You will most likely have weekly assignments due along with weekly participation expectations for discussion and collaboration through the entire semester.

On the Jamestown Campus, no appointment is necessary, but students must begin their test one hour before the Assessment Center closes.  Students must make appointments for proctoring at the Greensboro or High Point campus locations.

Out-Of-State Students: See the Information For Out-Of-State Students page. 

Information for Instructors

Instructors should clearly indicate proctored assessments on the course syllabus along with date ranges for completion of these assessments. Instructors should refer students to this site or to the Assessment Center for help making proctoring arrangements if students do not plan to complete the assessment at a GTCC location.

For on-campus assessments, instructors should fill out a Faculty Testing Instruction Form and submit it and the assessment to the Assessment Center at least 24 hours before the start of the assessment period.

For off-campus assessments, instructors should e-mail or fax the assessment and instructions to the designated proctor, along with any other information or materials.

Information for Students

Let your instructor know in advance if you need to make arrangements to complete an assessment somewhere other than GTCC. If a non-GTCC proctor is needed, it is the student’s responsibility to make arrangements and secure a testing appointment. Once the student has completed the Request for Proctor Form, and submitted it to the Assessment Center, it will be forwarded on to their instructor and the instructor will then communicate their proctoring and testing instructions to the non-GTCC proctor. Any fees that are associated with using non-GTCC proctors are the responsibility of the student.
