Exam Proctoring

The Ela Area Public Library offers exam proctoring services for Ela cardholders.

Proctoring Information and Rules

  • Proctoring is limited to Ela cardholders only. 
  • Proctoring is free of charge. 
  • An appointment for proctoring must be scheduled in advance of the exam. Exams will not be proctored on a drop-in basis.   
  • Exams are proctored during regular library hours. Exams must be completed at least 30 minutes prior to closing.   
  • Scheduling an exam will depend upon the availability of the Adult Reference staff. The librarian initially contacted may not be the one giving the test. If the institution requires you to have only one person administering the test, you must be able to take your exam during that librarian’s schedule.   
  • The library can accommodate print and online exams. A library computer and study room will be made available for an online exam, but the library is not able to install any software or disable any features of the library network to accommodate an exam.  
  • The library is unable to provide one-on-one constant monitoring of students. If the institution requires direct supervision during the entire exam, we will not be able to proctor the exam.
