Student Guidelines for Course Testing

Advance appointments are required for all course tests proctored in CFAA Testing Services. To make an appointment:
  • Go to and click on "Choose Exam" to find the tests associated with this class (e.g. BIOL 1110-001).
  • Select an upcoming test; you will be given the opportunity to reserve a convenient time on the day or days that the test is available.
  • The sooner you make your appointment, the more likely you are to get a seat on the day and time you prefer. It is strongly recommended that you make all of your test appointments as far in advance as possible.
  • Important: Don't wait. You must register and make your selection at least 6 hours prior to your preferred test time in order to save your reservation.

When you arrive for your testing appointment:

  • Bring your ETSU ID. You will not be seated for a test without an ETSU ID.
  • Bring the materials your instructor has permitted you to use (e.g. notes, calculators, textbook). These will be verified by CFAA staff before you are seated. All other belongings must be put in a CFAA-provided bag and placed under your seat, or in a cubby/locker in the CFAA.
  • If your instructor permits the use of scratch paper, CFAA staff will give it to you one piece at a time. All scratch paper will be collected before you exit the testing area.
  • Don't bring gum, food, drinks, or children into the testing area.
  • Don't wear sunglasses, hats, or hooded sweatshirts, coats, or jackets into the testing area.
  • If you are concerned about distractions or especially sensitive to background noise, ask for a free pair of disposable earplugs at check-in.
  • Turn OFF your cell phone, tablet, laptop, iPod, or any other electronic devices. These must be powered OFF and stored in the bag under your seat or in a cubby/locker, not on your person, during testing.
  • If you are spotted with an electronic device on your person while seated for testing, or if your device rings, vibrates, chimes, or otherwise goes off in the testing area, you will be asked to power it off in sight of a CFAA staff member and place it in your bag or cubby/locker. This is considered disruptive behavior, and as such will be reported to your instructor.
  • Suspicions of cheating, or any sort of disruption, will be documented by an Incident Report and sent to your instructor; further investigation and disciplinary actions will be left to them.

CFAA Testing Services is on the 1st floor of Sherrod Library. Call 423-439-7111 or 423-439-6708 for directions.
