The Evanston Public Library provides test proctoring for Evanston residents. Proof of residency will be required to schedule a test.
Test Proctoring Guidelines
The proctor will be the reference librarian on duty at the reference desk at the time of the exam (not necessarily the proctor coordinator). All Evanston Public Library reference librarians hold Masters of Library Science degrees.
The reference librarian will attend to desk duties and other patrons while proctoring and will not be able to observe the student at all times. Students are responsible for following test instructions.
Students will take written exams on the tables nearest the reference desk. Library computers are not currently available for online exams. If a computer is required, students need to use their own laptop.
Appointments for proctoring written exams are required.
There will be a charge of 20 cents per page for all test materials printed.
The Evanston Public Library will not receive graded tests for review by students.
Students are required to read the Evanston Public Library’s test proctoring guidelines [EPL Proctor Policy(pdf)] and submit them to the educational institutions for approval.
Testing supervisors must notify the Evanston Public Library’s proctor coordinator of their approval of the library’s guidelines by email before tests are proctored.
The following hours are available for test proctoring:
- Monday-Thursday, 10 am-8:30 pm
- Friday-Saturday, 9 am-5:30 pm
- Sunday, 12-5:30 pm.
