Instructional Testing: Questions & Answers

  • Can I test at any Testing Center?
    • Many Distance Learning classes use the Testing Center for some or all of their exams. If your class uses the Testing Center, your instructor should provide you with a specific test deadline and instructions. Tests for non-DL courses may be limited to certain centers - confirm your preferred test location with your instructor.
  • Do I need to have an ACC Student ID card to test?
  • Can I take more than one test while I'm in the Testing Center?
    • You may only take one test at a time. If you need to take another test, you must check in to the kiosk again. If there is a wait line, you must return to the line and wait to test again.
  • What do I need in order to retest?
    • Contact your instructor or your course syllabus to find out if a retest if available for your class. Some classes require written permission from your instructor to retest.
  • Is there a place to store personal items while I am testing?
    • While most Testing Centers have personal lockers, you should leave your personal property in your car if possible. If a locker is unavailable, personal items, including cell phones, must remain in a designated area unsupervised by staff. ACC is not responsible for personal property stored.
  • How do I obtain my test results?
    • Contact your instructor for your results. If you used a red scanform to test, a raw score is usually provided at completion of testing. Hold on to your Check-out sheet until your instructor confirms that they have received your test.
