General Proctor Information

A proctored exam is a test taken under the supervision of a qualified person or with the use of an electronic device that allows a qualified person to monitor your activity. Many TROY Online courses now require a proctored exam. Your instructor will indicate this requirement via the online schedule of classes, the course syllabus, a Canvas announcement or by e-mail. The TROY Online Testing Staff also send e-mail notifications to every student enrolled in a course that requires a proctored exam.

ACCUPLACER® is a comprehensive battery of tests designed to provide information about students’ English, reading, mathematics, and computer skills.

This assessment allows you and your advisor to work together to help you be successful. ACCUPLACER scores indicate academic areas where you are strong, as well as academic areas where you are not as strong. You do not PASS or FAIL the ACCUPLACER test; it only determines your current skill level in the area(s) tested so that you can be placed appropriately. You will receive your ACCUPLACER test results immediately and your score report will include placement messages informing you what courses you should take and how to register.

ACCUPLACER English and Math placement tests are required before students can register for a Math course or English composition course unless a student has previously taken a transferable course at another institution.

Millers Analogies Test (MAT)

The MAT is a high-level mental ability test requiring solutions stated as analogies. Through analogies with content from various academic subjects, MAT scores help graduate schools identify candidates whose knowledge and abilities go beyond mere memorization or repeating information.

The exam must be taken prior to the first term of enrollment unless you have previously completed a master’s degree through an accredited institution. The exam is timed at 60 minutes with an additional 20 minutes to build a profile prior to the exam. Below is a link where students can have access to a study guide, practice test and official transcripts.
