Remote Proctoring Instructions   

TSI tests are able to be administered both in person at our testing center as well as remotely using Zoom. In order for us to maintain the integrity of the exam while proctoring remotely, the following guidelines must be followed, failure to do so will result in your test being canceled without a refund.


Prior to your testing appointment:

  1. Complete the TSI pre-assessment found here. Make sure you have the proof of this pre-assessment ready to show your proctor at your appointment time.
  2. Download Zoom onto the computer you will be using to take your exam (you must connect to the meeting using the Zoom application, not the browser version of Zoom).
  3. Check to see if Zoom is set up correctly by clicking here.
  4. Check to see if your computer can run Accuplacer by clicking here.

When it is time for your appointment:

  1. Sit in a quiet place where you will be undisturbed while testing.
  2. Clear a workspace for your monitor, mouse, keyboard, blank scratch paper, and pencil. All other items must be removed from your table/desk.
  3. Use of a personal calculator is not allowed as the exam has a built-in calculator.
  4. Be sure to have your photo ID ready. You will need to show it to your proctor.
  5. An email will be sent to you the day before your test containing your Zoom meeting URL, meeting ID and meeting password, as well as your Accuplacer voucher number. Please have this information ready for your scheduled appointment time.


ID Requirements

You must bring a valid, government-issued photo ID, such as a driver’s license, state identification card, or passport. We also accept student IDs.


If you have a request for accommodations, please let us know at least one week in advance so we can arrange accordingly. All accommodations must be approved and on file with the Office of Disability Access in order for your TSI to be taken with the requested accommodations. Some accommodations may require your TSI appointment to be in person as the remote proctored option does not allow us to administer the exam with accommodations in certain circumstances. Please reach out to our office if you have any additional questions about accommodations for the TSI.


We now accept vouchers! Vouchers are a great way to take your exam at our center and have your scores sent to another institution automatically. Please contact your institution to have a voucher created and sent to our team. If you are taking an Accuplacer or TSI test using a voucher, make sure you let us know!
