Testing Services supports student retention and success by providing examinations in a secure environment that facilitates academic success. By doing this, we support the institutional mission of Methodist College by promoting the intellectual and academic well-being of students through ADA accommodated testing, placement testing, and occasional course specific makeup testing, as well as certification and other exams for the community (such as Certified Nursing Assistant)
Testing Services is committed to promoting academic achievement through professional exam proctoring services, and meeting the strict requirements of federal ADA guidelines, testing providers (such as ATI), Methodist College faculty, and the specialized needs of students.
Testing Services is committed to maintaining the highest compliance with nationally recognized professional testing standards and practices, safeguarding confidentiality of student records, and creating an optimal testing environment.
ADA Accommodated Exams
ADA accommodated testing is available for students needing ADA accommodations. Students who fill out the appropriate paperwork with Danielle McCoy, the ADA Coordinator, will be allowed to have accommodations provided to them, such as a distraction-reduced environment, extended testing time, paper exam, and having an exam reader. In order to request ADA accommodations, the student must schedule an appointment for the exam by contacting Testing Services via phone (309-282-8452), email (Testing@methodistcol.edu), or by visiting the Testing Services Office (W182).
