If you have a student with a disability in your class who is approved for additional time and/or no points taking off for spelling, it is important to know that these DO NOT apply to take home exams.  Typically take-home exams have enough time built in to allow the student what they need and if they are allowed to use a computer, then they can use spell check and should be held to the same standard as other students for their work.

If at any time you have questions about this or any other accommodation, please do not hesitate to contact DSS. We are always happy to help.
