Firelands Teaching and Learning Center: For Faculty

Tutor Referral Request

Students are encouraged to come and request a tutor for any subject they are taking here at Firelands.  We try to give them a tutor referral as soon as possible.  If you have a student which has received an A or B in your class who you would like to refer to the TLC as a possible tutor please contact the student to see if they are interested, and email Jackie at jacquem@bgsu.edu with your recommendation.  The student will have to complete an employment application and training to become a peer tutor of the TLC.

ANNOUNCEMENT: The Writing Lab needs new student tutors. Instructors are encouraged to search their recent rosters for the names and email addresses of students who possess very good writing and interpersonal skills. Such contact information on possible candidates should be sent directly to Brigette Green-Churchwell (blgreen@bgsu.edu). 

Make-Up Test Procedures

Make-up tests are at the discretion of the instructor. If a student is granted permission to take a make-up test please advise them to call 419-372-0748 or stop by the Teaching and Learning Center (TLC) at least 24 hours in advance to make an appointment with the receptionist. Testing will be held in blocked hours and up to eight testers can test at one time.


1.  Fill out testing envelope/cover sheets. 

  • Instructors should bring to the TLC a hard copy of the test to be given to the student. Additionally, a test file envelope cover sheet - a hard copy of the instructions or special considerations which the student / test supervisor should be aware of in the administration of the test - should be brought to the TLC.
  • Pre-made testing envelopes are available in the file cabinet in the TLC by the faculty desk. (Faculty desk is in front of the secretary's desk near the color copier).
  • You also have the option to email a copy of the test and cover sheet to the secretary (jacquem@bgsu.edu). (Download Instructor Make-up Form Cover Sheet below.)

2.  Test can be handed in at the TLC secretary's desk where they will be date stamped and filed in the teacher's personal testing file.

  • Tests and instructions are housed in the locked Testing File Cabinet, located at the secretary's station. Each instructor has their own test folder, filed by last name. 
  • Do not bring answer keys or master computerized score sheets to the TLC.

3. After the test is administered:

  • A signed seal is put on the envelope following the students' completion of the test and before the test is given to Jackie or the student receptionists to refile.  You may come in or call 419-372-0705 to see if the student's test has been completed.  

Note: Computerized scoring bubble sheets, envelopes, a calendar, as well as envelope seals and the test submission form are available at the Teaching and Learning Center.

Test Proctoring

If any instructor has an emergency and is not able to be present to administer a test, we will proctor the test for you.  Please call 419-372-0705 to arrange.

Group Toutoring

There are several group tutoring sessions including math, business, and psychology groups, which will be reinstated as needed.

SOME "DOS" AND "DON'TS" FOR FACULTY AND STAFF

  • Do not post grades publicly by name or BGSU ID.

This includes individual exam grades and semester grades. For example, you cannot hang lists of grades on your office door if students or others can figure out who earned what grade. If you post grades, assign confidential codes to your students in advance and inform them that grades will be listed by these codes. Do not share grade or class schedule information with a third party, including parents.

  • Do not tell another person what a student's class schedule is or what grade the student earned in your class.

You can, however, share information with others on campus who have legitimate educational reasons to know; for example, you can tell a student's academic advisor how the student is performing in your class. You cannot share confidential information with parents of a student, unless you know the student is a dependent of the parents.
