Testing In The Brenham Learning Center
Policies and Procedures for Instructors
TESTING POLICIES AND PROCEDURES FOR STUDENTS:
The following policies and procedures apply to all students taking exams in the Blinn Testing Centers:
All students must present a current Blinn picture I.D.to take a test. (Students enrolled in programs that do not issue Blinn I.D.’s must present a current picture I.D. such as a driver’s license.) No exams will be distributed to a student without a valid I.D.
All students should know the course name and number, instructor’s name, and the number or title of the exam to be administered.
All testing materials such as scantrons, bluebooks, and pencils or pens are provided by the student. Students will leave backpacks, books, notes, cell phones, pda’s, etc. at the desk before receiving exams. All personal items will be returned when the exam is completed and turned in.
All exams must be started at least 90 minutes before closing
(see hours of operation
). The Testing Center will not stay open after hours for students to finish exams. All exams will be taken up at closing whether completed or not. If a student requires extra time, it is the student’s responsibility
to arrive early.
The Testing Centers administer the exams as per the instructor’s directives; no exceptions are made to the instructor’s policies or specific exam instructions. Students should not contact the Testing Center with problems taking an exam, the instructor must be contacted. The Testing Center staff will not advise a student regarding policies outside the center’s area of responsibility. Students will always be referred to the instructor.
A student is not allowed to leave the Testing Center once the student has started an exam. If a student insists, the exam will be taken up, noting that the student left the Testing Center before completing the exam, and returned to the instructor. The exam will not be returned to the student without explicit written instructions from the instructor.
No talking by students taking exams is allowed. If a student ignores this rule, the student will be warned unless it is an obvious attempt at cheating which carries no warning. At the next occurrence the exam will be taken up, noting the reason, and returned to the instructor.
It is inappropriate to bring young children to the Testing Center.
