Test Proctoring Services

What is test proctoring?

Adult Services staff members will administer exams from institutions including distance learning centers, colleges and universities, and licensing agencies. The proctor will verify identification and ensure that the time limit for taking the test is adhered to, that no unauthorized sources are used and that the completed test is returned in the manner specified.

Where does the testing take place?

Tests are administered in the study rooms on the second floor of the library, in Adult Services. The proctor does not stay in the room while the test is being taken.

When is test proctoring available?

A test should be scheduled in advance by contacting Adult Services. A mutually agreed upon time will be chosen, with evening and Saturday times available. The library currently does not offer exam proctoring on Sundays. All exams must be finished thirty minutes prior to the library’s closing.

How do I begin the process?

You (i.e. the test taker) should contact Adult Services at the Westerville Public Library. After you have notified the school or institution of the library's address and any other pertinent information, the test is then sent from the school or institution. 

Before the test arrives in the mail, the test taker should contact the library and schedule the test proctoring appointment. After the test is taken and papers are signed indicating that the appropriate procedures were used, the test is then sent back for grading.

Who is eligible for this service?

Anyone who needs to take an exam through a school or institution that allows for test proctoring. This includes homeschoolers, high schoolers, distance education learners and more. If you are not sure whether you are eligible, feel free to contact us to ask more questions.

How much does it cost?

There is a $10 fee for each exam scheduled for proctoring.  Payment will be accepted at the time the exam is administered.
