Professor Exam Submission

Campus Testing Center – Professor Exam Submission


How to Submit Exams at the Campus Testing Center & D&A ATEC Lab

Test request process for the CTC: Students and Instructors will use RegisterBlast, a reservation system integrated within Canvas, to book accommodated tests in the Campus Testing Center (CTC). 

Instructors will first need to schedule tests through RegisterBlast at least 5-business days prior to the test date. Students will then need to reserve their seats in the CTC at least 3 days (72 hours) prior to their scheduled test. There will be no instructor confirmation required for exams since instructors will be entering the approved test day/time during the initial scheduling process.

CTC RegisterBlast professor exam submission guide: 

  1. Professors should first discuss exam times and dates with their students who have testing accommodations as part of their conversation when discussing the student’s Accommodation Letter from D&A.
  2. Professors wanting students to reserve space in the CTC will need to submit exam information through the Canvas RegisterBlast link at least 5-business days prior to the exam date.
  3. Exam materials may be emailed to the Campus Testing Center, uploaded to the RegisterBlast Portal, or hand-delivered to the Campus Testing Center in the Sanchez Building SZB 5.102 (Please deliver exam materials at least 24 hours prior to the scheduled appointments). ** Instructors will be notified in advance when students will be testing in the D&A ATEC Lab.**
  4. Students are not able to schedule appointments for exams until the professor has submitted the exam information on RegisterBlast and it has been approved by the CTC staff, so please submit the exam as early as possible.
  • Best practice is to schedule all semester exams at the start of the semester.
  1. Once a professor submits exam information, all students in the course who are using D&A testing accommodations will need to schedule their course testing appointments using the RegisterBlast link found in their Canvas course menu. Students must schedule their test a minimum of 3 days prior to the test date.
  2. Professors who review student submissions and do not agree with exam times should contact the student so they can cancel and re-book their scheduled exam.


Information that should be included with exam submission:

Mobile devices, such as the student’s own personal laptop are allowed for use during exams as required or permitted by the professor. Please specify if students will be using technology during the exam (e.g. use of smart phone to upload images to Gradescope, use of eTextbook or notes on student’s personal laptop, use of laptop to take Canvas exam online
