Testing Services Academic Integrity Policy

Placement Testing

If/when a student is caught using unapproved aids (including but not limited to: scientific/graphing calculator, dictionary, thesaurus, Google or other internet search engines, etc) the student must be removed from the placement testing lab and will be informed of penalties by mail within ten business days. Students caught using unapproved aids will be allowed to re-test after three months from the initial test date have elapsed.

Accommodative Testing

If/when a student is caught using unapproved aids during a test taken with accommodations, the student 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.  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.

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.
