Testing Center

It is the mission of the Aims Community College Testing Center to provide high quality testing, DAS accommodations, test security procedures, exemplary customer service and instructional assessment services.

In addition to Accuplacer placement and academic testing, we offer a wide array of testing service for our students, as well as to the community.

Students with documented disabilities may be eligible for accommodations to assist with reaching their academic potential. You must have prior approval from Disability Access Services (DAS) before an exam can be administered with accommodations. For further information, contact Disability Access Services (DAS) at (970) 339-6388 or disabilities@aims.edu.

Aims Community College is a multi-campus institution and each campus offers a variety of assessment tests and services.

Assessment Testing

Assessment is designed to assist students in understanding their current academic levels and to aid them and their advisors in the selection of college courses. According to the State of Colorado and Aims Community College institutional procedures, all incoming students planning to register will be required to take the Noel Levitz College Student Inventory (CIS). In addition to this, students may be encouraged to assess in writing and math.

New and returning students are responsible for making arrangements at the Testing Center to provide assessment scores prior to conferring with an advisor and registering. Assessment scores may be turned in or self-reported. Visit our website at  https://www.aims.edu/student/testing/tests/assessment.php for information on the various options for meeting assessment.

Academic Testing

Testing services for faculty include administering the following:  makeup exams for the classroom, exams for Hybrid and Internet courses, written FAA exams, secured Nursing exams, and secured EMS exams.  We also provide test accommodations for those with documented disabilities.
