Assessment Center Expectations

We want your testing experience to be as pleasant as possible, so please familiarize yourself with our expectations prior to your visit.

  • We expect that you are who you say you are, but we must insist that you provide photo identification before we can allow you to take any test;
  • Your instructors expect that you will only use the materials they have specified for your test, so please place unauthorized materials and anything not allowed by your instructor and under your desk before logging in;
  • Your peers expect a quiet room in which to test, so please turn off all electronic devices before you come into the Assessment Center and refrain from talking while in the room;
  • The college expects to keep the furniture and equipment as long as it is useful, so please help us keep the Assessment Center nice by disposing of all food and drink outside;
  • You expect to be treated with respect while in the Assessment Center, so please refrain from any behavior that a proctor might perceive to be dishonest or disrespectful (remove your hat before entering, look only at your own computer, leave friends and family at home, etc.).

Please see the schedules listed above for information about proctor availability throughout the college or visit the MGCCC eLearning page for more information about online courses. In addition to proctoring for online students, the Assessment Centers administer many types of tests. Online students, as well as students desiring TEAS, Accuplacer, OPAC, and Ability to Benefit tests make their appointments with our online appointment service. Students who wish to schedule CLEP, Work Keys, and outside exams, must make their appointments by phone, in person, or via email (preferred).
