To provide maximum flexibility in administering the Writing Proficiency Exam for the fall 2020 semester, we are conducting all Writing Proficiency Exams online. Both on-campus and distance education students will take the exam through D2L, and the exam will be monitored with LockDown Browser and Respondus proctoring features that are embedded in D2L. There will not be an additional charge to a third-party proctoring service; all exams will require the usual $25 payment to MSU through Touchnet. By doing so, we minimize any inconvenience that may be caused by potential shifts in face-to-face restrictions or group size. We will evaluate this process and make decisions for Spring testing in the coming months.
Our webpage is in the process of being revised to reflect the changes for Fall 2020. Beginning Monday, August 24, students should sign up for the exam by completing a survey at the Pay for the WPE link.
