Exam Proctoring

Librarians at the 2nd Floor Information Desk are available to proctor exams. Exam proctoring is free for Glen Ellyn residents. Non-residents can pay a $10 per exam fee when the exam is taken. The library offers a quiet place to take an exam and staff to verify students’ identities. Librarians do not sit with the students to watch them take the test. If a school requires supervision during the exam, we cannot proctor the test.

All exams must be completed 30 minutes prior to the posted library closing time.

Written Exams

Students must make arrangements with the school to have the test sent to the library. Students will be charged printing costs of 10 cents per page for tests that are faxed or emailed. Students are not allowed to mail tests back themselves. Exams will be mailed or faxed back to the school within 24 hours. All mailed tests must have a postage-paid return envelope. The library is not responsible for U.S. mail service delays and does not provide a receipt of mailing.

No appointment is necessary for written tests, but the student should contact the 2nd Floor Information Desk to confirm that the exam has arrived. Any librarian may act as a proctor.

Exams that have not been taken within four weeks of receipt at the library will be mailed back, blank, to the school.

Online Exams

Online exams require an appointment. In order to reserve a computer for a specific time, please make an appointment at the 2nd Floor Information Desk. Twenty-four hour notice is appreciated. The library does not proctor exams on laptops because we cannot guarantee uninterrupted connectivity. Students who are not Glen Ellyn residents must be 18 or older to take online exams.
