Our Services

Here are some of the services provided by the DSPS Testing and Tutorial Center. Below this list, you can view our online tutoring schedule.

Test Proctoring Services

Accommodation for classroom testing provides an equal opportunity for students with verified disabilities to demonstrate mastery of the course objectives and take required course exams or evaluative assignments.

Accommodated Testing Due to COVID-19

For completely online courses, we have asked your instructors to please be flexible and build extra time accommodations into their online quizzes, exams and finals. If you have a need for proctoring an on-campus exam, please reach out to our office during normal business hours and no less then 3 academic days before the exam is scheduled to be given, as to allow for the review of your request. In some cases, accommodations will be met in the classroom and/or in an online environment. Please reach out to us with any questions.

Please check back for winter quarter office hours.

Please refer to your accommodation letter to verify your accommodations. If there are any accommodations you need help accessing virtually, please contact dsstestproctor@deanza.edu for support. It is possible that your instructor is not yet aware of this new policy, if so, please let them know to contact us with any questions they may have.

If you you are a student or faculty member who needs support or has questions regarding accommodations through Canvas or Zoom, please email dsstestproctor@deanza.edu

Note Taking Services

There are several options for obtaining note-taking services, lecture or classroom notes as an approved accommodation, such as recording lectures, instructor copies, classmate copies.
