The eLearning OHIO Testing Center moved from Haning Hall to the Lower Level of Bromley Hall at the beginning of January. Students who need to take proctored examinations for online and print-based courses should enter the testing center from the Bromley Hall entrance on West Union Street.
More changes are in store for the testing center. Along with the move to a new building, the testing center has merged with the Educational Testing Center to become OHIO Testing Services, which later this year will be located in one facility. OHIO Testing Services offers proctored examinations, proctoring coordination for off-campus students, and educational testing administration to the Ohio University community. OHIO Testing Services is managed by eLearning OHIO.
“We are excited about the new opportunity presented by combining proctoring services with the services that have been offered by the Educational Testing Center,” said Deb Gearhart, vice provost for eLearning and strategic partnerships.
Gearhart said having one centralized testing facility will ensure consistent testing practices and allow the center’s staff to better meet students’ needs.
The Educational Testing Center was previously part of the Office of Information Technology. The educational testing group will continue to administer computer-based educational tests, such as the GRE General Test and the TOEFL.
Educational testing will continue to be housed in the Computer Services Center on President Street until the second phase of the testing center renovation is completed in Bromley Hall. Those services are expected to move to Bromley during the summer.
