Students must sign up for a time slot before taking a test in Academic Testing. Students who arrive without signing up first, will not be allowed to take a test. Read the Student Information section on this page, thoroughly, for details.
Academic Testing administers tests at the request of instructors for math and science courses, Internet and hybrid classes, make-up tests for campus courses, advanced standing tests and computer proficiency exams. Academic Testing does not give placement tests. Please contact Enrollment and Specialized Testing (EAST) if you would like to take a placement test.
Academic Testing also proctors tests originating from other institutions. The proctoring fee is $15 per test and requires special permission. For more information about our requirements or to make an appointment, please call.
The GED is only given at approved testing locations. For more information about the GED, please visit the State of Oklahoma GED webpage. The ACT, COMPASS, CLEP and DSST tests are given in Enrollment and Specialized Testing (EAST).
To take a test, students must provide:
Students must sign up for a time slot before taking a test in Academic Testing. Students who arrive without signing up first, will not be allowed to take a test.
Students who cannot come to campus to take a test may request remote proctoring through their professor who will coordinate with Academic Testing if that is an acceptable option. Remote proctoring is conducted via Zoom on a limited basis.
Students should sign up for back-to-back time slots if a test is expected to take longer than the length of a single time slot.
Students may not start a test within the last hour of the selected time slot. Students must complete and submit tests during the selected time slot without exception unless they are taking a test that exceeds the time slot length and they have signed up for back-to-back slots.
Students may wish to arrive a few minutes early to allow for check-in time and for the potential of waiting in line.
Exams may not be started within one hour of closing. All tests must be submitted 15 minutes before closing regardless of how much time the instructor has allotted for test completion. Please arrive early enough to allow ample time to complete your test.
Children may not be left unattended in Academic Testing or elsewhere in the Learning Resources Center while their accompanying adult is testing. If an unforeseen circumstance occurs and you arrive to take a test with a child, we will do our best to make accommodations if we have an individual testing room available. Please call if you need to make arrangements or have questions.
Cell phones, wearable smart devices, photo/copying devices, and other unapproved electronics are not permitted in testing rooms.
Food and drinks are not permitted in testing rooms.
In order for Academic Testing to provide a pleasant and secure testing experience, faculty members need to:
Please read the Student Information section on this page and advise students accordingly.
Exams will not be proctored remotely during finals week. Instructors who wish to schedule remote proctoring for a final exam, may do so before finals week.
Tests will not be given without a computer test instruction sheet or instructions included on the paper exam.
Please do not send tests to Academic Testing through interoffice mail. Besides being a potential test security issue, delays in mail delivery can cause students to panic when they show up to take a test before the test does. Please bring tests to Academic Testing and check them in personally.
Completed tests will not be returned through interoffice mail. Faculty members must either pick up their tests in person or authorize someone to pick them up. Authorization must be in writing. Authorization forms are available in Academic Testing.
During periods of high traffic, like finals week, lines can back up quickly, and Academic Testing staff may not be able to answer the phone. If it is imperative that you speak with a staff member about a time critical matter during these occasions, you may either visit the office in person or send a messenger to deliver your message.
