Testing Information




Library

If, and when a PROMETRIC center is not available or farther than a 60 – mile radius, the NCCPT may approve a qualified library to proctor your exam. Many Libraries offer proctoring of examinations from a variety of institutions as a service to the community. Requirements and details of the process differ somewhat among various libraries, but this outline should serve as a general guide to the process.

When a student needs to be proctored, he or she should contact a library in their area. If the library has proctoring services and you wish to proceed with that library download the form, PROCTOR AGREEMENT for NCCPT DISTANCE LEARNING EXAM at: https://www.nccpt.com/forms and have the library/proctor fill it out.

The student is responsible for sending the above form to their Career Advisor at the NCCPT form for approval. After the NCCPT has received this information, there are several different scenarios: The NCCPT will then contact the proctor.

Once the library/proctor has been approved by the NCCPT to administer the test, the NCCPT will send the library the proctoring instructions via email. The proctor will inform the student to let him/her know they are approved to proctor and may schedule their exam. We may email the proctor with any additional questions or proctoring instructions. Tests are proctored between the hours of operation of that particular library and proctor. Schedule the test in advance. We cannot guarantee that a certain day or time will be available. Often tests are proctored only one day a week. Planning ahead is extremely important.

Please note: The NCCPT will not allow the student to use his/her own computer. They must reserve one of the Library computers for the student.

When the student arrives, the proctor will use PROCTOR and STUDENT SIGN –IN SHEET for NCCPT DISTANCE LEARNING EXAM and request a Federal-issue, photo-ID to verify identity and a valid CPT card. Make sure the date of birth, first and last name on your valid, government issued ID matches, exactly, the DOB and first and last name in your NCCPT account. The testing center proctor will check this and will not let you test if they are different.

To download this form, go to https://www.nccpt.com/forms

The proctor will explain or read the general requirements to the student, such as materials allowed or banned during the examination (e.g. notes, books, calculator, etc.), and that use of cell phones, pagers, etc. will result in the exam being voided immediately. The student will be asked to examine, read, sign and date any documents necessary, including the answer sheet if used. The proctor will explain the time limits allowed for the exam.

The student will then log on to the testing software. Once the student is logged in, the Proctor will contact the NCCPT to confirm the student is ready to take their exam. The proctor will then receive instructions on how the student may begin their exam. The proctor is required to remain in the room with the student while the exam is in progress to ensure that the rules set by the NCCPT are followed.

On completion of the exam or the time allowed for the exam if not completed, all materials will be collected – a blanks sheet, answer sheet if applicable and an evaluation (the evaluation is generally voluntary.) The proctor will sign the proctor certificate and provide any additional information requested.

Payment to the library may be due at this time or in some instances may be due at the time of the reservation (see Proctoring Fees below). Please note that if there are any complications with the test administration, the student will be responsible for paying for any time involved. A receipt will be given to the student for the payment. It is tax deductible.

If the exam is to be sent by FedEx, the proctor will call FedEx to schedule a pick up. The FedEx package must be prepaid and addressed by the student or school.

If a paper and pencil exam is necessary (there is no internet) the NCCPT will provide a self-addressed stamped folder/package/envelope to return the exam.

If the exam is paper and pencil, the proctor will place the requested materials in the return folder/package/envelope, seal and mail it shortly after the test is completed.

Cancellation of a proctoring reservation is the responsibility of the student. Failure to notify the library of a cancellation may affect future proctoring privileges. Cancellation policies may vary per library. The Library may also reserve the right to cancel or change a proctoring appointment.
