Testing & Exam Service
OSI offers support for exam building, course evaluations, grading and technical assistance during exam sessions. In Spring 2016, the college centralized testing for the professional DVM program, requiring all exams be administered at the College of Veterinary Medicine campus.
Students with Accommodations
The college has a separate space for students with special testing accommodations. This space is called our new Quiet Room located in the Education Center. The room has carrels to maintain security and privacy and a designated proctor. The coordination of these exams are managed by Melissa Cox and Khalid Snowden. Students with accommodations may still opt to test at the Disability Resource Center.
There will always be proctors available for electronic exams. The college has about 50 exams per semester which are scheduled by OSI. Instructors who need proctors for paper exams should contact Khalid at beginning of the semester.
The proctors are trained to provide basic troubleshooting. Depending on the technical issue and the time required to troubleshoot, the student may be given a loaner iPad provided by OSI.
