Online education is becoming increasing popular among University of Missouri students, who find that online classes help them proceed through their degree plans efficiently. Forty-six percent of MU campus students took at least one online class in AY 16–17.
The expanded Mizzou Online exam room features look-down desks. These desks allow paper and computer-based exams.
MU students in online classes take more than 20,000 exams each year at approved exam sites throughout the U.S. and around the world. For students on or near the MU campus, the Mizzou Online exam room is a convenient location to take proctored exams.
Mizzou Online recently expanded its testing services to accommodate growing enrollment in online classes. The new exam room, in the Heinkel Building at the corner of 7th and Locust streets, can seat 45 test takers at a time — double the capacity of the former location in Clark Hall.
Students can take computer- and paper-based exams in the new exam room. Individual keyed lockers, look-down desks and enhanced video monitoring provide better security for exam takers.
The new facility also has improved acoustics and climate control as well as more space, giving students a better exam-taking experience.
Even with expanded capacity, exam room reservations fill quickly during peak times. Instructors of online classes should remind students that they need to schedule their exams in a timely manner
