  8. No children are allowed in the testing lab, nor are they allowed to be left unattended during testing.

Any violation of the policies, including prohibited behavior and the use of unauthorized items, will cause an automatic dismissal and will be reported to the appropriate instructor. The examinee may also be subject to the college's disciplinary rules and procedures.

Prohibited behavior includes talking, looking around, making excessive noise, opening other windows while taking a computerized exam, taking unauthorized restroom breaks, taking test content, disruptive behavior, and the use of unauthorized items.
  11. Examinees must turn in all materials used during the exam, including scratch paper.
