Testing Methods

ACC Testing Services

DL course exams may be administered at the Testing Centers on campus. Refer to Testing Centers: Getting Started Guide for Faculty. Exams should be available at all ACC Testing Centers.

Testing policies and deadlines must be detailed in the course syllabus. Include a link to Testing Center Guidelines and locations and hours of operation for easy access.

Distance Testing

DL facilitates testing services for students outside the Austin area. The student is responsible for finding a testing facility to proctor exams and providing documentation to confirm testing arrangements. Proctors are expected to comply with ACC Testing Center procedures to maintain the integrity of the testing process.
