Steps for Adding & Making Changes to Exam Schedules

Once a signed exam schedule is on file for a class, student can add or change exams using the TrackerOnline system.  The student should discuss the proposed changes/additions with the instructor prior to submitting the online request form.

  1. Log on to TrackerOnline (http://tracker.tamu.edu/online)
  2. Click on the "Exams" tab
  3. On the Exams tab you will see a list of your classes for the semester.

To Change a Previously Scheduled Exam:

  1. On the right side of the Exams page click on the "Exam Change Request Form" button.
  2. Select the exam that you want to make a change to and selecting the appropriate radio button.
  3. Type the new date of the exam/quiz (Note: even if you are not changing the date, you will still need to put a date in the date box.  You can also click on the calendar icon to use the date picker to enter the date).
  4. Type the new time of the exam/quiz (Note: even if you are not changing the time, you will still need to put a time in the box).
  5. State the reason for the change (such as "professor changed the date, exam overlaps next class, etc.)
  6. Click on the "Send Request" button.  (Note: an e-mail notice will be sent to the TAC Administrator and the assigned instructor for the course.)

To Add a New Exam to the Schedule:

This can only be done once a signed exam schedule has been received and processed in the Testing Administration Center (TAC).

  1. Click on the "Add Exam" button next to the class that you want to add an exam for.
  2. Enter the date of the exam/quiz will be administered.
  3. Enter the time that the exam/quiz will be administered.
  4. Select the exam length that the rest of class will be allowed for the exam (standard time).  NOTE: Extra time will automatically be applied, if approved as an accommodation.
  5. If you are taking it on the same day as the rest of the class, leave the "same date" checkbox checked.  If not, then UNCHECK the box.
  6. If you are taking it at the same time as the rest of the class, leave the "same time' checkbox checked.  If not, then UNCHECK the box.
  7. Click on the "Send Request" button. An e-mail notice will be sent to the TAC Administrator and the assigned instructor for the course.
