Did you know the Alexandria Testing Center offers proctoring services for some 26 community colleges that make up the Virginia Community College System?  We have many students that take classes online or actually in the classroom environment from other schools.  Oftentimes these students aren’t able to travel to their host school for exams, this is  where we step in and assist.  Visit our webpage and review the guidelines for having an exam proctored at the Alexandria Testing Center.  We could save you time, gas and $$$!

First 6 Weeks Ending

Congratulations your First 6-weeks session is coming to an end.  Take this time to organize your notes, contact instructors to ensure you haven’t missed any assignments, and form your study groups.

 

Tips

On test taking day:

  • Multiple-choice: Don’t rush. On multiple-choice items, force yourself to read each possible choice carefully before selecting an answer. Remember, some choices appear correct at first glance but tum out to be wrong when you take a closer look. When in doubLguess! If the test does not penalize guessing, be sure that you write in a response for each test item, even if you don’t know the answer.
  • Skip difficult items until last. On timed tests, you should avoid getting bogged down on difficult items that can cause you to use up all of your time. Instead, when you find yourself stumped on a tough test item, skip it and go on to other problems. After you have finished all of the easiest test items, you can return to any skipped questions and try to answer them. 14. Use leftover time to check answers.
