[Libs-Or] Test proctoring

We proctor tests here, including tests for Oregon State University, Eastern Oregon University, Western Governor's University,  the Oregon State Board of Tax Examiners and a few other organizations.  We get the requirements from the testing organization and enforce them.  We ask students to leave backpacks and bags with us and look over what they have with them.  We usually have students take online tests in the staff work area, which has two computers.  One the one occasion in which we were required to have a staff member in the room with the test taker, the staff member was able to quietly work on the other computer and be productive.  There is usually enough to do to enable a staff member to make good use of some quiet computer time. If your layout is not so flexible, could you have a laptop with some appropriate software on it available? Just a thought.

Do the services you provide at your library include test proctoring? If so, what guidelines have you put in place for staff proctoring tests? We occasionally receive requests, most of which are pretty easy to accommodate, but occasionally the test requires that the proctor remain in the room for the entirety of the test -- which doesn't seem like a very good use of staff time. Any thoughts?
