Testing & Assessment

Welcome to the Testing & Assessment Department. The Truax Testing Center is located in Room D2603 in the main building of the campus. Our mission is to effectively provide comprehensive, accessible testing services that will promote student success and support college initiatives. Services offered include but are not limited to:

Student Testing Policies

  1. You must arrive on time.
  2. You must have a valid photo ID.
  3. Cell phones and all other electronic devices are not permitted in the testing rooms. Possession of a cell phone or other prohibited items while in the testing room will result in immediate dismissal from the exam and possible disciplinary action. If a cellphone is accessed, turned on or checked at any time during your session (including during a break) your test will be invalidated. This is to maintain the integrity of the test and is required as part of Madison College's contractual agreement with the testing companies. Lockers are available.
