***COVID-19 Virus Update***
With the quickly approaching Fall semester, and the return to classes we are excited to see students and faculty back in the Testing Center and remotely. In the interest of better serving you and your students in these rapidly changing times, we have added new safety precautions within the Testing Center as well as creating a variety of remote proctoring opportunities for those who have had to move their classes online.
For our in-person clients we want to assure you that we've taken significant steps to make the Testing Center more spacious in order to more easily conform to social distancing policies. We’ve spaced out seating and begun deep cleaning stations in between use in order to reduce the risk of spreading the COVID-19 virus.
We've added new remote options utilizing oom to give you the opportunity to safely test your students with academic integrity and safety in mind. For more information on our available testing formats please visit our Available Technology Page. If you still have questions on a specific remote testing option, or the measures in place in our in-person Testing Center please give Samuel Wiggins a call at 940-369-6298 or email Wiggins@unt.edu.
General information and help: NOTE: the Sage Hall Testing Center Lobby has been changed from C330 to 331. The following websites have been specifically set up for students who would be taking courses online and faculty who would be teaching them – Students: learnanywhere.unt.edu and Faculty: teachanywhere.unt.edu – please go to those websites for assistance for all online teaching and learning.

Our Mission and Purpose
The Sage Hall Computer-Based Testing Center is available for courses that require computerized testing in support of distance, blended or face-to-face classes. Assessment and testing are cornerstones of academic success. The University of North Texas is developing several new strategies to support faculty in the assessment of student learning. The center provides the opportunity for secure, high stakes computer-based testing of larger groups of students. While computer-based testing in labs previously has been available at UNT, the Sage Hall center provides UNT’s larger courses with robust opportunities for assessment.
The Sage Hall Computer-Based Testing Center is an active support partnership of Instructional Information Technology Services, the Center for Learning Experimentation, Application and Research, and the Office of the Provost and Vice President of Academic Affairs.
The Sage Hall Computer-Based Testing Center is located in Sage Hall, Room 331, third floor, across the hall from the elevator. The center has four rooms of the following sizes.
Important Note: Only professors or their representative staff members may make reservations.

Test Monitoring by Trained Personnel
Testing proctors, UNT graduate students who have undergone background checks and received extensive training and supervision, are available upon request to assist in protecting academic probity during exams. Proctors will verify students’ identity by checking photo IDs and help ensure that instructors’ security guidelines during exams are followed, e.g., no notes, textbooks, outside assistance, etc. The proctors do not fulfill the exam duties of the course instructor; they serve as an assistant for protecting academic integrity and security compliance during exams.
