Virtual Placement Testing

If you are unable to take a placement test at Mesa Community College or another approved testing facility you can schedule a virtual placement test by contacting testing@mesacc.edu. Please include your full name and student ID in the email. Once approved you will receive a voucher number and will be able to take the placement test online.

All you need is a computer, a web-cam and a high speed Internet connection. No additional software is required prior to your test session appointment. The live online proctor will provide the necessary software to effectively proctor your test session remotely. After the session is complete, your proctor will conclude the test session and remove any remote proctoring software from your workstation.

Follow the instructions provided at  http://accuplacerlive.onlineproctornow.com  to register and become comfortable with how the online proctoring program operates.

Be sure to check your computer system when you register or schedule your first proctored exam. We also recommend you test your computer 4 hours prior to any exams to be sure there will be no problems.

Prior to your test session, establish a tidy and undisturbed environment where you can conduct the test session. You will not be allowed to interact with anyone except for the remote proctor during this time. Any interruptions may require the remote proctor to immediately suspend the test and terminate the test session.
