How to Prepare Your Students

To avoid miscommunication, it is imperative that students be thoroughly familiar with Testing Center policies and procedures prior to testing. 

  • Instructors are expected to review with students and/or share web address to the Testing Center policies and procedures.
  • Before sending a student to the Michigan Tech Testing Center (Library 226), the instructor should make sure that the student knows the following to ensure that the student requests for and is given the correct exam: (1) instructor’s name, (2) course name and (3) course/section number.

NOTE: The Testing Center  encourages instructors to have students sign a Nondisclosure Agreement (similar to this example), which includes the important information above.

  • The instructor will provide the student with the date and time the exam will be proctored by the Testing Center and inform the student that a picture ID (with both first and last name) is required. Michigan Tech IDs are acceptable for Michigan Tech offered course exams. 
  • It is the instructor’s responsibility to inform students regarding the material covered by the test, question types, length of time allowed for exam, and materials allowed while testing, such as a book, notes or a calculator. The Testing Center can provide #2 pencils and scratch paper if needed.
  • Inform your student(s) of your policy if the student misses a scheduled exam in the Testing Center. For additional information, refer to policies.

Weather Policy

If Michigan Tech is closed due to inclement weather, the Testing Center will be closed also. If you were scheduled for a proctored exam during this closure, please contact the instructor to reschedule the exam. A commercial exam must be rescheduled through the commercial organization.
