Boise State Faculty Instructions for Using the RegisterBlast Test Scheduling Software:

What if My Students Need a Make-Up Test?

  • Email TestingCenter@boisestate.edu and request a Make-Up Test Request Form
  • This form is re-usable
  • Appointments can be set for a specific date and time; these appointments are set on a special Make-Up Tester Log, not through the normal RegisterBlast Scheduling System
  • Each Make-Up Test Request should be submitted at least 24 business hours in advance (same day requests cannot always be honored and should be avoided if possible)
  • Both the Instructor and Student will receive a confirmation email once the form has been processed
  • To make an exam available for an individual student:
    • Update the Testing Announcement to be available for the date and time the Make-Up Tester is testing (yes, this is visible to the entire class)
    • Add the Make-Up Tester to the exam as an Exception for the specific date/time the Make-Up Tester is approved for, this is an added layer of security that makes it so only this one student could take the test outside of the regular testing period

What if My Students Have Accommodations or Require Extra Assistance?
