    • Yes. You are responsible for supplying your own headphones for the exams. The Testing Center does not have any headphones to loan to students. If you arrive at the Testing Center without your headphones, you will not be able to take the exam and will be asked to reschedule.
  • Can I use scratch paper during the exam? (Spanish 2 and 3 only)
    • Yes. You will be provided with a piece of bar-coded scracth paper when entering for your exam. This is the only form of paper you will be permitted to use during the exam. When exiting the testing center, you will be required to scan and return your scratch paper to the testing center staff. Failure to do this will result in an F for your final course grade.

Textbooks:

  • Do I need to purchase a new textbook for my Spanish class?
    • Yes. Each new textbook comes with an access code that is required in order to view the multimedia files within your ANGEL homework. You are not able to purchase the code by itself, it is currently only offered as a package with a new textbook. Please DO NOT purchase a used book as you will not be able to use the access code. For more information on these codes, please see the Access Code page on our website.
