If a PSI testing center is not available and only if it is not available, 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.
The library will then inform/send the student the following information for the school/institution:
Proctor name, title, address, email, phone number, and fax number.
The student is responsible for sending the above information to the NCCPT - CB. After the NCCPT has received this information, there are several different scenarios: The NCCPT may call the proctor. Usually we will email the proctor with any additional questions or proctoring instructions. The proctor will be asked to fill out the PROCTOR AGREEMENT for NCCPT DISTANCE LEARNING EXAM form to return to the school.
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. As soon as the proctoring instructions are received and the PROCTOR AGREEMENT for NCCPT DISTANCE LEARNING EXAM is accepted by the NCCPT, the proctor will inform the student to let him/her know they are approved to proctor and may schedule their exam. Contact the library directly for operating and proctoring hours. 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 the PROCTOR and STUDENT SIGN-IN SHEET for NCCPT DISTANCE LEARNING EXAM and request a Federal issued photo ID to verify identity and a valid CPT car. To download this form click here. The proctor must read and explain the general requirements to the student that materials banned during the examination such as notes, books, cellphones, 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 proctor will then log on to the testing software and enter the testing code for the student's exam to unlock 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 blank 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 within 24 hours 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.
