Schedule your Exam

How to make Arrangements for a Proctored Exam

1.Schedule an appointment with our office. You can do so by calling us at 812-237-9634 during our office hours. Please note that to schedule an appointment, we need to know the maximum length of the exam(s). We also need logistical details about the exam so that we can determine if our center is appropriately equipped to administer it. 
 
2.Inform the institution/organization who is providing your exam that you have scheduled an appointment with Indiana State University Testing Services. You should also provide them with our phone number, mailing address (see "Contact Info"), and e-mail address (testing@indstate.edu)  so that they can verify our ability to deliver the test and provide us with exam delivery instructions.
 
3.Your institution should then contact us and mail/e-mail any of the following items needed for your test:
  • any proctor pre-approval forms;
  • test information and guidelines;
  • candidate ID requirements;
  • instructions on how to return the exam (if applicable);
  • technology requirements (if applicable);
  • supplemental materials (if applicable);
  • exam password(s) (if applicable);
  • the exam itself (if paper & pencil).
4.Once we receive the exam and all required documentation, you are ready for test day. We ask that you call 24 hours before your appointment to verify that we have your test on file.
 
5.At this point, connect with your sponsoring institution to ensure that you have all required identification and documentation. If your test is to be returned via mail, and your institution is not providing a return envelope, be sure to bring a pre-paid envelope with you on test day.

Scantron Processing

In an effort to help ensure the safety of our students, faculty, staff and reduce the potential of transmission of COVID-19, University Testing is recommending that all faculty use Blackboard administered testing as a contact-less option.  While Blackboard administered testing is more convenient and time-efficient option at this time, if you still wish to use Scantrons services provided by University Testing, please note that there will be a 5 business day processing time from the point delivered to the University Testing Office. 

If you have any questions about these changes, please do not hesitate to contact University Testing at testing@indstate.edu or (812) 237- 9634.
