About Us

 

      

The CWU Testing Center houses a large and versatile testing facility in the heart of central Washington. Open year round, we strive to meet the testing needs of not only CWU students and faculty, but also community members and visitors  from all over the northwest.

Here in Bouillon 125, you’ll find the opportunity to be seated in a quiet, secure environment for a broad lineup of nationally recognized examinations, pre-employment screenings, certification exams, and college placement tests. We also have small lockers for secure storage of personal items not allowed in the testing room.

Among the many services we can provide:

◊   Compass Testing in Math, Writing and Reading

◊   Certified proctors for both paper and computer-based exams

◊   Secure, quiet environment for taking exams for online and distance courses

◊   Graduate/professional school entrance exams (MCAT, GRE, LSAT)

◊    Pearson VUE Testing that includes the GED, CompTIA, Cisco, WEST and more.

◊   Certification exams for mechanics, personal trainers, counselors, among others

◊   Exams to earn college credit for prior learning (DSST & CLEP)

For our CWU faculty, we offer the convenience of complimentary scoring of quizzes and exams (on Scantron forms) using our time-saving optical mark-reading scanner. Resulting reports are conveniently returned via email.  We also provide proctors for accommodated testing if the faculty member is unable to provide these in house. Additional information on this service is provided under Accommodated Testing Services.

Open weekdays from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm, year round except official state holidays.

Located at the intersection of 9th Avenue and Chestnut Street in the building that is  unique in its 60's architecture, unusual honeycomb brickwork  and  airplane windows.
