Test Proctoring with ARC

ARC is glad to be a resource for students and faculty who need having tests proctored for ARC-affiliated students. ARC provides in-person proctoring (remote proctoring will be considered on a case-by-case basis) for ARC-affiliated students only. If there are special or extenuating circumstances, please email guirym@tcnj.edu. ARC proctors will provide accommodations in accordance with the student’s accommodation memo and will exercise due diligence to ensure academic integrity.

How to Schedule Proctoring

  • Students: You start this process by emailing your instructors, letting them know when you are available to be proctored (remember — between 9 am and 4 pm), and indicate what testing accommodations you wish to enact for this particular test.
  • Faculty MUST notify ARC of a proctoring request at least five business days in advance of the proctoring date. Students, please remember this when notifying your professor you would like to take an exam with ARC. Students should give their professors more than five business days notice to ensure they can get the form in on time.
  • Faculty: when then date/time is finalized, you (not the student) are to complete the ARC Exam Proctoring form. Please use the form to alert ARC of the approved testing accommodations are requested by your student. This must be completed at least five business days (one week) before the scheduled proctoring date.
  • ARC will send a confirmation to students and faculty ahead of the proctoring date.

PLEASE NOTE THAT THE FORM FOR SPRING 2024 IS NOW CLOSED AND WE ARE NO LONGER ACCEPTING REQUESTS TO PROCTOR. If you have any questions, please email Megan Guiry at guirym@tcnj.edu.

Proctoring Considerations

  • Students are reminded to have their IDs ready to show when they appear for proctoring, to remove their smartwatches and headphones, and to leave any belongings with the proctor that are not needed for the exam.
  • Proctoring may be held in other locations when capacity is reached in the ARC Suite.
  • If the student has not appeared for their exam within 15 minutes of the start time, the proctoring will be canceled and the professor will be notified. Rescheduling is a possibility, but limitations will apply.
  • Because of limited resources, we cannot proctor exams that are untimed or have “unlimited time.”
  • We want the students for whom we proctor exams to have the best possible chance to demonstrate mastery of the subject. Therefore, we cannot act as readers for a test in a foreign language, where our lack of fluency could be detrimental to a student’s academic performance. Similarly, we cannot describe images, diagrams, charts or graphs for students, as our interpretations could adversely influence the student’s answers. Instructors, if you have a question about how to structure a test with these elements for a student with a disability, we would be happy to discuss it with you in advance of the test.
  • Due to the high demand for proctoring exams for legitimate disability-related reasons, we cannot provide proctoring for exams rescheduled to facilitate travel, vacations, social events, etc.
