University of Akron Group Classroom Exams

Testing Services may provide paper-based group testing to assist instructors at the University of Akron, if alternative resources within academic department do not exist to meet this need. Please refer to Computer Based Assessment & Evaluation for computer-based classroom exams.

Group testing refers to any situation in which an instructor requests our proctoring services for multiple students in a class, or for an entire class. These policies and procedures do not apply to an individual student’s need for separate testing conditions (e.g. accommodated testing requests through the Office of Accessibility; make-up testing for an individual that missed class due to illness, emergency, or excused event).

We require at least 14 days’ notice in advance of test date or window to determine feasibility of managing request. Submitting a request for group testing does not guarantee that this service can be provided, and honoring the request is contingent on resources, availability, and existing service needs during desired test window. For further information or questions about procedures, please contact Dr. Sara Rieder Bennett, Director of Testing, at Please complete and submit the Request for Group Testing form.
