Examination Instructions for Faculty
The Learning Center (TLC) offers a variety of testing venues to meet student and faculty needs. Testing rooms are available for make-up exams, DSPS accommodations, and exams on the computer. To best serve students enrolled in face-to-face classes who need to complete exams in The Learning Center (TLC) and to ensure that TLC continues to provide a secure testing environment, we request that students follow specific testing guidelines and procedures.
Once students have made arrangements with their instructor to take an exam in TLC , the instructor will need to provide TLC with the examination as well as any exam proctoring instructions. Please advise students to be prepared to present photo identification upon checking in with the testing clerk. When or if students are unable to present photo identification prior to taking an exam, they will be asked to obtain the appropriate identification and to return. Additionally, students are only permitted to take testing materials (those specified by the instructor) into the testing facility; therefore, students should be prepared to leave all personal property, including cell phones, books, backpacks, bags, and other electronic devices in designated lockers for the duration of the exam.
When making exam arrangements with students, please inquire about any testing accommodations they may require, and inform TLC, so staff can ensure that the students’ needs are met; TLC is only able to provide students with accommodations if the instructor has included the student’s accommodation information on the Examination Information Form. TLC provides test proctoring services on the Valencia campus during Spring and Fall semesters from 8am-8pm Monday-Thursday and 9am-1pm on Friday and Saturday. Winter and Summer Hours: Monday and Thursday from 9am-5pm and Tuesday and Wednesday from 9am-7pm. Check TLC's main page for CCC testing hours. Students taking exams for online courses will need to be prepared to take their exam at the Valencia Campus. Students must arrive in enough time to complete their exam before closing.
Proctoring for Online Classes (Valencia Campus Only)
All of the above instructions apply for instructors utilizing TLC for proctoring services for their online classes; however, students are required to make an appointment online at least 48 hours in advance as space is limited. Please be aware that the time frame is 48 full hours, not just two days. Please call 661-362-3194 if you have any questions. Arrangements for proctoring at alternate locations is a 7-10 business day time frame, so due to time constraints in winter and summer semesters, students should plan to take their examination at TLC on the Valencia campus.
