Instructional IT Services
Instructional IT Services is the division of University IT most associated with direct support of student and faculty teaching and learning. The three departments and varied services function separately, but work collaboratively to facilitate technical assistance for meaningful and successful teaching and learning experiences at UNT.

The Sage Hall Computer-Based Testing Center is available for professors of courses needing computerized testing in support of distance, blended or face-to-face classes. Assessment and testing are cornerstones of academic success. UNT actively supports faculty in the assessment of student learning and the Sage Hall Computer-Based Testing Center plays a strong role in this. The center provides an opportunity for secure, high stakes computer-based testing of large groups of students. The CBTC also provides instructors of UNT’s high-enrollment courses with robust opportunities for assessment while also supporting smaller courses, certification testing, and training sessions.
