Alternatives to Using Scantron
For faculty looking to move away from paper exams or Scantrons, online testing is available through HuskyCT. Online testing can be offered in the classroom or as at-home assessment. For faculty wishing to administer online testing in the classroom (BYOD testing), UConn’s ITS has verified that all lecture classrooms have Wi-Fi capabilities sufficient to support this testing. Any classroom listed in UConn’s classroom directory (https://classrooms.uconn.edu/classroom-directory/) as “fixed-auditorium” has been verified.
Provides efficient administration and proctoring of semester exams to UConn students as well as students from other institutions. The UConn Testing Center adheres to the National College Testing Association (NCTA) Professional Standards and Guidelines and provides a valuable service to students, faculty and staff by promoting honesty, integrity and fairness in a helpful and supportive testing environment.
LockDown Browser is a custom browser that locks down the testing environment when used for taking a test in HuskyCT. When taking a test using LockDown Browser, students are unable to print, copy, go to other websites, access other applications, or close a test until it is submitted for grading.
