Testing Center Procedures for Faculty

Students with approved exam accommodations may take their exams/quizzes at our Testing Center, located in the OAS (Erwin Hall 22).

To take an exam/quiz at the Testing Center, students must schedule an appointment via Accommodate 72-hours in advance of the scheduled exam/quiz. If the student has missed the 72-hour window to make an appointment, we will contact you to make arrangements. Please do not administer 'pop' quizzes without first consulting with the OAS. 

Testing Appointment Procedures

Please refer to the instructions below:

1. You will receive an email notification that a testing appointment is ready for your review.

2. Log into Accommodate as 'Faculty'

3. Click on 'Courses and Exams' in the left navigation panel, choose the relevant course, and click the 'Test Center Requests' tab. Click on the student's name.

4. Review the exam details, and click 'Provide Exam/Details'. Please complete the exam form fully (you may wait 24 hours prior to the testing appointment to provide/upload a copy of the exam). Click the blue 'Submit' button. Follow these steps again to upload a copy of the exam when you are ready.

If you have any questions regarding Testing Center procedures, please contact testcenter@geneseo.edu, or give us a call at 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) Cell phones and other electronic devices are not allowed into the testing room.
