Exam Support

Students taking Andrews University and Consortium online classes will find information and prompts on when to request exams are embedded in learninghub's course space. If you're new to online study, this video introduces how to request and take exams online.

The best preparation for any exam is completing all assignments well, then reviewing all feedback. 

  • Andrews University online course exams can be taken by appointment, on site in Griggs Hall B, Room 130 or online through video conferencing.
  • Exams for main campus classes are taken under faculty supervision or as arranged with the Counseling and Testing Center on Campus
  • Any student living away from Berrien Springs who does not have an SAT or ACT Math score which is equivalent to (or higher than) the Math Placement Exam (MPE) minimum that fulfilled the prerequisite skill level for the Andrews University math course desired may email sdeexams@andrews.edu to arrange to take the MPE online.
  • The MPE can be completed online using the ALEKS PPL software. Students must purchase this and are encouraged to use the customaized learning modules for up to 6 months of review and self-assessment. Learn more and purchase here.
  • The MPE fee is paid by debit or credit card at the time of the exam appointment.  When emailing to request an exam, a link will be sent to schedule an appointment using an online calendar.  Exams can be scheduled during office hours, Monday to Thursday, 8:30-5:00 and Fridays 8:30-12:00.
  • All Andrews online classes using the School of Distance Education's student services have links in the class space to an exam request form if arranging a local proctor, or the calendar to set up an appointment to be proctored online.
  • Example of Exam Request Form Link
  • Request exams two weeks before the last date you can take 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 one week.
  • 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 exam request deadline stated in the course.

Proctors must have academic or administrative responsibility in a university, college, school or workplace continuing education setting.  They must be able to proctor at their place of work, and be prepared to observe the student throughout the exam session.

Acceptable proctors include:

  • University, college, or school faculty and teachers
  • University, college, or school student service workers, advisors or counselors
  • Librarians in a supervisory position
  • University, college, school, military, workplace or other testing center

Special Considerations:

  • If you live at or near the Berrien Springs, Michigan campus, exams must be taken in the School of Distance Education Testing Center.
  • If you live in Asia, exams will be proctored online through the Testing Center.
  • If there is no educational testing facility within 50 miles from your location, contact the Testing Coordinator for assistance in proctoring arrangements.
  • We reserve the right to make alternate proctoring arrangements even when a proposed proctor meets the acceptable proctor conditions. Arrangements will be made with students individually in such cases.
  • No family members, fiance(e)s, or friends
  • No tutors, teaching assistants, coaches, or fellow students
  • No work colleagues who are not testing personnel
  • No pastors or other local church personnel
  • If you completed an exam request form and have not received an e-mail confirming your exam release within 2-3 business days, call (269) 471-6566 or email sdeexams@andrews.edu as emails can be lost or information entry errors cause difficulties.
  • If you set up an appointment using our calendly onine scheduling tool,
  • It is your responsibility to arrange the time and place to take the exam in the presence of your proctor before the exam deadline - either using your approved local proctor, or via online proctoring.
  • Present a photo ID if the proctor does not know you personally.
  • Log in to learninghub.andrews.edu
  • Select the course you are taking the exam in.
  • Click on the exam link which is in the module directly below the exam request form you filled in (e.g. Midterm exam in Module 9)
  • Click Attempt Quiz, then Start Quiz
  • Your proctor will now enter the password and click Start.
  • Note how much time you have, and what materials are allowed, if any. 
  • Save often and pace yourself to finish within the allotted time. 
  • Bring items  as noted in the exam review.
  • Watch this short tutorial explaining what to expect when taking an online exam
  • Instructions on setting an appointment are emailed in confirmation to your exam request.
    Choose a quiet place with good lighting and stable internet to connect, using a computer with audio and video (no tablets).
    Within 10 minutes prior to the exam appointment, an email with the video conference link will be sent to your Andrews email address.
  • If the exam time has not expired you can go back into the exam and continue taking it.  Your work will be saved up to the last item saved.  If the time has expired, call (269) 471-6566, or email sdeexams@andrews.edu to have the exam reset. An expired exam cannot be reopened to finish. It must be retaken.
  • If you do not see the grade for an exam within a week, first contact the instructor listed in your course space. If no reply in two days, forward that email to assocdeanonline@andrews.edu for help.
  • Not necessarily. The final grade is weighted as explained in the syllabus. Grades are accessed through your University Academic Record, linked on your IVUE page.
  • If you need to earn a higher grade, contact your instructor to discuss options first. You may also repeat the course to replace the low grade on your transcript.
