Students may take makeup, retake, and special-circumstances tests in the Academic Services Center in Library 103. You and your students may take advantage of our services if a student misses a mid-term, final, or other important test during the course of the semester. You may also utilize this service for students who need Special Testing Accommodations.
Please note: Students with documented disabilities and special testing accommodations will take their exams with the Assistant Director of Disability Student Services in 103 Library.
Faculty must complete the Academic Test Request Form each time they wish students to take an exam in the Academic Services Center. Students must present photo identification to take exams in the Assessment Center. The staff will adhere strictly to your written test instructions. Students with disabilities who utilize special testing accommodations will be given their exams as close to the actual test day and time as possible.
Make sure you include the information necessary to provide your students with timely and efficient service. For example, specify testing time for students and indicate any special aids or equipment that they are allowed to use during the exam. If detailed testing instructions are necessary, provide a separate copy of the instructions for your students to read and follow.
The staff in the Center cannot accept homework assignments or special projects from your students – remind them of your own policies and the use of the Red Box.
- Complete an Academic Test Request Form (ATRF).
- Submit the completed Academic Test Request Form (ATRF) providing details about your test. It is important to provide all of the information requested, particularly the names of the students who are eligible to take the test and the deadline date/time by which the test must be completed.
- Type/write the professor’s/instructor’s name at the top of each test.
- Hand deliver the Academic Test Request Form and one test copy for each eligible student to the Academic Services Center (LIB 103/104). You may also email the ATRF and a copy of the exam/quiz. We cannot ensure the security or timely receipt of confidential test materials that are mailed to the office.
- Please refer each student who needs testing to a copy of the Student Guide for using Special Testing Services.
- Tell the student(s) to contact Dr. Kimberly LaBoone (email@example.com or 202-884-9360) or Ms. Hope Fisher (firstname.lastname@example.org or 202-884-9358) to arrange a time to take the exam.
The staff in the Academic Services Center will adhere strictly to your written test instructions. Make sure you include the information necessary to provide your students with timely and efficient service. For example, specify testing time for students and identify any assistive-technology equipment they may require. If detailed testing instructions are necessary, provide a separate copy of the instructions for your students to read and follow.
To avoid any inconvenience to your students and to ensure the staff in Academic Services has sufficient time to process your ATRF(s), we ask that you submit your test(s) at least three (3) workdays in advance of the authorized “begin date.”
The Academic Services Center adheres to Trinity’s Academic Honor Code – students are expected to follow the Honor Code guidelines as described in the Honor Code handbook.
To ensure the integrity of Trinity’s academic testing program, the staff in the Center will maintain the strictest security and confidentiality of the records you provide to our office. The staff will collect the materials from students and will return them to your faculty mail box. The exam may also be scanned and sent to your Trinity email address.
Please complete the “Services Evaluation Form” – it is our goal to provide the highest quality services for faculty and students and we must collect data to improve our services.
Faculty of students with disabilities may also use this service; however, the exam will be administered by the Assistant Director of Disability Student Services - 103 Library, 202-884-9358. Learn more about accommodations here.
