Who can use the Testing Center?

If you have students who need to take a make-up test or have an accommodation agreement that specifies that they are permitted to take quizzes and tests in the testing center then we are here for you! The testing center supplies back up testing for online courses other opportunities for students to take tests in proctored environments need to be available. If you teach an online class that requires tests to be proctored (such as online Math courses do) we'll work with you to figure out how we can help accommodate your students. Please note, if you have to miss a class when you have a test scheduled, we cannot proctor tests for your entire class.

Proctored Exam Coversheet

Please fill out the and attach one to the test.

If you have multiple students needing to take a test, please fill out one Proctored Exam Coversheet  (pdf version) or Proctored Exam Coversheet (Googledoc version)  per test. Every coversheet must include the student's name and we attach it the test to ensure that the correct student takes the correct test. If your test has two distinct parts: e.g. Part A requires a calculator and Part B prohibits the use of a calculator, please use 2 coversheets because it is like 2 different tests.

Appointments for Students

Please have your students make appointments at least 24 hours in advance of testing. We have a limited number of seats and need to plan in advance. Students are encouraged to use the online form to request an appointment www.gcc.mass.edu/testing/register/, but they may also call 413-775-1821 or drop by C110.
