Testing Facility & Alternative Testing Procedures

Students taking examinations through the Office of Accessibility & Learning Excellence must comply with The College of Idaho Honor Code.

*NOTE: During the test, each student will be monitored to ensure academic integrity. If a student is caught cheating, the test will be taken away, and the professor will be contacted immediately.

Students may only have the materials the instructor has given written permission to use during the examination. Leave all textbooks, materials, backpacks, coats, and cell phones with the exam proctor.

Students will ordinarily not be permitted to use the restroom during the examination. If a student must use a restroom, the exam proctor will escort the student.

If a student uses the accommodation of taking breaks during exams, all breaks outside of the testing room will be monitored by the exam proctor.

If for some reason the student cannot take the exam at the scheduled time, he or she must contact the Director of Accessibility & Learning Excellence. The student is responsible for notifying the professor(s) if an examination needs to be rescheduled. To schedule exams outside of class time, students must receive permission from the professor.

If a student is late for a scheduled exam, that amount of time will be subtracted from the total allotted test-taking time. For example, if a student is 15 minutes late for a scheduled examination, then those 15 minutes will be subtracted from the total allotted test-taking time.

In the case of inclement weather, the student and professor will contact the Director of Accessibility & Learning Excellence to reschedule the examination.
