Test Facilitation 

Examples of test facilitation include: proctoring of exams, extended test time, use of scribes, exams in audio format, enlargement of exams, exams in braille, use of readers, special lighting, use of word processor, or the need for a distraction-reduced environment. 

NOTE: While the campus is closed, the Testing Center is not available for in person test proctoring. If you or your instructor needs assistance providing your accommodations in an online course environment, please email PACE-Services@shastacollege.edu 

Tests are given in the Assessment Center, room 2215. Please remember that all testing requests need to be scheduled at least two (2) business days prior for regular exams,  and one (1) week in advance for final exams.  Testing schedules should be on your class syllabus, please make sure to plan.​

You can now schedule your exams online by accessing AIM:

  • Log into SC Online and click the AIM button 
  • Click My Accommodations on the left side menu, then Alternative Testing 
  • If you have never scheduled an exam in AIM before you will need to read and sign (type) your name on the testing agreement contract 
  • Choose the class you are scheduling a test for on the center drop down menu and click Schedule an Exam 
  • Enter the date, time and check which of your accommodations you want to use on the test. 

If you need assistance with these steps, please email PACE-Services or call 530-242-7793.
