Please note that exam proctoring takes place at the Main Library only.
The Library Will:
- Proctor written and online exams free of charge. Exams may be sent via email or postal service. The library reserves the right to refuse proctoring if the requirements exceed our capability.
- Provide a designated contact number and email address (call 937-328-6903 for more information).
- Enforce any time limits and guidelines that are placed on the exam.
- Return completed exams via mail, email or fax.
The Student Will:
- Contact the library to request proctoring service before an exam is sent by the testing institution. Exams received without advance notice will be returned to the institution.
- Verify the school’s proctoring policy before contacting the library, as we may not be able to satisfy the requirements of every institution.
- Confirm that the test and instructions have been received by the library.
- Schedule the test at least one week in advance. Tests must be scheduled during regular library hours and at the availability of the proctor.
- Call to cancel if unable to keep reserved testing time. Repeated cancellations or no-shows will result in exams being returned and refusal to proctor.
- Bring a standard photo I.D. to exam and a school I.D. if required by the institution.
- Come prepared with pens, pencils, scratch paper, calculator, or any other supplies allowed for the exam.
- Take all online tests using the library PCs or on a personal laptop if the institution allows. Please note: The public computers provide up to 4 hours per day. If the exam is longer than 1 hour and there is no waiting list, you will be able to continue on with your session. If there is a wait list, you will need to save your progress (if possible) and log on to a new computer when available. A valid Clark County Public Library card or photo I.D. is required to access the library’s computers.
- Pay for any costs associated with mailing hard copies of tests not covered by the testing institution. All charges are payable on the date of the test.
The Library CANNOT:
- Provide a staff member to continuously monitor the exam.
- Accommodate requests for unscheduled proctoring or “drop-ins.”
- Fax materials to the testing institution that are not related to the proctoring process.
- Guarantee that the correct material has been received by the testing institution by a specific date.
- Interpret test instructions or assist in a technical manner with an online test.
- Download software for test taking or modify existing computer settings for online exams.
- Guarantee completed exams will be received by a specific deadline.
- Guarantee that technical problems will not occur when using the library PCs.
- Guarantee that the testing area will be quiet and free of distractions.
- Grade examinations.
Please note: Although the library does not have a designated area for taking exams, you may be able to use one of our 4 study rooms for written exams or exams taken on your personal laptop (if the institution allows). Study rooms are available on a first-come, first-served basis, up to 3 days in advance, and are available for a maximum of 3 hours per day, with a library card.
