Test Taker Expectations
University expectations and regulations will be enforced in the University Testing
Center. You should be familiar with the
Student Conduct Code and the
Academic Integrity Code.
Before booking your exam
Verify credentials. Exams in the Testing Center are generally available
via eCampus. Be sure you can access eCampus before scheduling your testing
seat. Students will need to contact ITS if they have difficulty logging in.
While ITS is very responsive, log in issues may delay the test or cut into
available testing time.
Verify permitted location. Some exams are limited to specific spaces
such as the classroom or a departmental computer lab. Verify with the instructor
which space(s) are permitted for your exam.
Verify time slots. Verify through either course materials or your
instructor the date(s) and time(s) the exam is available for testing. Some instructors
assign a narrow window of opportunity for completing the exam, others allow
a broader time frame. Know what the instructor expects.

Improper use of any personal belongings will be documented by staff and reported

the exam scenario, you may log into eCampus in preparation for the exam.
Access your exam. You can access your exam through your MIX email
Notify staff quickly of technical issues. Staff may be able to troubleshoot
certain technical issues or move the student to a different workstation. If
needed, staff will document issues to assist instructors in the rescheduling
of an exam. It is the instructor’s discretion whether to reschedule an exam
or reset an exam attempt.
During your exam…
Staff support. Testing Center staff may issue notifications regarding
testing updates, procedures, permitted materials, etc. through either the booking
module or Navigate.
Proctoring. Proctors may monitor the testing space and document any technical
issues. Staff can assist students with technical issues accessing the exam,
and if needed, help confirm the successful submission of the exam.
Avoid closing the browser. Depending on the test settings, closing
the web browser may submit an incomplete exam. The ability to resume or restart
the exam will be dependent upon the test settings determined by the instructor.
Confirm exam submission. Exam submissions are typically visible in
My Grades, depending on the class organization in eCampus. Refer questions
regarding test status or scores to the instructor.
Bathroom breaks. One bathroom is available in the lobby. Please notify
staff if a bathroom break is needed so they can verify the bathroom is available.
Remember, any time spent away from the test is time not spent on the test.
