interested in the homework,
- help the students prepare to the midterm (if the homework
due date is before the midterm).
