Learning Assessment Centre

Welcome to the Learning Assessment Centre

The Learning Assessment Centre (LAC) at the University of Alberta provides secure digital exam services that are convenient and comfortable for students, as well as friendly and efficient for instructors. We offer secure, proctored exams for faculty and staff at the University, as well as learners outside of the university that require testing services in the Edmonton area. 

The Learning Assessment Centre and COVID-19

As the LAC is still navigating through the ever evolving COVID-19 guidelines put in place by the University of Alberta. The LAC is taking a phased approach to mitigate risks and we are prepared to adapt our centre as needed. Maintaining a safe and comfortable exam environment for students and staff is our top priority!

The steps the LAC are taking to maintain a safe exam experience:

  • LAC staff will be sanitizing ID scanners and workstations between each use, as well as pens/pencils, calculators, and other reusable materials.
  • During peak periods, the LAC will extend operating hours as necessary.
  • Physically distanced seating will be provided in the waiting area outside of the LAC.
  • Physical distancing will be employed whenever possible in the exam centre.

A message regarding COVID-19: PLEASE READ CAREFULLY
