James V. Brown offers test-proctoring services for students pursuing degree or license

Taking courses online is not an unusual phenomenon in today’s society for high school students, college students or for individual course work. But how do you take the final exam? The James V. Brown Library, 19 E. Fourth St., can help one in attaining a degree or license.

The Brown Library offers test-proctoring services to students by appointment.

Exams must be scheduled two weeks in advance. Students must have a valid library card and photo identification.

There is a cost for each exam and fees must be paid at the Information Service desk prior to taking the exam.

The library accepts cash, checks and major credit cards.

The library proctors both online and written exams. If the exam is written, it is the student’s responsibility to obtain the needed signatures and arrange for the test to be delivered directly to the library. Information Services Staff will contact the student when the exam has arrived to schedule a test date.

All written exams will be returned directly to the testing institution via the U.S. Postal Service.

Allow for 7-10 days for delivery. If the student requires return by UPS or FedEx, they also must provide a postage-paid envelope to the library.

To help students achieve the highest score possible, test takers are expected to come prepared with any necessary supplies.

The use of cell phones, visiting with others and any other distracting devices will be prohibited. The library also can offer computer access for online exams.

To arrange proctoring, contact Alex Hartmann at ahartmann@jvbrown.edu or 570-326-0536, ext. 139.

The James V. Brown Library is open from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday, and noon to 5 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday and 24/7 at www.jvbrown.edu.
