Please note:

On-campus proctoring of the GED/Pearson Vue, HESI, and CLEP exams will resume on September 8, 2020.  Please note that all visitors coming on campus to take these exams will need to sign and submit the CAC Visitor Acknowledgement before being allowed on campus.   We also ask that you email SPC.TestingCenter@centralaz.edu to notify us that this process has been completed.

In addition, please continue to view our Testing webpage for guidance on current rules and procedures to test on campus.


Academic Testing continues to be suspended due to the COVID-19 school closures. Please continue to monitor the website and check Blackboard regularly for updates about specific classes.

Central Arizona College Testing Centers highly encourage you to be mindful of the following recommendations:

  • ·If you are ill, exposed, or at risk of exposing others, please reschedule your test.
  • ·Wear face covering in public settings; for example, the CAC Testing Center
  • ·Use the hand sanitizing station upon entering the Testing Center.
  • ·We sanitize each workstation prior to and following each use.
  • ·We encourage and enforce the CDC recommendation of Physical Distancing

The CAC Testing Center is operating under strict protocols. Therefore, it is imperative that you are on time for your scheduled test. You will be required to wait outside the testing center if you arrive more than 5-minutes early.  Late arrivals may lose their appointments. If you know you will be late, please call the Testing Center at 520-494-5405. Our office phone is staffed only during scheduled testing days.

You are required to check in with campus police prior to being permitted on campus. They will ask you questions relating to health, travel, and COVID exposure as part of their screening process. Please allow yourself sufficient time to process through the CAC police checkpoint at our Signal Peak Campus prior to your scheduled test.


What is a proctored exam, and why do I need one?

A proctored exam is a test that is required for your course, but it is not given during class time. You may need one if your Online, Face-to-Face, or Hybrid class at Central Arizona College requires you to take a proctored exam at an Academic Testing location.  Your instructor will announce this requirement via in person, your syllabus, or in your Blackboard ULTRA course shell.

FAQs

Be sure to bring a picture ID to your exam appointment. The Central Arizona College ID is preferred, but a valid driver’s license or passport is acceptable.

Math exams: Your instructor will provide information on whether you can use a calculator, index cards, formula sheets, and scratch paper. Lockers are provided so that items that are not allowed may be secured by the tester.

Partnered exams may require your receipt from the cashier’s window or other materials.

Student walk-ins will be accommodated based on time and space availability.

Walk-ins should anticipate longer waits during peak testing periods.

Calling at least one week in advance can help to ensure that you receive your preferred time and date.

The testing center observes College Policy 508 – Minor Children on Campus.

“No employee, student, or visitor to the College shall leave a child under the age of 16 unattended on campus, nor may such person leave a child with a College employee or student, unless the child is enrolled in and attending an authorized program of the College.”

All tests end five minutes to close. Example 6:55 p.m. This is true even if your test indicates that you have more time.

You must stay in the testing room until your test is complete. Leaving the room for any reason will result in the submission of the test, and possible notification for academic dishonesty. *

Cell Phones, wallets, purses, etc. should be in a locker. Possession of these items in the testing room will result in a notification of academic dishonesty. *

Scratch paper and notecards will be collected at the end of your test. Please turn them in.

*See the Code of Conduct in the Student Handbook.

To purchase a partnered exam that may require a fee, testers need to go to the cashier’s window and purchase the exam. The cashier should have a fee schedule.

Remember to bring your receipt to the testing center.

No monies are exchanged at the testing center.

Proctors cannot adjust end dates on exams. If you miss the last testing date, you must contact the instructor for an extension. S/he will notify the testing center if the date is extended.

Most partnered exams must be taken on the same day that they are purchased. Be prepared by scheduling early and bringing the required items to the testing center.

Please call the testing center if you cannot make your appointment. Staff would be happy to find a different date that will work for you.
