Testing Services Academic Integrity Policy

Placement Testing

Students who use unapproved aids (including but not limited to: scientific/graphing calculator, dictionary, thesaurus, Google or other internet search engines, etc) during the placement test will not be allowed to continue testing and will have their test session invalidated. Students will be informed of penalties verbally and by mail within ten business days. Students caught using unapproved aids will be allowed to re-test after 30 days from the initial test date have elapsed.  

Accommodative Testing

Students who use unapproved aids during a test taken with accommodations will be asked to stop testing. The exam along with any aids that were used (notes, book) or a detailed description of the aids used (cell phone, internet search, etc) will be sent to the course Instructor immediately. Applicable video recordings, video stills and/or screen captures will be sent to the instructor as well. In the event the instructor is unavailable, the student will be allowed to continue testing.  The Instructor will follow through with his/her department’s academic integrity policy after all evidence is evaluated.

Proctored Exams for other Institutions

Each institution has its own academic integrity policy that the student is responsible to know. Each institution sends specific instructions to OCC proctors regarding the way academic dishonesty should be handled. If you are unsure of your institution’s policy, contact your course Instructor, refer to your course syllabus or see your school’s student handbook.
