Placement Testing

Placement guidelines are used to identify which courses students should take first.  These guidelines help prevent students from enrolling in courses which are either too difficult or too easy.  All incoming students are required to take placement testing.  For more information, visit the Placement Testing webpage.

Testing Centers

Testing Services provides a secure, equitable and professional testing environment for accommodated testing to support Oregon Tech students registered with Disability Services and those who need to schedule a make-up exam. 

Tests must be scheduled the day prior to Testing Services administering the exam/quiz.

About Exam Proctoring

Oregon Institute of Technology is proud to offer you the opportunity to take your online exams at home with online proctoring. Using a webcam and a reliable high-speed internet connection, you can take your exams anywhere.  You will need to download Respondus in advance.

  • Respondus Lockdown Browser - You will use this browser to take quizzes/tests that have the requirement indicated. When you open the Respondus Browser to take a quiz/test, you will be asked to select which program you're using. Please select Canvas.
     

  • Respondus Monitor - Students use their own computer and a webcam to record assessment sessions, all without leaving Canvas.

NOTE: Online proctoring may require a review of your testing environment. Please consider your testing location prior to taking the test. If you are uncomfortable with proctors seeing that location, you should consider removing personal items or moving to a location that you feel comfortable showing such as another room of your residence, a library study room, or publicly available meeting room.
