IMPORTANT GENERAL TESTING INFORMATION

 

Proper ID:  All tests require a picture identification.  With no photo identification, you will not be allowed to test.

 

Acceptable identification varies depending on exam.  Examples include:

  • ANC or High School Picture ID

  • State Issued Driver's License or ID

  • Passport

 

Dress comfortably:  Wear layered clothing to minimize the distraction of discomfort during testing.

 

Inclement weather:  If ANC is closed due to inclement weather, testing will be canceled or postponed.  If you are scheduled for an exam on a date when inclement weather is predicted or has occurred, please check the ANC website or Facebook page for closing information.  Rescheduling is at the responsibility of the tester.

 

Availability:  Each test session has limited seating; therefore, testers are required to register ahead of the testing session.  All reservations are first come, first served.  Late admittance for in-person test sessions is not allowed 30 minutes after test reservation.

 

Prohibited materials:  Cell phones and other electronic devices must be turned OFF, not just on silent, during testing.  Using or answering phones during testing is grounds for immediate dismissal from the Testing Center and invalidates test scores.

 

Accuplacer & Calculators:  The Accuplacer Exam prohibits the use of any calculator other than the built-in calculator provided in the exam system.  Accommodations are possible through ANC Disability Services.  Violators of this will have their test scores invalidated, including their Reading and Writing scores and be forced to reschedule.

PROCTORING SERVICES

 

Proctoring ANC Tests

ANC Faculty looking to have their tests proctored by the ANC Testing Center should contact the Testing Center to make an appointment and must complete the Exam Proctoring Cover Sheet, regardless if the exam is computer-based or paper and pencil.  If the Instructor intends to test their entire class with the Testing Center, they will need to attach a copy of their class roster with the Exam Proctoring Cover Sheet.  In filling out the form, be sure to complete all the information and include any specific instructions that the Test Proctor will need to administer the test, including the materials allowed during testing.

 

Testing for Other Colleges

ANC will proctor tests for learners taking correspondence courses from other accredited colleges and universities.  Call in advance to set an appointment.  Testers will be asked to fill out information for the Testing Center's records.  The tester's instructor is responsible for providing all the necessary information to administer the exam before the scheduled testing session.  The tester is responsible for connecting with the Testing Center for test sessions and other needs and also connecting their instructor with the ANC Testing Coordinator for proctoring needs.

 


 

TEST ACCOMMODATIONS

 

Testers that require special accommodations for physical and/or learning disabilities, must visit Admissions & Student Services in Statehouse Hall to discuss any and all paperwork needed to identify the accommodations needed for testing.  Testers will need to make an appointment to take their exam a few days to a week in advance, as most exams require special arrangements.
