Student Testing Service
TEMC administers a number of tests and maintains information on correspondence exams, exams for credit, placement & college readiness tests, proctored exams, and upper level barrier tests. See Testing Services (mouse over tab above) for detailed information on all testing services and latest start times for all exams. Please arrive 10 to 15 minutes before the latest start time for your test to complete the check-in process.
The computer testing lab consists of 34 computer testing stations and an additional 5 paper/pencil only stations. We generally operate on a first come, first served basis. However, appointments are required for ALL of the following exams/services: TEAS, Correspondence exams, proctored exams, and exams for which examinees require testing accommodations. Most days we are able to accommodate all examinees. If you are traveling a long distance or have a deadline, please call TEMC at 512.245.2276 the morning you plan to take your exam. See our testing lab hours.
Please be aware that computer technology is still imperfect, and occasionally technical difficulties may cause delays in any part of the process, especially related to computer-based tests. Therefore, we suggest that if your test has a deadline, that you take it sufficiently early to allow for scores to be received in time if such difficulties should occur. The Testing Center strives to ensure that tests are administered, scored, and reported accurately, securely, and in as timely a manner as possible, but we cannot be responsible for your deadlines.
Testing with Accommodations
Students with disabilities who may require accommodations (alternative format, reader service, extended time, etc.) must contact the Office of Disability Services (512.245.3451) prior to taking the test. Verification of disability will be required.
All examinees who require accommodations must complete an Accommodated Testing Request Form to test at our facility at least two weeks prior to the desired exam date. Requests will be processed within two business days. Please note our testing lab hours and available start times for the exam you wish to take when selecting your appointment time and make sure to take into account additional time you may need.
TEMC offers test scanning and scoring services to all faculty at Texas State University. Multiple choice exams taken on Texas State scan forms can be dropped off at the TEMC window in Commons Hall, Ground Floor, room G4. Instructors must use the standard Texas State scan forms for their exams. Please follow our Exam Submission Guidelines.
All forms including key sheets can be purchased from the University Bookstore. Additionally, the pink key sheets that are used with form ED-99 (the green, 8 ½" X 11" answer sheets with 150 items having five response options) can be ordered directly from TEMC in reams of 500 key sheets for $37.50, or a box of five reams for $187.50. To place an order, please contact Kelly Eureste with the quantity you would like to purchase. In addition, please send your account numbers and we will prepare an E-IDT.
Exams will be scanned and run through a scoring program which will generate score reports for faculty. For more detailed information about these reports, please click here: How to Read Exam Output.
Turnaround time for exams submitted at TEMC is guaranteed within 1 business day (e.g. if you bring your exams at 3pm on Friday, we guarantee to score them by 3pm on Monday), although it is usually a much shorter period of time. To use this service, complete the Exam Request Form and bring it with your exam scan forms to TEMC.
TEMC processes faculty evaluations for many of the departments at Texas State University. This is provided by TEMC as a free service. For departmental faculty evaluations follow our Evaluation Submission Guidelines and complete the Faculty Evaluation Request Form.
