Test ProctoringTest Proctoring

The Alexandria Library System offers proctoring services for the public at the Beatley Central, Barrett Branch, and Burke Branch libraries. The Alexandria Library reserves the right to decline to proctor any exam at the Library’s discretion.


Guidelines:

  • Proctoring costs $35 per exam.
  • Exams are scheduled on a first-come, first-served basis.
  • Exams must be scheduled one week before the test date; librarians do not proctor exams on demand.
  • All exams must be completed 30 minutes before closing.
  • We do not proctor any tests requiring the use of a Library computer. We will proctor online exams if the student provides his or her own Wi-Fi enabled laptop.
  • Exams will be proctored in an open area; we do not provide a silent room for exams.
  • The student is responsible for compliance with all testing agency requirements.
  • The librarian will return the test via mail/fax/email to the learning institution upon completion. Exams are returned via the Alexandria Library mailroom. The Library reserves the right to return facsimile or emailed exams via the U.S. Mail.
  • The Library provides no test taking materials. Calculators or any other special equipment are the responsibility of the test-taker.
  • Proctoring is not offered for driving tests.

 

Costs & Expenses

The Alexandria Library charges a $35 fee per exam for proctoring services, payable by CASH OR CHECK ONLY. Checks should be made payable to the Alexandria Library. The fee includes printing, faxing, and normal mailing costs. Special return mailing costs will incur an extra fee.  

 

Missed Appointments 

If the student needs to reschedule an appointment, the librarian will do so for a date and time convenient to both parties. If a student misses his or her appointment without a valid reason, the librarian will return the uncompleted exam to the learning institution. The Library is under no obligation to reschedule an exam.
