Due to a 250% increase in DCO and hybrid classes, the Testing Center is concerned about our capacity to meet everyone’s expectations for testing. In consultation with the VCAA and on a trial basis, for Summer and Fall 2022, the Testing Center will offer the following services for Kapiʻolani CC classes and Kapiʻolani CC students taking classes at other campuses.  All tests are conducted in-person and by appointment only. The Testing Center does not support remote proctoring. With the uncertainties of the pandemic, we recommend having a backup assessment plan in place.

For Placement/Qualifying Tests:

  • Placement Testing (ACCUPLACER and Foreign Languages)

  • ATI TEAS

For Academic Tests, supported test types are listed by class modality:

Face-to-Face (F2F):

  • Online tests only (Laulima, Pearson, etc)

  • Make Up Tests (online and paper tests)

  • Students with testing accommodations (online and paper tests)

Hybrid:

  • Online and Paper Tests

  • Make Up Tests (online and paper tests)

  • Students with testing accommodations (online and paper tests)

Any form of Distance Education, including DCO (Distance-Completely Online)*, DTV (Distance-Cable TV), DIV (Distance-Interactive Video):

  • Make Up Tests (online and paper tests)

  • Students with testing accommodations (online and paper tests).

*Per University of Hawaiʻi system memo, May 7, 2021, subject: Instructional Method Codes, for DCO classes the “student is never required to visit campus or a UH site (e.g. for testing…)”.
