What does test proctoring cost?

Nothing! Our test proctoring service is free! And, you do not have to live in Des Plaines.

Use my contact information on this page. (I prefer email.) Please contact me at least one week before you want to take your exam.

How test proctoring works

For paper exams

We can book a private study room on the fourth floor for you. The library staff proctoring your exam (myself or someone else in Reference) will not be able to stay in the room with you.

For online exams

Internet-access computers for adults (over age 15) are on the fourth floor. We can sign you up for an hour. If you need more time, ask Reference desk staff. Or, you can use a library laptop computer in a fourth-floor study room. Again, Reference staff cannot stay in the room with you.

Submitting completed exams

We can fax your completed exam to the school or institution, or scan and email it. If you also need us to mail the test, you or the school/institution must provide an envelope and postage.
