Testing Services

The University Test Center (UTC) provides testing services for faculty who are teaching on-line courses. At present, testing services for paper and pencil exams are limited.  UTC aims to provide the best alternative-testing accommodations for all faculty and students.   It’s imperative that instructors contact UTC to reserve testing slots for their students. 

Academic Honesty/Testing Irregularities

The Code of Student Conduct is described in detail in the Student Handbook.  All regulations and policies are strictly enforced by UTC.  If UTC directly observes any instance of academic dishonesty, the student will be taken aside and explained that his/her testing will be terminated based on what was observed.  It will be explained to the student that the test, any unauthorized materials, and documentation of UTC’s observations will be turned over to the instructor, who will decide how the matter will be handled.

The University Test Center staff is aware that there are many pressures on students in a testing situation, and that any accusations of cheating can have serious academic, psychological, and legal ramifications.  Therefore, it is UTC’s policy never to accuse a student of cheating or speculate on the likely outcome of the "incident".  UTC is aware that it may be necessary for the student to test on other occasions, and it is important that the student feel comfortable about doing so.  UTC advises the student to discuss the situation with the instructor responsible for the test. 

Instructions for Students Who Plan to Test in UTC

Before you are permitted to take an exam in UTC, you must meet several criteria: 

  • Your name must appear on the class roster that your instructor submits to UTC;
  • You must present to UTC a form of identification (a driver’s license, military ID, Bowie card, or passport) with your photograph at the time of your exam.  
  • You must have registered with UTC to take the exam.

While taking an exam with UTC, do not create or participate in any situations that suggest academic dishonesty. If you create or participate in such situations during your exam time, then your testing session will be terminated, and your test, any unauthorized materials, and documentation of the situation will be turned over to your instructor, who will decide how the matter will be handled.
