Assessment Center Faculty Information
The Assessment Center will once again be available for IVCC students who need to take course tests due to accommodations or missed class periods. We will be an option for online classes for the class to take their exam in our location as well.
We have made some changes to how we operate and provide these services. First, our office is now only operating on SCHEDULED APPOINTMENTS. Students must make their appointment 24 hours before they time they hope to come in. Since you have your dates for tests already outlined in your syllabus, please make it a point to strongly encourage students to make their appointments at the beginning of the semester. We will not be accepting walk-ins.
Second, we have moved to core hours and will have a couple of nights available for students who need testing outside of standard office hours. We will offer testing until 7 pm on Wednesday and Thursday evenings beginning the week of August 30th ( the last appointment would be 6 pm). In the event that no one is scheduled to test on those nights (again an appointment must be made 24 hours in advance), we will close at 5 pm on those days. Our weekly schedule will look like this:
Monday 8 am – 4 pm (last appointment at 3 pm)
Tuesday 8 am – 4pm (last appointment at 3 pm)
Wednesday 8 am – 7 pm ( last appointment at 6 pm – if no appointments office will close at 5 pm)
Thursday 8 am – 7 pm (last appointment at 6 pm – if no appointment office will close at 5 pm)
Friday 8 am – 1pm ( last appointment at noon)
Please help us communicate the changes in our services to IVCC students.
All exams submitted to the IVCC Assessment Center must also have guidelines (length of time allowed, date of completion, etc.) for testing established by the instructor. Instructors are to complete a test administration form and also provide a roster for online courses. The IVCC Assessment Center is not available to proctor exams for your course in absence of the instructor. Please contact division dean if assistance is needed for such an issue.
Students who need access to computer, internet, and webcam resources on campus can visit:
- Academic Support Center (ASC)/Student Help Desk, www.ivcc.edu/myivcc
- Jacobs Library, www.ivcc.edu/library
Students should visit the websites of these areas for hours and services.
Students needing testing accommodations for on-campus testing must make arrangements with the Center for Accessibilty and Neurodiversity (CAN)office.
- Students with accommodations are familiar with the testing policies, linked here:
- Faculty should fill out the Disability Services Testing Form indicating how much time to allow for exams, and whether any extra items like calculators, notes, etc. are allowed.
