Testing Procedures — Be Prepared

Students With Disabilities: Our Assessment Centers provide reasonable testing accommodations for students with disabilities. For more information please contact IRSC Student Accessibility Services.

Right-Arrow  Step #1

Bring a valid photo ID to the testing center.

A valid photo ID is required for all exams taken at Indian River State College. Acceptable forms of identification include:

  • Current driver license with photo
  • Current Federal, State, County or Municipality issued ID with photo (includes U.S. Military ID)
  • Current Alien Registration Card (Green Card) with photo
  • Current Passport with recent photo
  • U.S. Passport Card
  • Current High School ID
  • Current Indian River State College ID card

If an ID has an expiration date, it is no longer valid after that date. Also, once an ID is broken into more than one piece or has been cut, it is no longer valid. An ID printed on paper, photo paper or cardboard cannot be accepted for testing.

Right-Arrow  Step #2

Know the name of the test you need to take. If you are taking an exam for an “Online” or “On Campus” course, know your instructor’s name and the name of the course.

Right-Arrow  Step #3

Bring all required testing materials with you (i.e. Gordon rule book, Scantron, textbooks, calculator, pencils, etc.). Check with your instructor to see what allowable aids are permitted.

Right-Arrow  Step #4

Follow all testing regulations.  

  • Cell phones and all electronic devices (MP3 players, etc.) must be turned completely off in the testing room and waiting area. During testing, cell phones and all other electronic devices must not be visible. However, we recommend that you not bring cell phones or any other unapproved electronic devices to the Assessment Centers.
  • Comply with requests from Assessment Center proctors in a respectful manner.
  • Provide a valid and current photo ID—preferably a driver license or an IRSC ID. Broken or expired photo ID’s are not acceptable. Tests cannot be administered without a valid and current photo ID.
  • Be aware of the Assessment Center hours of operation. Exams must be completed in one sitting by closing time. Breaks are not permitted.
  • Leave your children with a caretaker. No children are permitted in the testing room or waiting area.
  • Hand the completed test and all scrap paper to the testing personnel.
  • Place books and other materials in the designated area.
  • Hats and sunglasses must be removed while in the testing room.
  • Testing computers are only to be used for taking exams. Do not visit other websites, check your email or use non-testing programs.
  • Sit in the seat that you are assigned by the proctor.
  • Refrain from talking to anyone other than the proctor once you are seated.
  • Food and drinks are not permitted in the Assessment Center or check-in area.

Remember, Academic dishonesty is unacceptable conduct and WILL NOT be tolerated in any form!

Academic Dishonesty is a broad category including, but not limited to the following:

  1. PLAGIARISM: copying another person’s words, written or verbal, and representing them as one’s own.
  2. CHEATING: intentionally using or attempting to use unauthorized materials, electronic devices (including cell phones), information, people, websites, software or study aids, or extending to or receiving any kind of unauthorized assistance to or from another person on any examination.
  3. STEALING: the unethical use of or distribution of secured exam questions (with or without answers).
  4. TIME LIMIT VIOLATIONS: continuing an exam after the allotted time has expired.

Any Academic Dishonesty activity may result in disciplinary actions as outlined in the Student Standards of Conduct printed in the Indian River State Student Handbook/Planner. Disciplinary actions may include, but are not limited to the following:

  1. For standardized exams (e.g., GED, P.E.R.T., TABE, CLEP, or NLN) additional disciplinary and/or criminal actions may be taken by the state-wide or nation-wide organization responsible for creating the exam.
  2. Failing an exam and/or course.
  3. Suspension or expulsion from a specific program or from Indian River State College.
  4. The privilege to complete an exam or retest may be delayed or forfeited.

Proactive Strategies to Protect Yourself from Charges of Academic Dishonesty

  1. Prepare thoroughly for examinations and assignments.
  2. Take the initiative to prevent other students from copying your exam or assignments. (i.e. shield your answer sheet during examinations and do not lend completed assignments to other students)
