Scheduling and Submitting Classroom Exams in the Testing Center


Important Dates to Remember

  • December 16 Online courses, Hybrid courses, & Large sections (100+) can schedule Spring exams.  

  • December 23 - Traditional courses can schedule Spring exams. (Please note that Classroom Testing will not be available for support with scheduling issues until January 2.)

  • January 6 - Spring Semester begins.

  • January 14 - CTC opens for Spring Semester.

  • April 20 - Final exams submission deadline.  Drop-off or submit online by 8:00 pm. 

Exam Submission Deadline

  • In order to start a test, the office must receive all materials by noon the business day before the start date.  If this deadline is missed, rescheduling the exam dates may be required, to give our office adequate time to process the exam into our inventory and tracking system.

Priority Scheduling

  • We have implemented a scheduling model to allow for Online courses, Hybrid courses, and Large sections (100+) to schedule exams 1 week earlier than traditional courses as they have the greatest need for physical resources. Traditional courses will also be able to schedule 1 week after the first tier of scheduling opens.

Scheduling Around Extended School Breaks

  • Exams cannot start before Fall break, Thanksgiving break, or Spring Break and end after the break concludes.  All running exams must end before the break starts.  Even if you are able to schedule spanning an extended school break in the Chi Tester system, you will be contacted and asked to adjust your testing dates accordingly.

Accommodative Scheduling

Testing accommodations can be provided for a student with documented disabilities by the UVU Office of Accessibility Services. To coordinate testing arrangements with the Accommodative Testing Center, students and faculty are required to arrange the following:


Accommodative Guidelines

  1. Exam Notification – Faculty members are encouraged to provide students with sufficient notice of exam dates.
  2. Appointment Scheduling – Students are responsible for scheduling an appointment to take their exam at least 24 business hours before the time the test is scheduled to begin. Students must know their class name, course number, teacher’s name, and what format the exam is running in (Paper or Computer).
  3. Exam Drop Off – It is the faculty’s responsibility to have the exam submitted via the online CHI database before the student’s scheduled test time. At the time of submission, faculty must indicate the name of the student and what testing aids are permitted to the student, if any. If the test is available in the Classroom Testing Center for the rest of the class, please have the student indicate that when they call in to schedule their appointment. In order to ensure test security, exams are only allowed to be submitted via the online CHI database.
  4. Fees – Students should be aware that if their test is available to the rest of the class at the Classroom Testing Center and they test on a Fee Day, they will still need to pay the $4.00 fee.
  5. Testing Day – Students should arrive at the Accommodative Testing Center at least 10 minutes before their appointment. Students are not allowed to bring any testing materials into the testing room except testing aids approved by their instructor. After a student has completed an exam, all test materials, testing aids, and scratch papers will be collected. If you are more than 15 minutes late to your appointment, your room reservation may be reassigned and you may be asked to reschedule your appointment.
  6. Return of Completed Exam – Faculty members are required to pick up the completed exam as soon as possible.

Submitting Accommodative Exams

  1. If you are already using the CTC for your entire class, you will not need to submit an additional exam for your accommodative student. Be aware however, your accommodative student will be required to test during the dates that the exam is available to your entire class. We advise submitting another exam if your accommodative student intends to test outside the regular class testing window.
  2. When submitting exams for accommodative students, be sure to indicate it as a 'Non-Standard' exam. You will then be given the option to label it as "Accommodative".
  3. Accommodative exams can be made available for up to 5 days.
  4. When preparing to upload exams, be sure to have your files in Word or PDF format.
  5. You will be given the option to drop exams off to our office, however you will still be required to complete the online submission steps in advance. You will be given the option to specify your delivery option at that time.
  6. All accommodative exams, regardless of the delivery method, must be uploaded or dropped off by noon the business day before the intended start date. This allows our staff time to prepare the material for your student.
