Academic Testing Center
The Academic Testing Center (ATC) is located next to the T/LC (Teaching Learning Center). ATC sits back into the wall so it easy to miss. When you enter the LLIC, keep looking to your right as you pass the T/LC Desk.
Guidelines for Delta College Students
The following guidelines have been developed for those Delta College students who are required or request to take their exams in the Academic Testing Center.
Pictured Identification--Pictured ID is required. A Delta student ID, passport and/or driver's license are acceptable forms of pictured ID. Unfortunately without a proper ID, test monitors are not allowed to issue any exam.
Restroom Breaks--It is advised that students take care of restroom stops before entering the exam area. Once an exam has been issued, test monitors are not allowed to have students leave and return to the testing room for any reason. Upon exiting the room, all testing material must be turned in. Instructors may provide special need students with waivers to this rule as needed. Documentation of waiver must accompany exam.
- Personal Items--Storage cabinets have been placed in the area for personal items including books, coats, and book bags while students are taking exams. Free storage units plus $.25 keyed lockers are available for students while taking exams in the ATC. Testing monitors are not responsible for personal items left in the area. NOTE: No CELL PHONES (or other listening devices), COATS, GLOVES, HATS, FOOD, OR DRINKS can be taken into the testing room.
Unattended Children--Children are not allowed in the room used for testing.
Quiet Please--One of the purposes of the Academic Testing Center is to provide you with a quiet, undisturbed environment. Please take special care as you arrive and leave to maintain that quiet atmosphere. Standing outside the testing room to talk to other students entering and exiting the area is prohibited.
Testing Material--Your instructor will tell you the items you must provide to take a test. They will specify if pen or pencil is to be used, or if you must provide a scantron, NCS answer sheet, or Blue Book. Testing monitors are not allowed to change any part of the instructor’s directions or requirements. A limited number of calculators, colored pencils, and rulers are available for students to borrow. Your picture ID will be held to secure the return of any borrowed item.
Process--After seeing your picture ID, the monitor will log your name into the database. The monitor does have the authority to tell you where to sit. Students should never sit next to another student taking the same exam. After you have completed the exam, you must return it to the test monitor.
Violation of Rules--If a student violates the directions established by an instructor, or the guidelines of the ATC, the monitor has the right to collect the exam early: for example, if the directions say "no class notes" but you have your notes out. If the monitor asks for your exam early, please turn in your exam and leave. The monitor will inform the instructor. Any further discussion should be directed to your instructor, not to the testing monitor.
Closing Time--If you come to take a test during the evening hours, understand that you must complete your test by the scheduled closing time. Students will be given a 5 minute warning. Exams are collected 15 minutes before the official closure of the Library Learning Information Center (LLIC).
