Testing Center

Summer Testing Center Rules & FAQs

Q. Where is the testing center?

A. During the summer, the testing center’s location changes. When you click on the sign-up link, you will be shown the location of the test. There are no drop-in visits allowed. Please see the relevant section listed below to schedule your test.

Q. What are the hours I can access the testing center?

A. During summer, the hours are variable with no drop-in visits allowed. You must sign-up in advance to take a test with us.

  1. Once you begin a test, you must finish it. We do not have the ability to reopen or extend your tests on another day once you have seen the test.
  2. No cell phones of any kind may be used during any test. Calculators and scratch paper can be provided for your use, if allowed. Phones and other electronics must be surrendered or left at home while you are in the testing center.
  3. Talking and disruptive behaviors will not be tolerated and you may be asked to leave, forfeiting your ability to complete a test. If that happens, whatever work you have done will be scored unless cheating is suspected.
  4. Cheating – LGHS academic integrity policy will be enforced. In addition, if taking an online class, the online instructors will be notified of any suspected cheating and their policies will also be in effect.
  5. No other tabs or other browsers may be open other than the one in use for your exam, if your exam is online.  


Incomplete Grades

Q. My teacher has agreed to issue me an “Incomplete” for his/her class so that I have extra time to complete a quiz, test or final exam. How can I access my test?

A. Sign up to take your test here. When you sign up, be sure that you indicate what teacher/test you are planning to take so that we can be sure we have it. If we do not have your test, we will not be able to contact your teacher during the summer, so you’ll need to wait until fall to take your test. Be sure to give yourself ample time when signing up. For example, if you know you’ll need (and are allowed) 2 hours for a final exam, don’t sign up for an 11:00 am testing time if we close at 12:00. Once you start your exam you will be required to complete it in the time allowed by your teacher and within the open hours of the testing center.

Apex Testing

Q. I’m enrolled in a class with Apex and I’ve already chosen “Kim Burlinson” as my mentor. What do I do next?

A. As soon as you are sent your login information, you are ready to begin your course. Please go through the recommended tutorials and keep in mind that Apex has the same academic integrity standards as the teachers at your high school. Your online instructor is there to help you with content questions and to help you navigate through Apex. You and encouraged to contact them through the Apex messaging center. You can work on all your assignments and quizzes at home but you must go to the testing center to take a test.

 

Q. I am ready to take my Apex test. What do I do?

A. Sign up to take your test here, but keep in mind the following information:

  1. If you are working ahead of your due dates (which is fine to do) your tests will not be available until 3 days before your due date. If this happens, email your online instructor to request that they simply change the due date for the assignment so that you can take your test early.
  2. Each test has 2 parts which you can take on the same day or different days. There is an online multiple choice section (CST for Computer Scored Test) and a free response section (TST for Teacher Scored Test). Both tests have the same due date that you will want to be sure you keep in mind.
  3. Any test you begin, you must finish in the same seating. We cannot reset or reassign a test. You may not use notes on tests. If you think you need more than 60 minutes to complete your test, please sign up for an additional testing time.


Q. I failed a test or am having trouble with the content. What should I do?

A. Email your online instructor for help. They are real people and want you to be successful! They often have synchronous sessions, discussion forums and links to web tutorials that they can share with you.
