Classroom Testing

All testing requires that students present photo identification.  (Student ID Card, driver's license or passport are valid forms of ID)

The Learning Commons Testing Services is available for classroom testing, make-up exams, placement assessment, standardized testing and credit by exam such as CLEP. Testing Services also supports students who qualify under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

Testing Services is utilized by instructors who prefer that their exams be administered outside of the classroom in a safe, secure and supervised lab environment. Exams and quizzes are submitted in advance by the teacher, who will designate a time frame the test will be open and if any materials will be allowed.

Those who experience test anxiety often find that a lab setting relieves some of the tension associated with taking tests. The quiet, comfortable atmosphere away from the classroom and the ability to prepare beforehand using resources conveniently located in the Math lab, the Reading and Writing Center (RAWC) and Tutoring Services encourages confidence and better concentration.

ACM Testing Services is devoted to student success and offering a safe and distraction free environment for achieving academic excellence.
