Testing Center Procedures for Faculty

The Testing Center will continue in-person operations at typical capacity Monday through Friday, 8:00am-4:00pm for the fall 2022 semester. 

Students taking exams in the Testing Center make a testing appointment using our online scheduling system 72-hours in advance of the scheduled exam/quiz.  Please do not administer 'pop' quizzes without first consulting with the OAS. If the student has missed the 72-hour window to make an appointment, we will contact you to make arrangements.

Please note that 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. Students may schedule a testing appointment in the Testing Center for paper/pencil, as well as online exams/quizzes administered in the classroom.

If you have any questions regarding Testing Center procedures, 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. Please check the requested date and time for accuracy. If the date and/or time is inaccurate, or the student has not made prior arrangements with you for a different date and/or time, please contact the OAS. Please submit the form 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. 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.

Please submit exams at least 24 business hours in advance to give us sufficient preparation time. If there is a correction/clarification on a test, notify us as quickly as possible at testcenter@geneseo.edu or 585-245-5112.

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.
