Test Proctoring

The Library offers group proctoring times to individuals needing to take exams. Students need a Wichita Public Library card in good standing. There is a $15 proctor fee per test due at the time of the proctored exam.

Please arrange to take your exam at least five days in advance to ensure that all the necessary paperwork can be completed. You will need to fill out a proctor agreement with your school; this can be done in person or online through email (ask your instructor or outreach department). Once the proctor agreement information is on file with the Library, you can schedule your exam. You may use your own personal laptop if permitted by the institution.

Making an Appointment

All testing will be completed at the Advanced Learning Library. To arrange your proctored exam, please contact proctoring@wichitalibrary.org or call (316) 261-8500.

During Your Appointment

  • Provide current photo identification that matches the name on the testing materials before the session begins

  • Students are permitted to bring their own computers for testing if allowed by the learning institution
  • Library computers will not be modified, nor will installation of special software be allowed
  • Because some proctoring sessions can take place in open public areas of the building, the Library cannot guarantee a completely quiet environment during a proctoring session. Proctors will do their best to keep noise in the testing area to a minimum.
  • Proctors will enforce time limits and other guidelines set forth by the institution
  • Video monitoring will be used during all proctoring sessions

Submitting Your Test

  • Test proctoring staff can scan and email completed exams to the learning institution.
  • Students are required to bring stamped and appropriately addressed envelopes when completed tests are to be mailed. The Library will mail completed tests in the following day's mail.
  • When students are required to return tests by UPS or FedEx, it will be the student's responsibility to send materials to the learning institution.
