FAQs

In what circumstances may Testing Services be requested?

If a student is absent from class the day of the test and the Instructor is not able to administer a make-up test the Instructor may request proctoring by Testing Services.  Requests are not for snow days, faculty absence, or class cancellations.  Students with authorization for testing accommodations may take all tests with Testing Services.

How does faculty arrange to have an exam proctored in Testing Services?

Submit a Testing Services Request Form and the test to Testing Services in-person, online, or via email.  Printed request forms are available in Testing Services and may also be found HERE.  Be sure to complete all fields on the request form.  Students will only be allowed the time and materials indicated on the form.

  • An appointment is required for those testing with accommodations.
  • A Testing Services Request Form must be submitted by the instructor for each student’s test. Testing Services must have the completed form with the exam or the student will not be able to take it.

How will I get the completed exam back?

This is to be indicated on the request form.  Instructors may choose for completed tests to be picked up by the instructor in Room 128C, delivered by the student in a sealed envelope to a location designated by the instructor, or scanned and emailed to instructor’s MWCC email by Testing Services staff.

What if the student is testing with accommodations?

If a student has Disclosure Letter form signed by the instructor and Coordinator of Disabilities Services, they must schedule an appointment with Testing Services to test with the appropriate accommodations.  Appointments with accommodations will only be scheduled if Testing Services has received a request form from the instructor.  The instructor must submit the test at least 5 hours ahead of the appointment.
