Arranging Testing Services
Information about testing services at IVCC is included in the Distance Learning Handbook.
Students living outside of the IVCC district may request proctoring services from qualified organizations. Requests for proctored tests and the individual proctor must be approved by Illinois Valley Community College. IVCC reserves the right to contact your requested proctor and to reject requests for a specific proctor for any reason.
Illinois students are advised to locate a proctor at the nearest community college. The Illinois Virtual Campus provides a comprehensive listing of testing centers in Illinois. A list of fees is also provided.
Outside of the state, a proctor can be a faculty member, administrator, or other professional staff member of a school, college or library, an employee of a commercial testing center, an educational counselor, or a library staff member.
Proctors must agree to:
Monitor test taking in a professional environment.
- Verify student identity, requiring photo identification card.
Return tests via USPS in provided envelops.
Assure that the student does not leave the approved site with the the test instrument, whether original or duplicated.
Answer questions about test taking procedures, but not about the test content.
