Test Proctoring Information


Facilities
The Center has a traditional testing room for paper and pencil tests that seats approximately 35 students and an on-line testing room that is equipped with 15 PC workstations. The Center employs a surveillance system to assist in monitoring testing. Center staff record questionable behavior through a digital video recorder for later review by the Director of Student Success Services, the Dean of Student Services, the Dean of Instruction, appropriate faculty members and, if necessary, the appropriate Vice President.


WSCC Test Proctoring 

The Center proctors course tests for a variety of courses. Additionally, makeup test proctoring is conducted in the Center. On-line testing for WSCC courses is also conducted in the Center.


Test Proctoring for Other Colleges and Universities

The Center proctors both traditional and on-line tests for other colleges and universities. Testing is arranged on an individual basis through the Center. Students should contact the Center by email or phone to schedule testing prior to arrival. Tests may be mailed, faxed, or emailed (contact information appears below) and should include proctoring information, instructions for returning tests, and, if traditional mail is used, an addressed and stamped return envelope. There is a proctoring fee of $15 per exam administration for non Michigan Community College Virtual Learning Collaborative enrolled students.


WSCC Testing Hours

Hours for proctoring tests during fall and winter semesters are 8 a.m. until 8 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 8 a.m. until 3 p.m. on Friday. Summer semester hours are reduced. The Center has limited hours between semesters and on break weeks. Testing may be scheduled on an appointment basis during closed periods. The Center will try to accommodate students needing tests proctored between semesters, but testing services may not be available on specific dates. During semesters, all tests must be completed by closing time of each day.  Students must allow for the necessary time to complete a test prior to the specified closing time.
