How you will be tested depends on the course or courses in which you are enrolled. Some instructors evaluate performance based on assignments and essay papers that you submit. Several other distance learning courses also require that you come to the Learning Lab on the Carterville campus to take required paper and pencil versions of tests and exams. The online course syllabus will indicate the method used for testing and how grades are determined for each course.

Whenever you take a test or exam at the Learning Lab or any testing center, you will always need to show a picture ID in advance of testing.
