**Students no longer need to make an appointment to take a test in Academic Testing. Please read all instructions on this page so that you are fully prepared when you arrive to take a test.**
Academic Testing administers advanced standing tests and class tests at the request of instructors for online, on-campus, and hybrid courses. Academic Testing does not give placement tests. Contact Enrollment and Specialized Testing (EAST) if you would like to take a placement test.
At present, Academic Testing cannot proctor tests originating from other institutions. We hope to resume this service as soon as conditions allow.
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:
Exams may not be started within one hour of closing. All tests must be submitted fifteen minutes before closing regardless of how much time the instructor has allotted for test completion. Arrive early enough to allow ample time to complete your test.
Students who have SAS accommodations requiring an individual testing room should call Academic Testing to schedule one of our available rooms.
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 ahead 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.
Students found with unapproved testing materials or otherwise violating the Academic Testing conduct policy will be given a warning. Upon a second offense, the student will lose Academic Testing privileges for the remainder of the semester. If the second offense occurs in the last month of the semester, the student will also lose Academic Testing privileges for the following semester.
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.
We cannot accept delivery of paper exams via interoffice mail or email. Please bring tests to Academic Testing and check them in personally or send an authorized representative.
Computer test instruction sheets are shredded at the end of each semester. Please put a new sheet on file prior to giving the test in a new semester.
Tests will not be given without a computer test instruction sheet or instructions included on the paper exam.
Do not end test availability on a Friday or Sunday due to the abbreviated hours on those days.
During finals week, Academic Testing only has capacity to proctor final exams. Please end all regular exams given in Academic Testing by the Thursday before finals week. Make sure that your instruction sheets reflect this deadline and communicate to students.
Please open exams given to entire classes for a minimum of three business days.
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.
Use the department email address when sending email to Academic Testing so that whoever is in the office will receive your message. We will reply all to confirm receipt.
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 or respond to emails in a timely manner. If it is imperative that you speak with a staff member about a time-critical matter during these occasions, either visit the office in person or send a messenger to deliver your message.
