Key Points to Remember

  • All cell phones must be turned OFF and stored in a locker.
  • We check each student’s photo id. Beginning fall 2013, if a student does not have a photo id they will not be allowed to test.
  • No food or drink in the testing areas, unless it is bottled water. (Exceptions are made for medical reasons and reviewed case by case.)
  • 48 Hour Rule: An on-line request must be submitted at least 48 hours before each test or quiz is scheduled to begin. (This does not include weekends or holidays.)
  • 5 Minute Late Rule: Any student arriving more than 5 minutes after they are scheduled to start a test, will be unable to take the test at that time.
