Assessment Center Information
Alternative Delivery Course Testing
Danville Area Community College
Please have exams and any additional materials (scantrons, periodic table) for each student in the Assessment Center at least 1 day before the first day the exam is scheduled to be given. If you are working on a short time frame, please email the exams (we actually prefer for exams to be emailed).
Please complete a copy of the Test Proctor Form (formerly Faculty Checklist) for each test. We need to know, start and end dates the test is available, the time allowed for the test, and how you would like us to return the test to you. We also need you to indicate if this student is receiving accommodations. Please give us your whole class instructions only. We have the information necessary to make the accommodation adjustments. If a student does not agree with the instructions on the checklist they will need to have permission from the instructor to test (i.e.: last date to take the test or use of notes).
Please notify your students that they must schedule an appointment to take an exam after you have sent and we have received the exam. This will ensure students have gotten approvals, we have the correct test prepared for test day, there is not any delay between having the test and the students arrival, and ensures we can maintain our schedule when the student does arrive. They should call the Assessment Center at 443-8708 or schedule online at dacc.edu/depts/assess. To eliminate any confusion and to ensure a student receives the correct exam WE WILL NOT allow walk-in situations any longer.
Please inform your students that they will be required to show a current picture ID at the time they take each exam. We will remind them of this when they call to schedule an appointment.
Students will be required to leave books, book bags, coats, etc., in a designated area, so please specify on the Test Proctor Form if students are allowed to use calculators, books, dictionaries, etc.
Due to the controlled environment of the testing area, students who are testing are the only persons allowed in the Assessment Center testing areas during an exam. Students will not be allowed to bring children, family or friends with them while they test.
All testing areas and rooms are monitored by camera surveillance and Assessment Center staff constantly. Due to the demands brought by the new testing clients, we will also now be required to keep a staff member in each room to monitor and ensure testing integrity. Students who violate standards of academic integrity will have their test, any books, notes or other material immediately confiscated and notification of the incident will be made.
We will shred all exams that were not taken by your students after the end date, unless otherwise indicated to be returned or left open for the student to take at a later date. Please be sure to indicate how you would like to have the completed tests returned to you (campus mail or pick up). If you want your test sent by campus mail it must be indicated on the Test Proctor Form. If you have any questions or concerns please contact the Assessment Center.
