Academic Testing Center
Mon - Fri
8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Sat - Sun
We are available for testing Monday through Friday beginning at 8:00 AM. All tests must be completed by 5:00 PM unless other arrangements are made in advance.
The Academic Testing Center (ATC) provides a distraction free testing area for students with the goal of maximizing student performance while maintaining test integrity. In addition to our large testing space where we can accommodate up to 30 students, we have two rooms specifically for students who may need assistive technology, low light, scribes and/or readers.
The mission of the Academic Testing Center is to provide all students who are testing a space where they can maximize their academic abilities. The ATC supports students with testing accommodations such as extended time, distraction free spaces, use of a scribe or a screen reader as well as students who miss in-class exams due to illness or team travel.
Students with testing accommodations are not required to use the ATC for their tests. Where you take your tests is between you and your professor. However, we strongly encourage students with testing accommodations to use the ATC for their tests. The following accommodations are facilitated:
- Extended time
- Alternate, Distraction-Reduced Testing Area
- Screen Readers
- Low Light
- Temporary Physical Disability
Booking a Test
Students schedule their tests through the ClockWork portal within the parameters set by the instructor. Students must book their tests no less than two business days ahead of the test date. Students who wish to book exams on a shorter timeline must come to the ATC and book their test in person while providing written permission from the professor to take the exam on short notice.
The ATC is open Monday through Friday, 7:30 am to 5:00 pm. The first exam period begins at 8:00 am. Given advanced notice of at least one week, we can adjust our closing time to accommodate students who take night classes and are unable to test during our regular business hours. Our goal is to support students with a variety of schedules. See the link below to book a test in ClockWork.
Check In and Testing Procedure
Upon arrival you will be asked to show your student ID. Staff will help you stow all your belongings in a secure locker. This includes all electronic devices, food and water, coats and hats. All testing materials will be given to you by Testing Center staff. This includes scrap paper and writing instruments. Only those things specified by your professor can be brought into the testing room. This may include calculators, formula sheets, notes etc. If your test is computer based, you are free to use one of our computers, or, if your professor permits, your own computer. Testing Center staff have ear plugs and silent timers if you would like to utilize them.
During your test, Testing Center staff will be monitoring the time. Please note that active exam monitoring including the use of video cameras in all testing rooms, and periodic walk-throughs by ATC staff is done at the Testing Center.
