Testing Centre

The University of Lethbridge Testing Centre is a specialized computer lab used for secure online testing.  Not all courses make use of the testing centre, but many courses with Moodle Learning Management System content will require that you take your exams in the facility.  Students are encouraged to familiarize themselves with the location, operating hours, and procedures of the testing centre before they take their first exam.

Location

The Testing Centre will be relocated to the Library (room L950) for the summer of 2018 due to construction on University Hall. To get to L950, enter the Library at the main entrance and proceed one floor down to level 8 and to the west.

It's a good idea to start your exam with plenty of time to complete before the testing centre closes for the day.  Exams that are incomplete when the centre closes will be submitted automatically.   Plan ahead and give yourself lots of time just in case!

How to check in

Taking exams in the testing centre is easy!  The check-in procedure is as follows:

  1. Use the washroom if needed (bathroom breaks are not permitted)
  2. Place all personal items in one of the storage spaces
  3. Complete a sign-in form at the entrance desk
  4. Present your sign-in form and picture ID at the proctor desk
  5. Wait to be seated

The proctor will show you to a computer and enter the password for the exam you are taking.  You can use your sign-in sheet for scrap paper if you wish and additioal scrap paper can be provided at any time by the proctor.  If you have any problems while writing the exam, raise your hand and the proctor will come to assist you.

Once you have completed your exam, log out of Moodle and give your sign-in sheet to the desk proctor.  If you have used extra scrap paper, give it to the proctor as well (no written materials may leave the testing centre).

The testing centre staff will be happy to answer any questions you have and if you have any concerns about the testing centre or examination process, you can email help@uleth.ca or call the Solutions Centre at (403) 329-2490.
