Instructional Testing Services


The ASC offers a variety of testing services to support student learning and serve the public at large. Please remember to bring a valid photo I.D. to all testing appointments.

Makeup Exams

Students who miss a test due to illness or other reasons can, with their instructor's permission, take the test in the ASC Testing Center. The instructor will deliver the test to us and either retrieve it or have it returned via interoffice mail once the student has completed it. No appointment is necessary, but students must bring a photo ID.

TESTING FORM FOR INSTRUCTORS
If you are an Instructor, download the ASC Test Administration Form and return it to us with the test.

Distance Education Exams

Many instructors who teach online courses require students to take a proctored final exam at an approved location. We are happy to offer this service to CR Distance Education students. By administering distance education tests in the ASC over a period of time that includes evening hours, we help to provide flexibility for students and instructors alike.

Final Exams

Students requesting to take a final exam outside of the regularly scheduled final exam time must have their instructor’s authorization, as they would for any other make-up exam.

 

DSPS Accommodations

At College of the Redwoods, students who have professionally verified disabilities are eligible to receive educational support services such as testing accommodations. Accommodations provided to students with disabilities vary, depending on the student's particular educational limitations as well as by what is available at each individual campus.  DSPS students who have approved testing accommodations are welcome to take their exams in the ASC. 

To receive these accommodations, DSPS students need to have a current test-proctoring card, signed by their instructor(s), on file in the ASC. Typical accommodations we provide are extended time, distraction-reduced testing modules, Kurzweil, and use of a computer or other technologies. 

Students desiring accommodations and/or services should contact Disability Services & Programs for Students (DSPS) for support at 476-4280. 

Testing modules may be booked up to one week in advance either in person or by calling the ASC at 476-4154
