FACULTY GUIDELINES FOR FORMULA SHEETS
A formula sheet is a testing accommodation for math and sciences classes. It is designed for students whose disability impacts their ability to retrieve formulas. Please meet with the student to discuss whether this accommodation will be needed for tests in this course. Use of a formula sheet should not compromise any essential course objectives.
If the instructor cannot provide accommodations within the department, the instructor can fill out a Testing Contract by following the link included in the Notification of Accommodation email. The pre-approved formula sheet should accompany each test that is administered by the DRC Testing Accommodations Office. Please contact the testing office at 706-542-7721 or firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
Guidelines for Creating a Formula Sheet
A formula sheet should contain pertinent formulas for the materials to be tested, but is not limited to those formulas. Students are expected to recognize what equations are pertinent to the current course materials and understand the proper use of the information.
The instructor and student can develop the formula sheet together or the student can develop it and submit it to the instructor for approval.
If the student prepares the formula sheet, it is important that the instructor make sure all the pertinent formulas are listed.
