OC Testing NOTICES for INSTRUCTORS:

FORMS-
all of the current quarter OC Testing information for Bremerton, Shelton and Poulsbo Testing Centers are available at X:\Shared Documents and Forms\Testing Center or at the Bremerton Assessment & Testing Center.  Please save for future use.  A Make-Up and Access Testing Support form must accompany all test materials delivered to the Testing Centers and must be fully completed by the instructor (including Time Limit, Materials Allowed, Return Preference, Deadline, and any other Instructions). We will request this completed if it is not sent with a test, or if the form does not include complete instructions. Avoid delays by having the fully completed form accompany all tests sent to us.

TESTING APPOINTMENTS-Remember that appointments for OC Make-Up and Access Testing are REQUIRED for Shelton and Poulsbo and can be set up by emailing ahead.  Bremerton offers Walk-In Make-Up Testing, and all Access Testing is done by Appointment.  Procedure for Students approved by Access Services for Testing Accommodations: The students will contact the Testing Center to set an appointment. They will pick up the Access Testing Support form. It is their responsibility to get this form back to the instructor, who should complete the form, attach the test materials and return the test packet to the Testing Center prior to the student’s test appointment date/time.

DELIVERY & RETURN- Testing materials can be delivered to the Testing Center by email, campus mail, fax or dropping off in person. The Bremerton Testing Center also has an After-Hours Drop Box in the hallway outside HSS222. This box is checked each morning before the office opens at 9:00a for tests that may have been dropped off after closing time the previous day. See “Printing Requests” below about test materials that are emailed to the Testing Centers.  OC Testing materials can only be returned to instructors by Campus Mail, not U.S.Mail or by fax or email.  We can also hold test materials in the office for Pick Up in Person.

TIME MANAGEMENT- When sending testing materials to the Testing Center(s), please allow ample time for processing; keep in mind that only Bremerton is staffed five days/week. Although this office can process Same-Day/Right-Away Make-Up Testing, we do ask that you allow some lead time before the student’s planned arrival for testing.

PRINTING REQUESTS and Defaults
COLOR-Please route all tests to Duplicating and request Delivery to the Testing Center if test documents will require color printing.
VOLUME-if test materials will require multiple copies for a list of several students or if test materials are more than 10 pages, please. Please plan ahead to allow time for printing and campus mail delivery.
PRINTING DEFAULT-we will print all emailed tests as double-sided documents. If you need to have your test printed single-sided, you should route it to Duplicating for printing and request delivery to the Testing Center.
