Online Exam Information
When can I request an exam?
- For self-paced online courses, request the next exam as soon as you have submitted all assignments preceding the exam request link. Be prepared to take the exam within two weeks.
- For interactive online courses, the course lists a date by which you need to send in the request for each exam. Be prepared to take the exam by the deadline stated in the course.
How do I request an exam?
- Log in to your course in http://learninghub.andrews.edu
Find the exam request link, which should be in the module you have just completed, or the very next one. Click on the Exam Request link (see example below).

Who can proctor my exam?

- If you live at or near a school, college, or university, arrange to use their testing center or request the registrar to be your testing proctor.

I lost power or was kicked out of the exam. What do I do?
If the exam time has not expired you can go back into the exam and continue taking it. You work will be saved up to the last item saved. If the time has expired, call 269 471 6566, or email firstname.lastname@example.org to have the exam reset. An expired exam cannot be reopened to finish. It must be retaken.
I have completed and submitted the exam. How long will it take to grade?
Griggs aims for a one week turn-around time for grading. If it has been longer than a week and you do not see the grade on Moodle, please first contact the instructor.
I see an F for the semester exam grade. Does this mean I failed the course?
Not necessarily. You see grades for each assignment and exam in your course space. If the course allows you to take an alternate exam when an exam is failed, your final grade will not be released until you have retaken the exam (within 6 weeks), or 6 weeks have passed since the exam was graded.
I think I failed an exam. What can I do?
Reread the exam policy in your syllabus. If you are taking a self-paced online course, you have the option to take one alternate exam currently. If you choose this option, contact your instructor for feedback on how to better prepare. For most online courses, graded exams cannot be reviewed, but instructors can advise on what to focus on in further study based on where you scored poorly.
What do I do to retake an exam?
- If you are eligible to retake an exam, fill in the same exam request form, checking the option to request an alternate exam.
- There is a $50 fee for an alternate exam. Follow payment instructions on the exam request form in your course space.
- Once notified of the exam release, arrange with your proctor to take the alternate exam promptly. An alternate must be taken before the course end date or six weeks from the date the failed exam was taken, whichever comes first.
