Make-Up Testing/SCANNING

When dropping off make-up exams please follow these guidelines:

  • Make-up exams must be hand delivered to the Testing Office. Exams may not emailed, faxed, or mailed (this includes interoffice mail). Exams must be picked up in person by the instructor or designated staff member.
  • A make-up exam form must be completed. Student names must be provided to ensure that only students designated by instructor with prior authorization may take exams. Exams will not be accepted by the Testing & Evaluation Depart without student names. Extra copies of exam cannot be left.
  • Make-up testing should be used for extenuating circumstances and not as an alternative for classroom testing, as space is limited.
  • Do not send entire classes to take makeup tests (Limit of 6 tests per instructor). Final exams must be administered in the classroom at the designated time during Finals Week.
  • All make-up testing, except for the final exam, must be completed before Finals Week begins.
  • Professors should pick up make-up tests periodically; do not let the tests accumulate the entire semester.
  • Make sure enough copies of tests correspond to the number of students authorized to take tests.
    The Testing & Evaluation Department cannot copy tests.
