Testing Information

 

Testing Options

Tests can be taken by a variety of methods: 1) in Instructional Support Services in the LRC, Martin Hall, 2) at the New River Valley Mall site, 3) through an approved test proctor, or 4) through the instructor. Unless you initiate the process of requesting a proctor or arranging to take a test through your instructor, it will be assumed that you will either test in Instructional Support Services or at the New River Valley Mall site - whichever is more convenient for your schedule. Please familiarize yourself with the testing procedures found in The Student's Guide to Independent & Distance Learning. You will be responsible for knowing these procedures.

Proctor Description

If you are unable to travel to campus to take your tests, you may need a proctor. A proctor is an individual who agrees to receive your tests from NRCC, administer them to you in a suitable environment and return them to NRCC in a timely fashion. This proctor will certify in writing to NRCC that you completed the test according to all the specified directions provided.
Proctors must be requested within one week after the IDL Orientation, or one week from your enrollment if it falls after this date.

A proctor can be: (1) college or university personnel: administrator, faculty member, counselor, librarian, or any official testing center personnel if a testing center is available; (2) public or private school personnel: superintendent, principle, guidance counselor, librarian or teacher; (3) organization or institution education personnel (e.g. training coordinator, human resource personnel) (4) minister or member of the clergy.

Please Note: Relatives, regardless of their position, are not permitted to be proctors. Students, regardless of their position, are not permitted to be proctors.

Proctor Request Guidelines

Requests for proctored tests and the individual proctor must be approved by the Independent & Distance Learning Program and/or your faculty member. NRCC reserves the right to reject requests or proctors for any reason. To request a proctor, fill out the PROCTOR REQUEST form and return it as soon as possible so that your tests will not be delayed.
It is your responsibility to keep in mind test deadlines when requesting a proctor. If approved, your tests will be mailed to the proctor within a week of your request. If you have any questions about the proctoring process, contact the Independent & Distance Learning Program 540-674-3600 ext. 614.

Proctor Requirements

Proctors are required to: keep tests in a safe place until the student requests them; provide a testing-conducive environment for the students to test in; monitor the taking of test; mail the test, answer sheet, and Test/Assignment Receipt back to NRCC Instructional Support Services as soon as possible after completion; mail any remaining tests back to NRCC Instructional Support Services at the end of the semester. Any fees for testing services or the return of tests to NRCC (cost of fax, U.S. Mail or UPS) are the responsibility of the student.
