Completing Tests Online

Online testing procedures can vary by institution. It is important to make your plans well in advance of the test date. Be sure to consider the following:

  • Do I have a test to write in my course?
  • When do I write this test?
  • Where can I write it?
  • How far in advance do I need to book?
  • What exams forms do I need to submit and where do I find them?
  • Do I need a test supervisor? (Proctor / Invigilator)
  • How long do I have to write it?
  • What materials can I bring with me?
  • Do I need to arrange transportation to the testing site?
  • What happens if I need to cancel?
  • What happens if I have technology problems?

To answer these questions and more, contact your instructor or your institution's testing services.
