Test Proctoring Procedures
As a public service the Carl Elliott Regional Library System provides test proctoring services when possible.
A minimum of one week advance notice is required before any test will be proctored. Appointments can be made in person, by phone, or by email.
There is a $20 service fee required, per test, for administering and returning exams. Fees must be paid prior to starting testing. The student or the examining institution must provide a return envelope and postage if applicable.
All test requirements and materials must be received from the issuing educational, vocational, or other institution before any tests are taken.
Exams will be administered during the computer labs operating hours Tuesday through Friday. The test must be completed 15 minutes before the library closes. The student is responsible for ensuring he/she have enough time to complete his/her test in the allotted time.
At the time of testing, the student must provide current photo identification and the name on the identification must match the name on the testing materials.
The library will proctor written (open or closed book), emailed, or online test. If the test is online, the student must understand that there will be some degree of noise and activity in the public area where the computers are located. The library will provide a computer that has Microsoft Word and Internet access; however, installation of any special software that may be needed to complete the exam is not allowed. It is the responsibility of the student to ensure that the computing resources are adequate for their testing procedures.
The student must provide the proctor with necessary verification forms and exam instructions if necessary.
The student must furnish all supplies needed to complete the exam (pens, pencils, calculator, paper, etc.)
The library reserves the right to cancel or change the date of any proctor test due to inclement weather, computer malfunctions, etc. The test can be rescheduled in the event of an emergency.
Due to legal and ethical restrictions, the proctor will not sign a proctoring statement that attests to more than they are able to do.
The proctor will not enter his/her personal information (Social Security number, home address, home phone number, etc.) on the proctoring materials.
The use of cellphones or visiting with others during the exam is not allowed.
The library reserves the right to refuse to proctor an exam for any reason.
