Library: Exams can be taken at the library

1857

There is an article in the May—June 2015 library newsletter on Test Proctoring Rules and Procedures.  I addressed the topic because our Reference Librarian Debbie Adams oversees this service for many, many students.  The policy is fairly strict in order to preserve the integrity of the exams.  The article is reprinted here.

VickieHardinTest proctoring is a very important service provided by the library.  Bossier Central Reference Librarian Debbie Adams says, “There has been an increase in the number of students coming in to take exams.” 

As stated in the Proctoring Policy, BPL offers proctoring services at the Aulds, Benton, and Central Libraries by master-level librarians.  Exams will be given Monday through Thursday between 9a.m. — 5p.m., Saturday 9a.m.—2p.m., as allowed by the librarians’ work schedule.  Exams will not be scheduled on Fridays, Sundays, or library holidays. 

The library reserves the right to refuse to proctor exams in instances where it interferes with library operations or in cases where they are deemed unreasonable or burdensome to administer.  Exams must be scheduled a minimum of three (3) business days in advance.  Unscheduled exams will not be accommodated.  Students must contact the designated librarian who will administer the test directly to schedule exams.  The library does not guarantee a quiet study area will be provided.  Students must sign the Proctoring Policy Student Agreement.

For more information contact Debbie Adams at Bossier Central Library at 746-1693.
