Testing Services assists students as they achieve their scholastic goals. The Testing Center provides a facility for administering and monitoring tests, and the Placement Testing Lab, which administers placement tests, the College Level Examination Program (CLEP)  tests, Microsoft certification and IC3 tests.

The Placement Testing Lab administers the Accuplacer placement test–a computerized placement test that places students into appropriate English composition, reading and math courses. Moraine Valley uses the scores from the Accuplacer test to determine if students are ready for college-level coursework. Students with ACT scores of 20 or above in English/reading and math or previously earned college credit may be exempt.

The Testing Center provides a facility for the administering and monitoring of faculty-submitted tests to Moraine Valley students. A valid Moraine Valley student ID is required to take an instructor’s test in the Testing Center. The center also proctors exams to community members who are enrolled in online courses from other educational institutions. The student should contact the Testing Center in advance to make arrangements regarding forms that must be submitted. A current government issued ID is required to have your exam proctored in the center.
