Scheduling Tests

All seats within the Testing Services are booked through an appointment-based process. Effective Summer 2022 , all scheduling of tests is conducted through an LMS integration within Humber’s Blackboard system and Guelph-Humber’s CourseLink system. This new integration creates a seamless process for all faculty and learners, ensuring the correct exams are scheduled for learners within the correct courses.


For learners to schedule a test in the Test Centres, faculty must first make the test available through the new integration. This is done in two steps. These steps are detailed in the attached handbook.

  1. Adding the Testing Services integration to your course content 
  2. Providing the test details and the test document 

Once you have made the test available in the Testing Services system, the Test Centre team will approve it, and learners will be able to book their test via the system.


This new methodology provides learners with confidence in securing their writing dates and times and eliminates line-ups and crowds at our locations. This approach also ensures that specialized accommodations (where needed) requiring limited resources (e.g., individual testing rooms, large spaces to enable a reader/scribe, specialized adaptive software programs not available on all devices) are able to be offered as required to meet our shared duty to accommodate.


Please remember learners are not required to activate their accommodations for all tests. Faculty will only need to submit tests to Testing Services if a learner has indicated that they wish to write in the Test Centre by communicating directly with you, or if they are completing a missed or conflicting test (when capacity allows). A test cannot be booked in the Test Centre by a learner without faculty submitting a test first. Please note that learners will be able to complete their tests/assessments within a 7-day window (provided by the instructor) in order to enable access to resources within Testing Services.


More detailed instructions about integrating, submitting a test, and booking a test can be found in this Faculty Handbook (UGH faculty - skip to page 12 of this handbook).
