DISTANCE LEARNING

Distance Learning Exams for Other Schools and Organizations

The IRSC Assessment Services Department is glad to proctor exams from other schools or organizations. Indian River State College offers proctoring services for both online and paper/pencil examinations. We receive exams from other institutions by mail, email or fax.

Indian River State College charges $40.00 per exam for our proctoring services and this fee must be paid to the IRSC Cashier prior to testing. The cashier’s office closes sharply at 6:30 PM, so please plan accordingly. They will accept your payment in cash, check or credit card. To take your exam, you will need to bring your receipt and photo ID to the Assessment Center. A valid photo ID is required for all exams taken at Indian River State College. Acceptable forms of identification include a valid driver’s license, a state or government issued photo ID, a college photo ID, or a passport. If an ID has an expiration date, it is no longer valid after that date. Also, once an ID is broken into more than one piece or has been cut, it is no longer valid. No electronic devices are permitted in the testing room. It is strongly recommended that you do not bring your cell phone to the testing room.

Our regular hours of operation during the fall and spring semesters for all of our Assessment Centers are Monday through Thursday 8:00 AM to 8:30 PM and Friday 8:00 AM to 2:30 PM. During the summer semesters we are closed on Friday. All exams must be completed by closing time and no appointments are required. However, you should call at least two business days in advance of your testing date to confirm that we have received your exam and the proctoring directions.

Listed below is the contact information of our Assessment Centers at each of our branch campuses. Students must have their exam sent directly to the campus where they want to test. We will not send exams from campus to campus. Please coordinate with your school to ensure that the exams are sent to the appropriate IRSC campus.

Placement Information

GET OFF TO A GREAT START WITH THE CLASSES BEST FOR YOU COLLEGE PLACEMENT TESTING

Be prepared for success! IRSC encourages you to take advantage of college placement testing to enroll in classes most appropriate for your skill levels.

According to Florida Statutes, some degree-seeking students are required to take a College Placement Test, while others are exempt. In any case, taking the college placement test is a good idea!

Who is exempt?

  • Students who entered 9th grade in a Florida public school in the 2003-2004 school year or after and earned a Florida standard high school diploma, or students serving as an active duty member of any branch of the United States Armed Services are exempt. Students must provide official high school transcripts or documentation of military status to be exempt. However, all students are strongly encouraged to complete College Placement Testing.

Who is required to complete College Placement Testing?

  • All other degree-seeking students are required to take acceptable placement tests such as the P.E.R.T (Postsecondary Education Readiness Test).

    Specific math, reading and English scores are used for placement purposes. See Placement Information for P.E.R.T., CPT.

IRSC provides you with a wide range of academic support services, such as free tutoring in Academic Support Centers at each campus, to help you succeed in college.

Please contact your academic advisor to assess your readiness for college-level course work and to finalize your personal student success plan.

TABE 11 and 12 Testing for Career Training Programs

Reading subtest – 120 minutes
Language subtest – 60 minutes
Math subtest – 75 minutes
We strongly suggest that students only take one subtest per day.

Please note, the TABE is not administered during final exams.

Taking the Test

An Indian River State College student identification number is required for testing and will be issued once an IRSC application is completed at www.irsc.edu or at any IRSC campus. Additionally, a valid photo ID (not expired cut, broken or taped) is required.

Calculator

There is a calculator built into the TABE testing system. It will automatically “pop up” if the question allows the use of a calculator. However, personal or handheld calculators are not permitted.

Test Results

TABE scores can be obtained in person with photo identification at any ASC. Allow one working day for scores to be processed. There is no charge for a student copy of a TABE score report. TABE scores are automatically entered in the College computer system (Workday) and are available for College departments to view.

Retesting

TABE results are valid for two (2) years. You may retest during that time under the following circumstances:

  • If you have completed a TABE prescription (see below).
    You will be given a practice review test in the Academic Support Center (ASC) to determine if you are ready to retest.
  • If you have taken courses or reviewed skills elsewhere, you are required to provide official documentation to the Assessment Services Manager.

If your scores do not meet those required for your particular program or job, you may request to have a prescription prepared for skills review. After you submit your request, allow one business day for your prescription to be prepared.

Once you successfully complete all prescribed materials, including assigned tests, you will be approved for retesting by an ASC instructor. THERE ARE NO SHORTCUTS TO SUCCESS.

If you have a program deadline (scores must be submitted by a specific date), ALLOW ENOUGH TIME TO COMPLETE YOUR PRESCRIPTION. The amount of time required to complete your prescription will vary according to its length.
