Procedures for Instructors

The staff of the Testing Center provides a service to both students and instructors for make-up testing, retesting, and online testing. With the cooperation of our instructors, the Center can offer this service during testing hours. Since the testing center has expanded its role, it is more important than ever that procedures be uniformly followed to maintain the integrity of the testing process and to provide a suitable testing environment.

The Testing Center is not open for testing during non-class days (holidays, vacations, in-service days, etc.).

Please follow the procedures below for academic testing:

  1. Complete the "Proctored Testing" form found in the Faculty Toolbox in Pathway.
  2. Include any information that the testing center specialist and student need to know.
  3. Inform students of the testing hours. If these hours do not suit the student, the student will need to make other arrangements with the instructor.
  4. Instructors with special requests should notify the Testing Center and arrange, in advance, for such requests to be implemented.
