Testing Services Information for Faculty

Testing Services at WSU offers 15 testing slots a week for students to take tests. Information on what kind of tests are proctored, when testing services is open and how you can help students can be found on this page.

If you have any questions, please contact Jillian Quandt at 507.457.5680 or testingservices@winona.edu.

What types of tests are proctored?

  • Tests for individual students in online, distance or arranged courses.
  • Make-up exams for WSU students.
  • Program entrance or assessment exams that take place outside of the normal classroom schedule.
  • Test Out or other proctoring requests as staffing and space allow.
  • Other exams for community members that require a proctor. 
Unfortunately, we do not have the resources available to permit instructors to use the testing services as a substitute for regular in-class exams. When proctoring assistance will be requested for entire online courses, please contact Jillian Quandt as far in advance as possible to determine if Testing Services will be able to accommodate all your students.

When is Testing Services open?

We have 15 testing slots each week. Proctoring is on a space available basis for up to 6 students at a time. Students will use our online system to sign up for an available time.

Mondays 1-3:30 pm
Tuesdays 3-6:30 pm
Wednesdays 10-1:30 pm
Thursdays 8:30 am -12 pm
Fridays 10 am-1:30 pm

What is the process for students with disabilities who need accommodations?

Students with disabilities should contact WSU Access Services to arrange for proctoring.

How do my students arrange to take a make-up exam?

WSU faculty will initiate the process by filling out the Exam Proctoring Request form. You can attach the exam right away or revisit the form later using the link in your confirmation email. An email will also be automatically generated to prompt your student(s) to fill out the student form and they will be given instructions on how to schedule their exam time online.

How do I get the exam to Testing Services?

As described above, you will attach the exam to your proctoring request form. For the very rare cases when additional exam materials (such as audio recordings) must be hand-delivered to Testing Services, please contact Jillian Quandt at 507 457-5680 to arrange a time as our front-desk is often staffed by students who are not allowed to accept exam materials.

How can my students who are not in Winona get a proctor?

MnOnline maintains a list of proctors at MnSCU institutions. Students in other areas should contact local colleges, universities, and libraries and inquire what proctoring services are available and if fees will be charged.
Students will contact you to get approval to take the exam. You will then fill out the Non-WSU Proctoring Request form and email the exam to us via email at testingservices@winona.edu. Students will fill out the Student Information form and will be given instructions on how to schedule their exam time online.

On the rare occasion that you need to send a paper copy of an exam through postal mail exam, send it to:
