Test Taking Accommodations
Universtiy of Wisconsin Stevens Point
A test proctor is a trained student
facilitator who is qualified and paid to proctor tests/exams for
Disability Services. A proctor is responsible for the test/exam and its
administration; and may be responsible for reading or scribing
depending on the individual needs of the person being tested.
Since the proctor is responsible for the
test/exam, the test/exam will always be in the presence of the proctor
or Disability Services personnel from the time it is picked up to the
time it is delivered to the instructor. Therefore, a proctor will be in
the room with a student taking a test/exam. There is no exception to
this policy (unless telecommunication devices are used in the future).
Students who are taking tests/exams in
Disability Services will have a proctor present in the room with them,
just as students who take tests/exams in various locations throughout
campus have proctors in the room. It is imperative that the test/exam
be monitored in all test-taking locations in order to guarantee
protection of the test/exam.
Students will leave all personal belongings
(backpacks, book-bags, purses, cell phones, etc.) with the proctor.
Only a pen/pencil, test form and answer sheet(s) will be allowed with
the student, unless other items are specified by the
professor/instructor in writing/email.
Students are to use the restroom prior to the beginning of the exam and should not use the restroom during test-taking time.
Students are to turn in their test/exam to the proctor at the designated time and are not to request additional time.
Proctors are required to report any deviation
from this policy as well as students cheating on a test/exam. If a
student is in violation of this policy, a report will be filed with the
professor/instructor and the Office of Disability Services.
Your cooperation is greatly appreciated and
contributes to the success of our test accommodations service to
students through Disability Services.
