Exams & Procedures
The Office for Academic and Student Affairs (ASA) 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.
Currently, the majority of our exams are administered electronically via ExamSoft. Our students test on their iPad devices in the Computer Lab and Lecture Halls.
What is ExamSoft?
ExamSoft is the exam management solution the college has adopted, along with the other colleges in the Health Science Center, to build and administer exams and store performance and outcome reports for accreditation needs. You can find out more of the software program by clicking here.
Students with Testing Accommodations
The college has a separate space for students with special testing accommodations. This space is called the Quiet Room, located in the Education Center. The room has carrels, a surveillance camera and a designated proctor. The coordination of these exams are managed by both the Curriculum Coordinator and Exam Coordinator in ASA. Students with accommodations may still opt to test at the Disability Resource Center (DRC).
There will always be proctors available for electronic exams. The college has about 50 exams per semester which are scheduled by ASA. Instructors who need proctors for paper exams should contact the Exam Coordinator – Alexis Jenkins (email@example.com) 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 paper exam or a loaner iPad provided by ASA.
