  • Once the test has begun, the student is expected to complete the exam without interruption.
  • If dishonest behavior is observed it will be documented and the instructor notified.

Testing Center will provide:

  • Scratch paper and pencils
  • Basic function calculator (Available upon request, if permitted.
    Graphing calculators available in limited supply.)

Faculty Information

Students now need to schedule their appointments for blended/hybrid and/or make-up testing via RegisterBlast.

Online classes are courses taught completely online in a virtual classroom via the internet and students should be able to complete the course without stepping foot on a CNM campus. For this reason, the Assessment Center does not proctor online courses, but if you have extenuating circumstances that require the use of the Assessment Center, we will review your request on a case by case basis.

Hybrid classes combine both face-to-face classroom instruction and online learning. For example, in courses where students typically meet face-to-face two days a week, hybrid courses may meet in the classroom once a week and the remaining course time is spent in an online classroom environment. Hybrid courses require students to have access to a computer.

Blended courses are delivered online but require one or more campus visits during the term. Examples include mandatory on-campus orientation and required on-campus proctored exams.

Note: Students requiring special accommodations for testing (other than extra-time only) should contact the DRC at (505) 224-3259 or email drc@cnm.edu. You may treat students who need extra time only as a make-up.

1.  Create your professor RegisterBlast account at https://www.registerblast.com/cnmcc-main/professor/enroll and we will take care of the rest. Note: It may take one to four hours for us to configure your account before your tests can be processed.

  • Continue to submit your blended/hybrid and/or make-up testing cover sheets and class rosters as usual, via the dlmtestcenter@cnm.edu mailbox or in-person.
  • We will review the information, contact you if any clarifications or changes are needed, and will then enter it into RegisterBlast on your behalf. It will then be posted and made available on the RegisterBlast student site so students will be able to schedule their tests.
  • Please submit your testing forms as early in the term as possible, or submit your test dates as a placeholder. This helps us determine the department’s staffing needs based on anticipated testing volume.
  • The Testing Center will make a few copies as needed (<20) but otherwise we ask that the instructor provide copies and arrange drop-off and pick-up of all test materials (the DPC can assist with copying and delivery).
  • Paper/pencil tests (with the exception of make-up tests) are only administered at Main Campus.
  • Upon request, the Testing Center will scan & email completed test materials for return (with the exception of notecards), but we cannot promise a time frame, as it’s dependent on current testing volume.

2. From your RegisterBlast account:

Note: Walk-in students without an appointment will still need to schedule their exams with RegisterBlast at the Testing Center prior to testing. Seat availability is limited and reserved only through the RegisterBlast system.
