Proctoring Information for Distance Learning Students

Cognitive Testing Center at American Social Services of Uptown Ltd,  offers exam administration and proctoring services to Distance Learners.   We are able to accommodate paper and pencil exams, exams that must be word-processed using MS Word on a PC, Computer-Based and Internet-Based-Testing.  Exams are given in a classroom or lab of 30 workstations with other testing conducted at the same time. Individual testing rooms are not available.


General Information:

Determining the type of testing used in a distance learning course prior to registering for the course is a very important factor in the planning process. Testing methods can vary depending upon the actual course(s) for which you have registered, as well as your place of residence

Some most of your courses do not require on-campus but off campus proctored testing, it is your responsibility to make the appropriate arrangements for completing all necessary testing, as required for each course, prior to the start of the term attending.

The method by which course testing is completed at our center can be separated into two categories:
Alternative Testing
Traditional Testing


Alternative Testing

Many Distance Learning courses do not require traditional, paper-pencil testing, but utilize what is called “Alternative Testing.” If your course is listed on the Test Method Listing as an Alternative Testing course, online testing, papers, reports, projects and/or course participation may be used in lieu of traditional, paper-pencil testing. A student taking an Alternative Testing course will NOT need to physically come to campus or use a test proctor to complete their testing.   Therefore, kindly consult your course syllabus for additional information regarding the specific testing requirements for your Alternative Testing course.

Traditional Testing

Some courses use “Traditional Testing” methods. Testing for these type of courses include paper-pencil testing or supervised computer-based testing, internet-based testing given either on-campus or by a test proctor. Where you live is the determining factor in whether you will test on-campus or by test proctor.

It is your responsibility to make the appropriate arrangements for completing testing, as required for each course, prior to the start of the quarter you will be attending
