Proctoring Exams

Students of distance education courses may request exam proctoring at Hamersly Library. We are unable to handle the demand to proctor WOU classes or programs (i.e., make-up exams, entrance or placement exams). We recommend those be handled within the department or division.

Janeanne Rockwell-Kincanon, Public Services Librarian, administers the proctoring program, but frequently assigns proctoring duties & responsibilities to other library faculty or staff to accommodate scheduling requests. The specific proctor depends on the day and time arranged for the exam. In general, proctoring is available Mondays-Fridays 9 a.m.-6 p.m.

There is no charge for this service.

Instructions for Students:

Submit the proctor contact information below to your instructor or distance education office.

Determine when you would like to take your exam, within the time frame allowed by your professor. We can accommodate exams during the library’s weekday hours, with occasional flexibility into the evenings.

Arrange your exam appointment by contacting Janeanne Rockwell-Kincanon (see below). When requesting an appointment, please indicate

  • Your professor’s name and the course number
  • Your preference for date and time to begin the exam
  • The time allotted for the exam (how long will your reservation be?)

Bring your photo ID and any required or allowed materials with you to your exam at the Hamersly Library. (driving directions).  Tell the staff at the Information Desk you are here for a proctored exam.

If necessary, obtain a guest parking permit at the Information Desk.
