Faculty

Submitting Exams

As a means of helping to ensure exam security, we ask that you please communicate directly with the testing center(s) of your choice for exam delivery.
Union: uniontc@eastcentral.edu or 636.584.6124
Rolla: rollatc@eastcentral.edu or 573.466.4076

Faculty may email their completed ECC Testing Center Exam Cover Sheet  and exam materials to the appropriate testing center. Please make sure to include your departmental copy code for paper exams.

For accuracy and security purposes, paper and electronic exams will each require one cover sheet and one roster reflecting students who will be taking the exam. Both will remain with the Testing Center. The cover sheet will serve as a communication device between faculty and the Testing Center, and the roster will aid Testing Center staff in making sure all exams are accounted for from start to end date.

If the Testing Center receives exam materials before 12 p.m., then the exam will be available the following business day at 7:30 a.m. If exam materials are received after 12 p.m., then the exam will be available the following business day at noon.

Exceptions to this policy may apply. If you have questions, please contact the Associate Director at kristin.milligan@eastcentral.edu or the Testing Services Coordinator at windy.souders@eastcentral.edu.

Retrieving Exams

The Testing Center asks that faculty or designated persons refrain from picking up exams before the end date.

Please pick up exams at the indicated return location(s) on the cover sheet. If you are unable to come to the Union Testing Center yourself, please feel free to send a designated person (program clerk, faculty member) to pick up your exams or contact the Union Testing Center for other accommodations.

At the end of each semester, the Testing Center will purge testing files and any unclaimed exams will be filed and held until the end of the following semester.

Exam Administration

To provide documented recognition of faculty’s exam time limits, all paper exams will be time stamped. Electronic exams are automatically documented online. As a second record, all students’ exams and times, paper and electronic, will continue to be tracked though TutorTrac. Please note, students will be responsible for adhering to the designated time limit.

The Testing Center is designed to administer exams on an individual basis. It is not intended to take the place of classroom testing, and as such, only courses that have no scheduled classroom and/or meeting time are permitted to schedule every exam in the Testing Center.

If your student(s) require special accommodations, such as a reader or scribe, arrangements must be made through the ACCESS office prior to the student taking the exam.

If a student is caught with unauthorized material or engaging in dishonest behavior, Testing Center personnel will

  1. Notify the student of prohibited material s/he is using.
  2. Ask for the student to surrender any prohibited materials.
  3. Allow the student to finish the test and tell the student that the instructor will be notified.
  4. Contact the instructor as soon as possible.
  5. File a formal incident report.

The last test will be administered an hour before close, meaning students are sitting in their seat, so please encourage students to allow ten minutes before to check in for their exam.

Grading of Exams

Testing Center personnel will not be responsible for grading exams.
