Testing Preparation

In person testing is available on the Gallatin Campus.

Please Note: Many classes will require the use of a second device while testing via Zoom. Please check your syllabus or ask your instructor if you aren't sure if you need a second device for testing

Before joining the Zoom room for testing, please ensure that Zoom has been downloaded to your computer. You can do this by going to the Zoom Download Page and downloading Zoom Client for Meetings. If you do not have a webcam on your computer, you will need a smartphone or tablet ready to act as a webcam.

If you have a Chromebook, you will also need to install the Chrome Remote Desktop extension. This Chrome extension will allow a Learning Commons staff member to put in the password for the test remotely.

Once you join the Zoom testing room, you will enter a waiting room and might have to wait a few minutes. When it is your turn, you will be admitted to the Zoom Room. The check-in process will begin in this room. You will be asked to give your name, course number, instructor, and Zoom version. You will then be assigned to a separate check-in room.

In the check-in room, you will:

  • Show a photo ID such as your Student ID, Driver's License, or passport. Please have that ready to go before joining the Learning Commons Zoom Room.
  • You will also be required to give a quick visual scan of the room you are in and show your workspace. We will verify that you are the only person in your immediate area and only have approved items within your workspace. All electronics should be placed outside the testing area unless it is to be used for proctoring the test. 

Throughout your test, you are required to share your computer screen, use your webcam to give a head and shoulders view of yourself, and keep your microphone on. Although you are not allowed to mute your microphone, you should turn your speaker volume all the way down to help reduce distractions while you are testing.

The following will be reported to your instructor:

  • internet or power disruptions/outages
  • leaving the testing area while your test is in progress
  • moving outside of the view of the camera or turning your camera off
  • not notifying the test proctor prior to logging out of the testing session
  • not complying with requests made by the testing staff
  • other incidents the proctor deems necessary to report, such as suspected academic dishonesty

Academic dishonesty, and its consequences, are defined in the Student Handbook on pages 36 - 38.
