By submitting and signing the sign-up form you are acknowledging you have read the policies and procedures and that you understand that any violation of the Honor Code will cause you to lose your testing privileges in the testing center.
Please note: A student request must be scheduled three (3) business days before the date of the class test. A walk-in is not allowed. A business day is defined as any day except Saturday, Sunday, or any day which is a legal holiday. Typically Monday through Friday counts as a business day unless the day is a holiday.
The following are students’ responsibilities when it comes to scheduling exams in the testing center:
- A student requesting to test in the testing center must have an Academic Accommodation plan in place.
- Students should schedule exams at least three business days in advance.
- If the student has more than two tests on the scheduled test day, the student should contact email@example.com to seek assistance with scheduling as soon as this conflict is identified.
- With faculty written permission to firstname.lastname@example.org
Students are required to bring cell phones to the testing center to be able to log in to Blackboard if needed, and the cell phones are then handed over to the proctor until the test is completed. (Occasionally, a student will need their phone with them because it serves a medical purpose e.g. assists a student with monitoring sound on hearing aids).
- Students have a 15-minute grace period.
- The minutes students are late will go towards their extended time.
- You must schedule your own exam. Your instructor may not schedule it for you.
- A student request must be scheduled three (3) business days before the date of the class test. A walk-in is not allowed. A business day is defined as any day except Saturday, Sunday, or any day which is a legal holiday. Typically Monday through Friday counts as a business day unless the day is a holiday.
- Students will receive a confirmation email from the testing center when they have been added to the testing center schedule. The information submitted by the student using the online form appears at the end of the confirmation email. Students are responsible for checking its accuracy.
- Students should contact the testing center via email at email@example.com to cancel any unnecessary testing appointments so that the seat can potentially be used for another student.
- While testing, students must leave all backpacks, pencil/pen cases, phones, watches, fitness tracking devices, coats, jackets, hats (except headwear worn for religious reasons) and all other items with internet/Bluetooth access that are not specifically allowed on each exam with the proctor.
- Students are monitored by a proctor while testing.
- Students are not allowed to communicate with anyone except testing center staff during testing.
- Students are not allowed to remove scratch paper or pages of the exam or quiz from the testing center.
- All permitted note sheets/cards will be collected and delivered to the instructor with the completed test, if the instructor has requested it.
- When a student has questions during a test, the testing center proctor or coordinator will attempt to contact instructor. If that is not possible, the student will be asked to make an assumption and note it on the test.
- Display of misconduct or any failure to comply with Testing Center Policies gives testing center staff the right to collect test materials and inform the instructor. Any instances of academic dishonesty will be reported to the instructor and department chairperson. Other staff members may be notified as deemed necessary on a case-by-case basis. In addition, other consequences may result, including the inability to schedule future tests in the testing center.
