Testing Center

LCSC Faculty Testing Information

The LCSC Testing Center is here to provide proctoring services for LCSC online and hybrid classes, on-campus class makeup exams, and exams for LCSC students with approved accommodations.  Please contact us with any questions or concerns you may have about testing procedures and policies.

For all types of exams if scratch paper or notes are allowed during an exam these items will be collected and shredded when the student finishes their exam.  If an instructor wishes, these items can be returned with the test instead of being shredded.  Students will never be allowed to leave with any notes or scratch paper they used during a test.

Proctored Blackboard Tests for Online and Hybrid Classes

At the beginning of each semester, LCSC faculty that teach online or hybrid classes who require their exams be proctored, must fill out the online Proctored Exam Submission Form.  This form will give the Testing Center all the information necessary to proctor the exams.  Once a form is received by the Testing Center, a copy will be emailed to the instructor, so the instructor has a record of what was submitted.  

Instructors must inform the Testing Center of any changes to their original submission made during the semester via email. A couple examples of common changes are testing date changes or the original instructions were "no notes allowed" and now an instructor wants to allow notes.  Any changes must be emailed to the Testing Center right away.

Makeup Tests for On-Campus Classes

Instructors teaching on-campus classes have the option to utilize the Testing Center for makeup exams if a student will miss or has missed a test in class.  The instructor must fill out and submit the Makeup Exam Cover Sheet.  There are two options for this form.  There is a PDF that was created to be filled out and emailed directly from Adobe by clicking the envelope icon in the toolbar and emailing it to testing@lcsc.edu.  There is also an online version of this form that can be submitted from any type of device. The online form does not allow tests to be attached to it.  If you use the online form either email the test to testing@lcsc.edu or hand deliver it.

This form must be on file with the Testing Center before the student will be allowed to make an appointment. 

If multiple students need to make up the same test, more than one student name can be put on the form.  Actual exams can be hand delivered or emailed to the Testing Center.  

Students must contact the Testing Center themselves to schedule an appointment for their makeup test.  Appointments for makeup tests will not be made until the Makeup Exam Cover Sheet is on file with the Testing Center.

If a scantron is required for the test, the instructor must provide the scantron. Otherwise the student will be told to write directly on the exam.

Exams For Students With Approved Testing Accommodations in On-Campus Classes

At the beginning of each semester, students who need accommodations will visit the Disabilty Services office and meet with a counselor.  The counselor will assign accommodations and give the student paperwork to give to each of their instructors, as well as the Testing Center.  Throughout the semester, students who wish to use their accommodations for testing will contact the Testing Center for an appointment. The student will be scheduled to start their exam the same date and time as the class is taking the test, when possible.  Some students are given extended time for testing and if they have classes back to back we may not be able to schedule the students test at the class time, as we do not want to have them miss their other classes. Testing will always be scheduled the same day the class takes the test, unless given permission for a different day by the instructor.  The student will never be scheduled to start and complete the test before the regularly scheduled class takes the test without instructor permission.

It is the responsibility of the student to schedule their appointment with the Testing Center, at least 1 week ahead of time.  The student will inform their instructor they have scheduled the appointment so the instructor can then proceed with sending the appropriate information to the Testing Center.  The Testing Center will also send an email to the instructor's lcsc.edu email address requesting the test and cover sheet.

Instructors must fill out the Accommodation Exam Cover Sheet prior to the test date and submit it to the Testing Center.  There are two options for this form.  There is a PDF that was created to be filled out and emailed directly from Adobe by clicking the envelope icon in the toolbar and emailing it to testing@lcsc.edu.  There is also an online version of this form that can be submitted from any type of device. The online form does not allow tests to be attached to it.  If you use the online form either email or hand deliver it. This form can be filled out anytime during the semester, but must be on file with the Testing Center 2 business days prior to the test date.  Actual exams can be hand delivered or emailed to the Testing Center. 

If mulitple students need to take the same test, more that one students name can be put on the form.  Actual exams can be hand delivered or emailed to the Testing Center.  

If scantrons are required for the test, the instructor must provide the scantron. Otherwise the student will be told to write directly on the exam.
