Please note: only the instructor listed in Banner can make appointments utilizing this software - graduate students, departmental secretaries, and teaching assistants cannot make appointments due to restrictions from our Student Records office.

  • Step 6 - Contact Information:
    At the beginning of the semester, instructors must go to the "My Info" tab and update their contact information. Be sure to indicate your preferred method of contact and click the green "Save" button when you are finished.

  • Step 7 - Entering Exam Information:
    While you may create reservations at any time during the semester - instructors are highly encouraged to enter their exam information on the "Exams" tab at the start of the semester.  This is information that may already be on your syllabus. You do not need to plan exam dates prior to this submission.
    To enter exam information, click the green "New Exam" button on the top right portion of the "Exams" tab window as shown below:

    This will open a new window to input exam information.

    After you create your first exam, some of this information (bathroom breaks, tardiness, authorized designees, etc.) will autocomplete for any additional exams in this course. At this time, exam information does not "roll over" from semester to semester.

     

  • Step 8 - Student Information and Appointments:
    After exams have been created and student accommodation letters have been received, instructors may begin making appointments. To begin, click on the "Students" tab to see a class roster.

    Instructors can search for a student by scrolling through the list or typing the students first and/or last name in the search box. *Please note that this list is automatically populated by Banner. If you cannot find a student's name, they may have withdrawn from the course - please verify enrollment before contacting the UTC
    Once you have found your student's name, click on them to open the student reservation window.

    This screen will be used to enter accommodations and appointment date(s) and time(s). Accommodations entered into this form will autocomplete for any future reservations for this student for this specific course. If this student is enrolled in more than one course with the same instructor, their initial accommodations must be entered separately as they do not transfer between courses or between semesters.
    Instructors may schedule students for multiple exams at once by using the "+" and "-" symbols shown here:

    Proctoring hours are listed underneath the "When should the student begin their exam?" response box for your convenience.
    Once exams have been entered, instructors should carefully read the agreement statement at the bottom of the window and then click the green "Submit" button.
    To make reservations for additional students, repeat this step until all appointments have been made.

     

  • Step 9 - Reviewing Reservations
    Instructors may review their submitted reservation requests through the "Reservations" tab.
