Testing Services

Wayne Campus Individual Make-Up Exams

Testing Services proctors paper-based or online classroom exams to individual students of the University of Akron/Wayne College. If a student was unable to complete an exam with the rest of the class, please refer to the following policies and procedures: 

    • Students call 330-684-8960 to schedule an appointment. We cannot guarantee availability to proctor an exam without an appointment. When a student arrives to their appointment, they must present a valid photo ID before testing. 

    • Instructors are to complete the on-campus proctor sheet and send to Smucker Learning & Testing Center with test so we can proctor according to your instructions. A proctor sheet must be submitted with your exam or staff will be unable to proctor according to your guidelines. 

    • Proctored exams for University of Akron/Wayne College courses are free.


Wayne Campus Group Classroom Exams

Testing Services may provide paper-based or online group testing to assist instructors at the University of Akron/Wayne College, if alternative resources within academic department do not exist to meet this need.  

Group testing refers to any situation in which an instructor requests our proctoring services for multiple students in a class, or for an entire class. These policies and procedures do not apply to an individual student’s need for separate testing conditions (e.g. accommodated testing requests through the Office of Accessibility; make-up testing for an individual that missed class due to illness, emergency, or excused event). 

We require at least 14 days’ notice in advance of test date or window to determine feasibility of managing request. Submitting a request for group testing does not guarantee that this service can be provided, and honoring the request is contingent on resources, availability, and existing service needs during desired test window. For further information or questions about procedures, please contact Chris Dreher, Manager of Smucker Learning & Testing Center at cdc@uakron.edu. Please complete and submit the Request for Group Testing form.
