WCJC Instructor Examinations and Tests

The WCJC Testing Centers provide proctoring services for WCJC students who require ADA accommodations that cannot be fulfilled in the classroom. This service is free of charge for WCJC students.

Instructors must complete an Instructor Exam Form each time a student tests at a WCJC Testing Center. It is the instructor's responsibility to include information about the student's accommodations on the form.

Due to the high volume of students that WCJC Offices of Disability Services and Testing Services assists, the following student guidelines have been established to assist ADA students, faculty, and staff. These guidelines are in effect at all campus locations.

  1. All students must make their own testing appointments after communicating with their instructor.
  2. Students should contact the appropriate Testing Center on the campus of the class to schedule an appointment 48 business hours in advance of the day of the test. The Testing Center numbers are:  Wharton and Bay City (979-532-6386); Sugar Land (281-243-8434); Richmond (281-239-1532).  Students may also make an appointment in-person at the appropriate center.
  3. Testing Center personnel are not aware of students' accommodation requirements other than what is specified on the Instructor Exam Form, which is based on the information provided on the ADA Action Request. Students should verify the accommodations for testing are correct. Students may bring a copy of the ADA Action Request email to their testing appointment.
  4. If the Testing Center is unable to provide approved accommodations, students should contact the Office of Disability Services (disabilityservice@wcjc.edu ) as soon as possible.
  5. Testing appointments are scheduled on a space, time, and day availability basis and also depend on the student’s schedule and accommodation(s). It may not be possible for a student to test during the regular class time. Testing appointments should not interfere with other class times.
  6. If a student is late by more than 10 minutes, he/she may be unable to test on the same day.
  7. Students must contact the Testing Center 24 hours in advance of missing an appointment. Tests may be rescheduled only with instructor/faculty member approval. Note that leniency of absences is an approved accommodation only in some very rare situations with documented chronic medical conditions. Most classes do not allow make-up exams.
  8. Students must complete testing within the scheduled appointment time window. Testing time starts at the beginning of the scheduled testing appointment window. When time is up, students must surrender test documents to the Testing personnel.
  9. Any student caught cheating on their test will have their testing materials removed immediately and the instructor/faculty member will be notified.
  10. All ADA students should be prepared to present photo ID (driver license, state ID, recent student ID, passport) to Testing personnel at each testing appointment.  Students will be required to store all personal items and will only be allowed to bring in items specified on the Instructor Exam Form.  Students are not allowed to leave the testing room once they have started an exam unless breaks are allowed per the Instructor Exam Form.

Faculty guidelines for coordinating ADA testing appear below.

  1. All students must make their own appointments after communicating with their faculty member.
  2. Faculty members must bring the test to the testing location and/or Testing Center 24 hours prior to the time of the exam.  Faculty members must complete the Instructor Exam Form and identify the accommodations that are to be provided based on the ADA Action Request received from the Office of Disability Services.
  3. Testing Center personnel are not aware of students' accommodation requirements.  Faculty must specify accommodations on the Instructor Exam Form based on the information provided on the ADA Action Request.
  4. If the Testing Center is unable to provide requested accommodations, please contact the Office of Disability Services (disabilityservice@wcjc.edu ) as soon as possible.
  5. Testing appointments are scheduled on a space, time, and day availability basis and also depend on the student’s schedule and accommodation(s).  It may not be possible for a student to test during the regular class time.
  6. If a student is late by more than 10 minutes, they may be unable to test on the same day.
  7. Students should be instructed to contact the Testing Center and/or the Office of Disability Services 24 hours in advance of missing an appointment.  Tests may be rescheduled only with instructor/faculty member approval.  Note that leniency of absences may be an approved accommodation in some rare situations.
  8. Students must complete testing within the scheduled appointment time window.  Once time is called, students must surrender test documents to the Testing personnel.
  9. Any student caught cheating on their test will have their testing materials removed immediately and the instructor/faculty member will be notified.
  10. Students should be instructed to contact the Testing Center in Wharton (979-532-6386), or the Testing Center in Sugar Land (281-243-8434), or Richmond (281-239-1532) to schedule an appointment 48 hours in advance of the day of the test.

The WCJC Testing Centers will also proctor make-up exams for WCJC students, within a reasonable number per instructor.  An Instructor Exam Form is also required for make-up exams.  Make-up exams will not be administered on Saturdays.  The WCJC Testing Centers do not proctor retests or exams for a whole or partial class.
