Welcome to The Instructional Testing Center

Located in Estrella Hall South room ESTS130.                                          

The Instructional Testing Center assists faculty with the administration of:                   

  • Make-up exams: Only for those students who have missed an in-class test date. No re-testing or additional testing will be accepted.
  • Proctored exams: Only for online and hybrid courses. No re-testing or additional testing will be accepted.

Exams are not administered one hour prior to the closing hour of operation (e.g., no exams start later than 6:00 p.m. M-Th or 3:00 p.m. Fridays).


Exam submissions for Make-up and Online/hybrid courses:

Faculty must choose Option 1 or Option 2 :

  • Option 1 - PDF method:  Download the "Proctored Request Form" located on the top right side of the page. For internet browsers: Edge, Chrome and Safari, the form will upload as a fillable method. For internet browsers such as Firefox, download and open in Adobe Acrobat DC for fillable method.

Note, Online/hybrid course:

Before administration of proctored exam(s), faculty will have already arranged all course testing dates with the Instructional Testing Center with enough time in advance before semester begins; this is for room location and reservation purposes. The testing technician will then reply to faculty with a confirmation email of date(s) and room location as soon as they become available and reserved.
