  • You’ll need to have integrity. The Test Center requires adherence to MVNU's academic integrity code. Cheating will not be tolerated. If misconduct occurs in the Test Center, an Incident Report detailing the situation will be submitted to your instructor.

Tests We Administer for Students


If you’re absent from a class and need to make-up an exam, you’ll need to have your course instructor make a request and give us authorization to administer the test to you. You’ll also have to make arrangements to have the instructor provide the testing materials to the Test Center in advance of the make-up examination.


This is for general education and end-of-program assessments. If you missed the general education core testing (junior test) or end-of-program testing in your major (senior test), the assessments may be scheduled by appointment in the Test Center.


Diagnostic, placement, or proficiency tests for business, chemistry, mathematics, nursing, psychology, religion, social work, or Spanish may be taken through the Test Center.


We can facilitate your online or correspondence course examinations if you’re enrolled in distance education programs from other universities. Prior authorization is required to ensure the Test Center will be approved to administer the examination. For non-MVNU students there will be an administration fee. You may need to provide the appropriate information for the distance learning university.


Pearson VUE Tests administered at the Test Center include the Ohio Assessments for Educators (OAE) and National Evaluation Series (NES) tests for the teacher education program. Register for these Pearson VUE tests online by the respective websites. The Test Center does not register candidates for these assessment instruments.
