Memory Aid/Formula Sheet
Memory Aid/Formula Sheet
What is a Memory Aid/Formula Sheet?
Memory aids/formula sheets are testing accommodations to support students who have challenges with memory.
Memory aids give students an equal opportunity to demonstrate their knowledge in a test/exam by lessening the impact of their disability.
The accommodation is not intended to reduce academic requirements or alter the standards by which academic performance is assessed.
A memory aid is typically a double-sided 8 1/2″ by 11″ piece of paper, handwritten or typed in 10 or 12 point font.
It may include diagrams, mind maps, general formulas, acronyms, pictures, etc.
It should be relevant only to the student who created it and will use it.
It should include only the information the student needs to trigger processing and recall of information.
The content of a memory aid are at the instructor’s discretion and should not run contrary to the essential requirements of the course.
Your student must discuss with you the need for a memory aid, and its possible content well in advance of the scheduled date for the class test/exam.
The student then books his or her test/exam.
Your student must compose the draft memory aid and submit it to you for review and any amendment a minimum of 5 business days in advance of the scheduled test/exam.
You must submit the final version of the memory aid with a copy of the test/exam to be written two days in advance of the scheduled test/exam (please note that the timeline for submitting the final memory aid may be different for the Office of the Registrar).
Additional Note: The memory aid should be contained in the envelope with the completed test/exam. If not, you may want to consult with either SAS Tests or the Office of the Registrar.
