Edmonds College - Proctoring Make-Up Tests

Occasionally, a student may not be able to take a test at the scheduled class time because of an illness or some other unavoidable conflict. Under these circumstances, the instructor may use the Testing and Assessment Services to administer the test by filling out and submitting the “Proctored Tests for Online Classes/Makeup Test” Request Form to our office and providing them with a hard copy of the exam.

INSTRUCTOR - How to schedule a test

Please follow the following steps to schedule a make-up test for one of your student(s).

  1. Coordinate the test schedule and directions with the student(s).
  2. Complete and submit “Proctored Tests for Online Classes/Makeup Test” Request Form with the test materials to the Testing and Assessment Services preferably 24-48 hours before the scheduled test. You have two options for submitting this form:
    1. You can complete the request form, attach it to the test(s), and bring it to our office (or send it to us via campus mail). 
    2. You can email the exam to our Print and Mail Center asking them to put the exams in our campus mail box. 
  3. Email us the test instructions and student names in this case so we know to check our campus mailbox.The Testing and Assessment Services will not make a hard copy of the exam if instructors submit the exam in an electronic format. 
  4. Testing and Assessment Services staff is responsible for administration and collection of exams. All other logistics regarding the exams are the responsibility of the instructors.
