Proctored Testing Services
Students with documented disabilities can arrange to have a proctored test in the Office of Academic Skills as an accommodation.
The OAS offers test proctoring services to ensure the delivery of testing accommodations. Students who have already delivered the Accommodation Letters to their professors may schedule their tests and exams online with the OAS.
Testing Accommodations Policy and Procedures
In order to take your exam in the OAS, the following must be on file at least one week before the day of the exam: 1) current Accommodation Letter for the course; and 2) supporting documentation of disability.
The following are the student’s responsibility regarding the use of proctored exam services:
- Schedule all extended time tests and exams through the online Proctored Test Scheduling Form.
- This online form must be submitted AT LEAST ONE WEEK PRIOR to the scheduled test date.
- Late submission of the online Proctored Test Scheduling Form may result in the re-scheduling of a test or the loss of accommodations for that test.
- All tests and exams (except finals) must be scheduled during regular OAS office hours M-F 8:30-4:30pm.
- The professor will receive an email confirmation of the scheduled test; however it is the student’s responsibility to also remind the professor to email the exam to firstname.lastname@example.org at least one day prior to the test.
- To cancel an test, email email@example.com or call 410-778-7883, if unable to make an test due to an illness, an emergency, or if taking the test in class. The student should also contact the professor immediately. There is no guarantee that the professor will allow a make-up exam. Students are responsible for coordinating the makeup of any missed test or exam with their professor.
- All tests will be taken at the regularly scheduled test time unless the professor agrees to an alternate time.
- Only the professor can authorize a change in the test time.
- Understand that “extended time” does not mean “unlimited time” or “un-timed” testing. There is a start time and a stop time.
- Arrive at the OAS at the designated time on testing day. Students arriving late will have less time to complete the exam. The “stop time” will not change.
- Leave all personal items in the designated area during testing time. No cell phones, iPhones, mp3 etc.are allowed during testing.
- Eat and take care of other personal needs before or after testing time.
- Complete the exam in one sitting.
- Do not talk to or collude with other students during testing time.
- Adhere to time and a half or double time frame.
If a student is suspected of cheating or found in any violation of the Honor Code while taking an exam at OAS Staff will:
- Email the Professor, Associate Dean, and the Honor Board Chair immediately;
- Document and provide evidence of the offense to the professor;
- Suspend all testing privileges in the OAS for the rest of the semester.
