Examination Instructions for Faculty
The Learning Center (TLC) offers a variety of testing venues to meet student and faculty needs. Testing rooms are available for make-up exams, DSPS accommodations, and exams on the computer. To best serve students enrolled in face-to-face classes who need to complete exams in The Learning Center (TLC) and to ensure that TLC continues to provide a secure testing environment, we request that students follow specific testing guidelines and procedures.
Once students have made arrangements with their instructor to take an exam in TLC , the instructor will need to provide TLC with the examination as well as any exam proctoring instructions. Please advise students to be prepared to present photo identification upon checking in with the testing clerk. When or if students are unable to present photo identification prior to taking an exam, they will be asked to obtain the appropriate identification and to return. Additionally, students are only permitted to take testing materials (those specified by the instructor) into the testing facility; therefore, students should be prepared to leave all personal property, including cell phones, books, backpacks, bags, and other electronic devices in designated lockers for the duration of the exam.
When making exam arrangements with students, please inquire about any testing accommodations they may require, and inform TLC, so staff can ensure that the students’ needs are met; TLC is only able to provide students with accommodations if the instructor has included the student’s accommodation information on the Examination Information Form. TLC provides test proctoring services on the Valencia campus during Winter 2014 semester Monday and Thursday from 9:30am-4:30pm and Tuesday and Wednesday from 9:30am-6pm. Spring testing hours are Monday-Thursday, 8am-8pm and Friday/Saturday 9am-1pm (Valencia Campus). Students must arrive in enough time to complete their exam before closing.
Proctoring for Online Classes
All of the above instructions apply for instructors utilizing TLC for proctoring services for their online classes; however, students are required to call 661-362-3194 to make an appointment as space is limited. Students should call at least one week in advance to secure their spot. Arrangements for proctoring at alternate locations is a 7-10 business day time frame, so due to time constraints in winter semester, students should plan to take their examination at TLC on the Valencia campus.
