Testing Center Procedures for Faculty

Fall 2021 Testing Center Update

The Testing Center will continue in-person operations at typical capacity Monday through Friday, 8:00am-4:00pm for the fall 2021 semester. Students may schedule a testing appointment for paper/pencil, as well as online exams/quizzes. Students continue to receive their exam accommodations for timed, remote assessments regardless of the location they are taking the exam/quiz. Faculty may use this step-by-step guide for providing extended time for timed Canvas assessments. 

The online Testing Request system application has been updated. Faculty procedures for reviewing and approving testing requests have remained the same. Students must make an appointment to take an in-person exam, and will require at minimum, 3 business days advanced notice of an exam or quiz (no 'pop' quizzes, please). If the student has missed the 72-hour window, or we do not have space for the student on the scheduled exam day, we will contact you to make alternate arrangements. Walk-ins cannot be accommodated. Please approve and upload copies of exams 24 hours prior to the exam date.

If you have any questions regarding Testing Center procedures for the fall 2021 semester, please contact testcenter@geneseo.edu

Testing Appointment Procedures

When you receive an email notification that a student has submitted a request for accommodated testing, go to the link in the email or the Testing Services site to approve or deny the request. The student inputs all information in the request. Please check the requested date and time for accuracy. Fill out the form and submit it noting:

  • Whether books, notes, calculators or other materials may be used (e.g. scantron).
  • Contact information during the test (in case questions arise).
  • How you will get the test to us, and how you would like it returned.
    • Uploaded to the Testing Services site (preferred method). Tests do not have to be uploaded when approving test requests, tests can be uploaded later. Please do not wait to approve a test request because you are in the process of preparing the test.
    • Hand delivered to Erwin 22.
    • Emailed to testcenter@geneseo.edu.

All tests must be received at least 24 business hours in advance of the requested test time (e.g. Monday tests must be received by 3:30 p.m. on the prior Friday). Test envelopes need to be prepared the day before in order to have them ready for the students.

If there is a correction/clarification on a test, notify us as quickly as possible at testcenter@geneseo.edu or 585-245-5112. If time permits, please email or hand deliver the corrected test.

FYI: a) Students who arrive more than 10 minutes late for a test will not be permitted to take the test without permission of the faculty to the Testing Center. The scheduled end time will not change due to late arrival. b) Students must show student ID in order to take a test. c) Cell phones and other electronic devices are not allowed into the testing room.
