ACADEMIC TESTING

SERVICE UPDATES FOR SPRING 2023 (Effective January 09, 2023)

For Spring 2023, the Testing Center will offer the following services for University of Hawaii System students taking classes at other University of Hawaii campuses. All tests are conducted in-person and by appointment only. The Testing Center does not support remote proctoring. With the uncertainties of the pandemic, we recommend having a backup assessment plan in place.

Supported test types are listed by class modality:

Class Modality Supported Test Types
Face-to-Face (F2F)
  • Online tests only (Laulima, Pearson, etc).
  • Make-Up tests (online and paper tests).
  • Students with testing accommodations (online and paper tests).

Distance Education, including:
Distance - Completely Online (DCO)*
Distance - Cable TV (DTV)
Distance - Interactive Video (DIV)
  • Make Up Tests (online and paper tests).
  • Students with testing accommodations (online and paper tests).

* Per University of Hawai'i system memo, May 7, 2021, subject: Instructional Method Codes, for DCO classes the "student is never required to visit campus or a UH site (e.g. for testing...)".


NEW: Same / Next Day Make Up Testing Services

“Academic Tests - Same / Next Day Make Up” services are available only to those students who need to “make up” a missed exam right away. Appointments are required. Students who do not meet the criteria for make-up testing should schedule using the regular “Academic Tests” category instead.

IMPORTANT: To ensure a smooth testing experience and avoid unnecessary delays, instructors using the same / next day make up testing option should submit their test materials to the Testing Center before your student(s) come in.

INFORMATION FOR INSTRUCTORS

  • Submit your proctoring forms / test materials to the testing center at least 3 days (or more) prior to the student's test date.
  • After test materials have been submitted, your student may schedule their appointment online at http://www.registerblast.com/Kapiolani.
  • Appointments may be cancelled or re-scheduled if there are no test materials on file at least 3 days (or more) prior to student's test date.

PROCTOR U INFORMATION

Kapiʻolani Community College has an agreement with ProctorU to provide online proctoring services that may be more convenient for students. Some classes may offer this option of having tests proctored online at a small cost to the student.

The cost (per test) is based on THREE variables:

  • The length of the exam
  • The type of service (Auto or Live+) - which is determined by the instructor
  • How far ahead of time a student schedules their exam

Please contact your instructor to determine if this service is available for your course exams.
