Testing Center

IU East Online Programs and Testing Center

Welcome to the IU East Testing Center. We look forward to offering a warm and secure environment for students to take their exams. We realize that testing can be a stressful event for some, so we will work to provide students and faculty with the most positive testing experience possible. All exams require a current form of picture ID. Acceptable forms of identification include driver's license, passport, school ID, which is current and shows the examinees first and last name.

Our mission to help insure quality nondiscriminatory testing and to provide authentic assessment on critical course components. Whether you are faculty, staff, or students, we want your experience here to be positive. We work to ensure the highest level of academic integrity. The Testing Center is housed within the Online Programs/Center for Teaching & Learning.

Services Offered

We provide services to faculty, students, and staff for the following types of tests:

  • ALEKS Placement Test Assessment: The Assessment and Learning in Knowledge Spaces is a Web-based, artificially intelligent assessment and learning system. ALEKS uses adaptive questioning to quickly and accurately determine exactly what a student knows and doesn't know in a course. ALEKS then instructs the student on the topics she is most ready to learn.  This test will provide you and your advisor with information on your mathematical strengths and weaknesses.  Although the time varies for students, you want to allow 90 minutes for this test. For more information, please visit the following link:  http://www.aleks.com/
