Testing for Online Classes

How might testing for an online class differ from an in-person class?

The instructor teaching the online class defines how tests are administered.  An online class from IVCC could require "proctored" exams, which require you to make arrangements to take tests in-person in the IVCC Assessment Center, or the instructor may require the use of specialized software or hardware.  Specifically, the online testing software IVCC uses is called Respondus Lockdown Browser and taking a test in an online class may require the use of a microphone and a webcam, also know as Respondus Monitor.

Proctored Exams

If your class requires proctored exams, testing appointments are required.

Proctored exams can be taken at the Assessment Center on the main campus or at the Ottawa Center. If you are unable to come to IVCC for proctored exams you may be eligible to make arrangements at another college or a university near you.  IVCC does not charge IVCC students to take proctored exams at an IVCC location. However, another college or a university may charge IVCC students to take exams in their testing centers.
