The Sheridan Assessment Centre provides services to Sheridan applicants, students and faculty by administering admission and placement assessments, and invigilating make-up tests/exams. The Assessment Centre also offers proctoring services to other educational institutions.
Some applicants are required to successfully complete an English language proficiency assessment to determine their eligibility to meet Sheridan’s admission requirements.
Students who apply to Sheridan’s certificate and diploma programs who do not have the required secondary school credentials for admission into the program, must demonstrate their ability to work at the postsecondary level by completing an equivalency test.
Students registered with Accessible Learning Services are asked to follow a few simple steps when booking an assessment.
Make Up Tests are available to Sheridan students who have missed an in-class exam, quiz, or assignment for reasons beyond their control.
In order to ensure Sheridan graduates have the skills they need to excel in their field of employment, we consult regularly with employers through Program Advisory Committees and through research into the skills required of employees in today’s complex workplace. One of the most essential skills is that of effective communication.
Mature student testing may be required for applicants who do not meet the admission requirements for their specific programs. In that case, a student may be requested by the admissions office to complete a Mature Student Test for English, math or science.
If you are an applicant to a Sheridan program and are interested in finding out more about the admission assessment that you are required to take, please come to one of our Assessment Information Sessions.
