Testing Lab Procedures and Policies

Fall 2020

  • CBAE will only be staffed for individually scheduled exams, prioritizing students requiring accommodations and other urgent testing needs. Distancing guidelines constrain our ability to proctor entire courses this semester. Faculty are encouraged to contact staff at testing@uakron.edu (CBAE) for consultation.
  • Students may request scheduling through CBAE here. Staff may approve, modify, or deny scheduling requests based on need for proctoring, and availability of resources.
  • The Office of Accessibility has moved to limit in-person accommodated testing during the Fall 2020 semester. Accommodated in-person testing will be rare, and will require pre-approval from the student's assigned disability specialist. Students should continue submit requests for testing in CBAE after here after receiving approval from disability specialist. 

Note: Hours are subject to change without notice due to the University closings.

The following policies are designed to provide the best testing experience for all students.  Students testing are expected to abide by posted policies and the direction of the CBAE staff.  In addition, we ask that you respect others taking tests by remaining quiet at all times once you enter Schrank Hall North Room 152.  Violation of Testing Center policies, cheating and attempts to cheat will be reported as academic misconduct to your instructor and University of Akron officials and are subject to University Disciplinary Policies.

Your UA Zip Card is required to take a test.  Your name and your photo on the UA Zip Card must be completely legible.

You must seat in your assigned seat for testing.  You will not be permitted to select your own seat for testing.

Cell phones, electronic devices/accessories, and listening devices (unless ADA) must be powered off AND placed out of sight the entire time you are in SHN 152.

Nothing is permitted on the desktop/visible while you are testing, except for resources that are authorized by the testing center.  

Under no circumstances are students permitted to write down or otherwise record test information.

Once you begin testing you may not leave the room and then return to complete your test.  If there is an emergency and you must leave the room during your test, notify a proctor.  Your test will be ended and your instructor will be notified of the emergency.

Computers in the testing lab may only be used for taking tests. 

Only students who are testing are permitted in the testing center.  Children are not permitted in the testing center.  For their safety and in accordance to university policy children may not be left unattended while on campus.

Only service animals are permitted in accordance to UA service animal guidelines.

Food, drinks, liquids/oil, air fragrances/devices, tobacco products and smoking devices are not permitted inside SHN 152 testing lab.

The testing center is monitored by test proctors and under video/audio surveillance at all times.  For further assistance, raise your hand and a testing proctor will assist you.
