Placement testing is an important component of the student’s experience at Monroe Community College. The placement testing staff strive to promote an environment where testing occurs in a safe and confidential setting in order to maximize each learner’s potential to succeed and maintain testing standards.
Every effort will be made to accommodate students who need to take the placement test at Monroe Community College. In some cases, students who live more than 60 miles away from MCC can request testing at a pre-approved off-campus site.
If you live over 60 miles away, please follow these steps to find a proctor in your area:
Identify either a local high school guidance office, a local community or four-year college and contact the director of the testing, counseling or career development office of the institution.
Explain to your contact person that you are taking an ACCUPLACERplacement exam for Monroe Community College. Ask about a proctor to administer your placement exam (some colleges refer to this as “courtesy testing”) and to determine if the test center personnel are willing to administer the ACCUPLACER tests in their testing center. It is not necessary for that college to be a user of ACCUPLACER.
• Familiar with accepted practices for administering standardized tests
• Has no vested interest in the student’s scores
• Is not related to the student
• Is employed by an educational institution
Once you have located an off-campus testing site willing to proctor your placement test:
Complete the Off Campus Placement Testing Request Form
and submit your request to the Placement Testing Services Center at least two weeks in advance of when you would like to sit for the placement test. It is the student’s responsibility to find a test proctor and location. The proctor will then fax the agreement to the Placement Testing Services Center. Once the agreement is received (please allow 7 business days for processing), placement testing staff will coordinate with the proctor a time-limited password to safeguard the test.
WE WILL BEGIN ACCEPTING OFF CAMPUS REQUESTS FOR SPRING 2014 ON SEPTEMBER 23, 2013
