Testing Online ESL Students

This policy applies only where an instructor requires a timed test as part of a course and the course includes one or more students for whom English is a Second Language (that is, students whose mother tongue is not English).

ESL students will be given time and a half, also known as 50% additional time, to complete all in-class timed exercises. For example, if a test is timed for 30 minutes, then ESL students should be allowed 45 minutes to complete the test.

Instructors will apply this policy only upon notice or confirmation from Holy Apostles’ administration that one or more students are ESL students.
