Computer-based Testing

The Office of Institutional Effectiveness provides computer-based testing for a wide array of LSU courses. Professors typically create a multi-day window within which students schedule tests at a time convenient to them. Tests are delivered by a secured server in a monitored environment. Testing software generates comparable forms and facilitates immediate score reporting and statistical analysis. Computer-based delivery of national assessments such as Praxis, TOEFL, and GRE is also available.

Test Scheduling 

Exams must be scheduled at the following: The first time you schedule an exam each semester, you will need to accept the Rules and Regulations of the Testing Lab (read, enter your MyLSU ID (e.g., mtiger1), and click "accept.")

Steps to schedule an exam:

  1. Click on Schedule an Exam.
  2. Select course, exam, and date from the drop-down lists.
  3. Confirm selection.
  4. Verify that you have received your confirmation email; keep this email in case you have any problems when you go to take your exam.

First-time users must login with their MyLSU ID (e.g., mtiger1) and their default password, which will be your LSU ID # (e.g., 89-xxx-xxxx).
