The Portneuf District Library provides proctoring services for all members of the community. Please refer to the guidelines below when setting up your exam.
Before the Test
- The Portneuf Library has two proctors available. Appointments must be made with the specific staff member who will proctor the exam.
- Proctored tests must be scheduled at least 24 hours in advance.
- It is the student’s responsibility to know his or her institution’s policies and must state any special requirements to the proctor at the time of scheduling.
- Tests may be proctored only during regularly scheduled business hours, as staff availability permits.
- There is no charge for having an exam proctored other than any costs incurred while returning a test back to the institution.
- Any email communication between the library, institution, and/or student must be sent through firstname.lastname@example.org and not a staff member’s personal or work email.
On the Day of the Test:
- The student must present a valid photo ID to the proctor
- The proctor will take the student to a computer or desk to take his or her test.
- Online tests must be administered on a library computer, personal laptops should be left at home.
- While the library does its best to provide a calm and quiet atmosphere for the student, we cannot guarantee complete silence.
- If you are particularly sensitive to disturbances while taking a test, please ask your proctor for a time when the library is quietest.
- All non-approved materials in the student’s possession (including cell phones) will be kept by the proctor until the test is completed
- The proctor will periodically check on a student taking an exam. The proctor may constantly monitor an exam if required, but availability will be limited.
- It is the student’s responsibility to know his or her institution’s policies and must inform the proctor of any special requirements when scheduling an exam
- Once the test is complete, the student will notify the proctor as well as turn over any testing materials and scratch paper. The proctor will then return any non-test materials back to the student.
- The Proctor will return the test to the institution
- Any fees involved in mailing or faxing tests back to an institution are the responsibility of the student.
- If a test needs to be mailed and an envelope is not provided by the institution, the student should come to the test with an addressed and stamped envelope. The library may not be able to provide envelopes to the student.
- Faxed pages will be charged at the library’s current rate.
