Exam Proctoring

All Scott County Libraries offer exam proctoring services. There is no cost for proctoring. Please keep in mind that we reserve the right to limit this service and we are unable to proctor certain types of exams.

Before a test is scheduled you must complete and return our Proctored Exam Guidelines Form (PDF) or submit the form online - tests must be scheduled at least two days in advance. Since the date or time you want may not be available it's best to schedule an exam in as far advance as possible. Contact your library for more information on proctoring.

Exam Guidelines


It is the student’s responsibility to verify that the guidelines are acceptable to the institution:
  • Staff will not provide constant monitoring/supervision during the testing period. 
  • The student must contact library staff to schedule the exam at least two library-open days in advance. Hours are found on the locations and hours page. This service may not be available during all open hours. 
  • The Librarian on duty at the time of the test will monitor it, regardless of who scheduled the exam. 
  • Tests can be mailed or emailed to the library. Students must verify in advance that the test or password has arrived. 
  • The student is required to present a picture ID before testing begins. 
  • Staff will not hold personal items for the student during the exam (ie: cell phones, text books, back packs, etc…) 
  • The student is responsible for all fees/charges related to the testing, including printing and mailing fees. 
  • The library may not be able to install special software to take online exams. 
  • If the student is not able to take the exam at the scheduled time, please call in advance to cancel or reschedule.
  • Staff will not rate, grade, or otherwise assess the quality or value of the student’s work prior to or after the exam.
  • Staff will not be able to proctor Minnesota insurance and real estate exams, per the MN Department of Commerce exam requirements.  Please contact the Library for a list of proctors in the Minneapolis metro area.
  • The library reserves the right to limit this service, if necessary.
