Missed Class Test Guidelines

At the discretion of the faculty member, students have the opportunity to write a missed class test in the Test Centre

  1. It is the professor’s responsibility to book students for missed tests. Missed test bookings will not be accepted from students.
  2. Professors are to complete the invigilation form. Forms are available in the Test Centre office or on ICE (under forms).
  3. For students with approved accommodations through the Access and Support Centre (ASC) professors should indicate on the form (in space provided at the bottom) which accommodations are requested by that student for that test.
  4. Oshawa and Whitby Campus: All students are to be booked and write during an open session.
  5. Pickering learning site students can be booked Monday or Friday at 9 am or Wednesday at 3 pm. Invigilation forms must be delivered online and will not be accepted at the reception desk.
  6. Faculty should coordinate date with the student prior to submission to the test centre.  Testing begins at the start time as indicated on the calendar.
  7. More than 1 test can be booked per student per session as long as the total test duration does not exceed 3 hours.
