Learning Resource Center

For Faculty

The Learning Resource Center’s main role is working with individual students; we provide free tutoring, help with study skills, handouts on a variety of topics, assistance with resumes and cover letters, and guidance with research.  However, our goals also include providing service to LCN faculty.

Make-Up Exam Proctoring

If you’d like LRC staff to proctor a student’s make-up exam, submit the test and a completed Proctor Request Form (available in the LRC folder in the content area of the Linc-In Faculty Group or in the Faculty workroom).

Students must schedule testing times in advance by contacting the Testing Center  by phone (309.268.4899), in person, or by email (testingcenter@lincolncollege.edu) and must present a photo ID when they come for their appointment. Completed exams or exams that have passed their expiration date will be returned to your mailbox.

The Testing Center is not equipped to accommodate an entire class; if you need a proctor for a class exam, contact the Program Director for your area.

Referral of Specific Students

If you feel that one of your students would benefit from working with a tutor, you can submit a Referral Form (available in the faculty workroom or the LRC folder in the content area of the Linc-In Faculty Group). You will be notified weekly of student compliance and progress.

Reserved Materials Cabinet

Items may be placed on reserve in the LRC for your students’ use. Stop by the LRC with the materials and any specific instructions on student use.

Research Assistance

If you have a research component in your class and would like an LRC writing specialist to talk to your class about the College’s online databases and other research tips, contact the LRC Director.

Take-Home Tests

Although most students who seek assistance from LRC tutors do so for legitimate reasons, occasionally a student may ask for help with a problem or question that was assigned as part of a take-home test. While it is LRC policy to refuse help on a make-up test, tutors do not necessarily know when a student’s questions arise from an exam.

To help maintain the integrity of take-home tests and other projects which the student is required to complete without tutorial support, it is helpful if you notify the LRC when you make such assignments.
