Testing Methods

ACC Testing Services

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

The Office of Distance & Alternative Education 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.
