Proctor Qualifications:

  • Familiar with accepted practices for administering standardized tests
  • Has no vested interest in the student’s scores
  • Is not related to the student

  • Is willing and able to complete the College Board’s proctor certification and pass their certification exam.
  • The proctor must verify that there is a computer available and make sure it meets the basic tech requirements for administering the tests. The easiest way to do this is to go to ACCUPLACER and click “System Requirements.”

If the test center personnel are willing to proctor an ACCUPLACER exam for the candidate, the candidate can reach out via the campus email addresses, providing contact information for the intended test proctor. This proctor must be testing personnel who is employed at a local college/university (which can be verified). Candidates are not allowed to take the placement tests without the supervision of an approved proctor. This ensures the integrity of the students’ test scores and the security of the ACCUPLACER tests.

The Testing Coordinator will notify candidates when exams have been set up. Please schedule the placement test only after this notification. When Scheduling a placement test session, allow for 4.5 hours for testing. Parts of the test are untimed.
