Mission Statement

The University Test Center (UTC) is a campus facility that helps both faculty and students with their testing needs. We provide a proctored, secure, quiet, relaxing environment for test takers. When the exam is completed we grade the multiple choice and provide in depth exam analysis for faculty. Our facility gives the option for faculty to set up a multi-day testing window which gives faculty more lecture time and allows students to organize their own test taking schedules.  We are determined to give both faculty and students the most efficient and relaxing form of testing available.

Faculty

Exam Set Up Procedure:

  • At the beginning of the semester complete the Semester Schedule Request form listing all exams you would like the UTC to proctor (approximate dates are fine) This is what ensures your class a spot during busy times. You can send this form to testcenters@csufresno.edu

 

  • Inform your students of the UTC procedures and the operational hours during your testing period. A rules form for your students is available below.

 

  • The UTC can only provide Scantron forms for multiple-choice exams. Other forms or materials are not provided (i.e. bluebooks, exam booklets, alternate Scantron forms, etc.).We DO NOT make copies of exams. However, we can proctor exams utilizing those materials.

 

  • Complete a UTC Testing Cover Sheet and UTC Scantron Answer Key (if applicable) for each scheduled exam. The Scantron Answer Key may be sent to your campus mailbox or you can pick them up in our office.

Drop off Cover Sheet and exam booklets at the Test Center by 3pm the day BEFORE the exam is scheduled to begin.(Faculty forms are available at the links below.)

IMPORTANT WHEN FILLING IN ANSWER SHEET:

  • Use number 2 pencils ONLY
  • DO NOT skip any numbers. (Scanner will stop reading the scantron once a number is skipped)
  • Fill out 1 bubble per question. Multiple bubbles per question are automatically marked wrong.
  • Deliver all needed testing materials (testing cover sheet, copies of the exam, answer key if applicable, etc.) to the University Testing Center. Materials are needed by 3pm the day BEFORE your exam begins. (Same day drop offs will not be accepted) Any exams received after 3:00 pm will not be available for students to test until one full business day later. Final week drop off policies are different (See Below)
  • Completed exams can be picked up by you or a designated individual (i.e. graduate assistant, department staff, etc.) the following business day. The UTC staff must know who this individual is and they must show proper, picture ID upon pick-up of your exams. We do not return any exams via campus mail.
