Testing Services

Standardized Testing
The Atwood Testing Center provides services to students, staff, faculty and the St. Cloud and surrounding communities by administering exams required for admission to undergraduate and graduate school, admittance into major programs, for-credit exams, professional certifications and various licensure programs.

Placement Testing
The ACCUPLACER Assessment Test is a placement system for entering first year students. It helps determine which courses are appropriate for new students and whether college preparatory classes are needed. Students are tested on reading, English skills, and math.

Proctored Testing
A proctored exam is an exam that is administered by an individual (proctor) who supervises the student while they are taking the exam. The proctor’s function is to ensure the integrity and security of the exam in a secure environment.
