Instructional Testing Services

Please note our location: Center Building, Room 311 (upstairs and across from the library)

At Instructional Testing Services (ITS), we provide a secure, monitored location for test proctoring on Lane’s main campus, in Center 311. When you test in ITS, you'll be asked to verify your identity, using an official photo identification, upon beginning an exam. Then you'll take your test in a room of secured computers with some walk-through monitoring. Electronic devices (like smartphones) will be checked into lockers before the beginning of their testing appointment and, unless instructors request it, no other outside materials are allowed.

Current Hours of Operation:

Fall Term 2023:

Testing will open in Week 3 (October 9). Hours will be determined during the start of the term -- please check back!

Please fill out this form for Fall term faculty testing requests.

We will be closed September 1-October 9.

Information for Faculty:

Faculty may request to have up to 3 exams proctored through ITS per section (CRN); exceptions are made on a space-available basis. In addition, instructors may request make-up exam proctoring for individual students throughout the term, though the process of electronic registration is the same (see more information below).

For scheduled exams being taken by the whole class, instructors may select a range of dates during which testing may occur during open testing center hours. Instructors who would like to have a test proctored through ITS need to fill out a Test Request Form as far in advance as possible, but no later than October 5 (at noon), to be assured of fall term administration.

The Instructional Testing Center space in Center 311 has approximately 90 computers and desks, and it can also be reserved for faculty to proctor tests for their whole class all at one time. The center will close during the term when it is reserved for full-class testing.

The fall 2023 Test Request Form is now open.

Testing space is on a first-come, first-serve basis, based on calculations of traffic in the center, and testing administration is not guaranteed. Currently, all tests are administered on a drop-in basis.

Make-Up Exam Proctoring:

Make up exams may be administered to students on a space-available basis. Please use the Test Request Form to give information on the tests and make sure all testing materials are received by ITS in advance of the make-up test start date. Please do not send students who missed class and are still experiencing symptoms of illness to ITS for testing.

Information for Students:

When you come to the testing center, please bring:

  • a valid form of state- or government-issued photo identification (driver's license, passport, etc.)
  • your L Number
  • your class number (such as Writing 101)
  • your instructor's name
  • and the name of the exam (Final Exam, Mid-term, Exam 3, etc.).

Personal belongings including smartphones, smartwatches, other electronic devices, and materials like purses or bags will need to be secured in our free lockers before you begin your exam. You may bring a clear water bottle with you to the exam.

Please allow an appropriate amount of time to take your exam. Tests will be closed when the center closes, and no exams will be administered within 30 minutes of the center's closing time.

Testing for Fall Term will take place on a drop-in basis (come on over! No appointment needed).
