Proctored Testing for Online Courses

The Testing Centers at Howard College in Big Spring, Lamesa, SWCID, and San Angelo offer test proctoring for students taking online courses. Each facility includes seats for computer-based testing and desks for paper exams. With the exception of calculators, as required by an instructor, no other electronic device is allowed in the Testing Center at any time. Non-essential personal items can be stored by the testing center at the Owner’s risk.

All examinees will be required to present a non-expired state or federal government ID or a current school-issued ID prior to being admitted into the testing room.

The cost for testing is $15 per exam and must be paid in advance through the Business Office.

*This testing fee may be waived if the exam is for a Howard College course and the student is a registered Howard College student.

Availability is not guaranteed until the student makes an appointment for a specific time and date.

Note: ADA Accommodations requests must be approved first by a Howard College ADA Coordinator and then by the instructor before scheduling with the Testing Center. Any accommodations beyond additional time require special staffing and must be arranged well in advance. It is the student’s responsibility to make those arrangements in a timely fashion.

The Testing Center can provide proctored tests for students who are taking courses through online and distance programs.

Due to limited space and resources, testing at our facility will be available by reservation only. Availability is guaranteed after the student books an appointment. Students are encouraged to reserve at least 24 hours in advance.

HC instructors should align the exam deadlines for their exams to correlate with Test Center’s Hours of Operation.

No scoring or item analysis is available with this service.

Instructors will be responsible for filling out the appropriate form and selecting each campus that will be asked to administer the exam. This request form must be filled out entirely and should be delivered at least 4 working days in advance of the first scheduled date.

HC Instructors of online courses with no ADA Accommodations (other than extended time) should fill out this HC Non-ADA Proctor Request Form.

*Please note that the Course and Section Number fields are not optional. Neither is the Test Name field. These are needed to ensure each student is administered the correct exam. The Course Roster may be copied from a spreadsheet column and pasted into the appropriate box. 

HC Instructors requesting ADA Accommodations for Online or Face-To-Face courses should use this ADA Proctored Testing Form.

If not included with the initial form, any exam materials should be sent at least 24 hours in advance. If printing of the test or supplemental resources is required, these should also be emailed by that time.
