Proctored testing is required for most distance learning courses. Test descriptions and testing timelines
are provided by your instructor. Check your course syllabus for details.
Check proctor availability at your location prior to enrolling in courses.
Determine days and times testing can be conducted.
Ask about any costs for proctoring. These are your responsibility.
Finalize your proctor arrangements no later than the first week of class.
If you change locations during a class, repeat this process.
Failure to act in an appropriate manner at the testing facility may result in disciplinary action.
It is your responsibility to identify a test proctor prior to or during the first week of class. A proctor may already be in place depending on your location.
Unless you will be using the Central Campus testing center or a designated GoArmyEd test site, you will need to provide your proctor's contact information to the CTC Testing Office using the Test Proctor Submission Form.
If approved by the Testing Office and your instructor, your test proctor will be notified and provided access information to administer your tests. To check the status of your Test Proctor Submission Form, please contact the CTC Testing Office at email@example.com.
In the event that you relocate or need to change your testing location, notify the CTC Testing Office prior to attempting to take a test, by resubmitting the Test Proctor Submission Form.
When you go to take your test, bring a photo ID, and know the name of the course (example: HIST 1301), your instructor, and which exam you are taking (example: Test 2, Midterm). Know the requirements and restrictions as described in your course syllabus, such as time limit and whether or not any references or resources are permitted.
Questions, changes to test proctor information/location, and test accessibility issues should be directed to the CTC Online Testing Office.
Students must take a placement exam before enrolling in a college-level mathematics, and take both the multiple choice and essay portions of the placement exam to place into ENGL 1301 Composition course. These exams are available online and may be taken in a proctored situation. Please refer to the information listed above to submit a Test Proctor Submission Form.
For interpretation of your placement exam scores, please contact the Online Mentors at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 254-526-1296 or 1-800-792-3348 extension 1296.
Special Note: The CTC online placement exams do not satisfy the Texas Success Initiative requirements. See below.
Texas Success Initiative (TSI)
Distance learners who physically reside in Texas or are bona fide Texas residents eligible to pay in-state tuition rates must satisfy the TSI requirements unless TSI exempt or TSI waived. Students who are not exempt must take an approved TSI assessment prior to starting coursework at CTC. The CTC online placement exams cannot be used for this purpose.
