The LRC provides test proctoring services for students in College Preparatory & Development Studies (CPDS) courses. Test proctors are on site to distribute and store tests and to monitor the testing environment.

Services Offered

The Math Lab works with CPDS to administer tests for Math 054, 055, and 105. In addition to maintaining the integrity of the testing environment, test proctors also store graded tests in the Math Lab (SMH 126) so that students may review them.

Format of Service Delivery

The Math Lab provides you with a low stress testing environment. The lab seeks to maintain a space that is comfortable, has few distractions, and allows you to take tests at your own pace and at the time when you feel most prepared.

Tests can be taken in the Math Lab testing area any time during operating hours, but the LRC stops distribution of tests one hour prior to closing, and all tests are collected promptly at the scheduled closing time.  

Instructors subsequently pick up and grade their students’ tests, and tests are returned to the Math Lab. After your test is graded, you may also review your test and and ask tutors for clarification of concepts.

How to Prepare for Your Test

In order to have a less stressful testing experience, we encourage you to come prepared. The following tips will help you to prepare for your tutoring session:
