Testing Proctoring Faculty Information

803-777-6142 | saprctr@mailbox.sc.edu


A student in your course is registered with our office as a student with a disability. As you can see from the accompanying letter, one of the student’s classroom accommodations involves extra time to take her or his tests/quizzes/exams.

You and the student should have a conversation about how the student’s need for extra time will be accommodated.  You have the option of providing this accommodation yourself in an environment conducive to optimum performance (distractions must be limited), handling this accommodation on a departmental level in another way, or asking that we proctor this student’s tests in our office.

 

If the Office of Student Disability Services proctors the test…

  • The student should request an appointment with OSDS to take the test here at the same time/day as the class.

  • If a student needs to take the test at a different time due to class schedule conflicts or proctoring availability, we require that the student ask for your permission before scheduling the test with our office.

  • You and the student will receive a confirmation email regarding the student’s appointment for test proctoring.  This email will give you instructions on how to proceed.

  • The student will be required to present a USC ID before taking the test.  The test will be monitored by OSDS staff.

  • If a student arrives more than 15 minutes late for a test, we reserve the right to cancel the appointment and require the student to reschedule the test with you.

 

About the Tests…

  • We ask that you visit https://sawebdev.wufoo.com/forms/professors-test-proctoring-form to complete the instructions for test proctoring and upload the test before 5:00pm on the day before the test.

  • You may also choose to bring the test to LeConte 112A and complete the form in person by 5:00pm the day before the test.

  • We will scan and email the test back to you once the student has completed it.  You also have the options of picking the test up from OSDS with your USC ID, sending a designee to pick up the test with a USC ID, or having the student bring it back to you in a signed and sealed envelope.

  • Tests to be given to students who are blind and need to take the test in Braille will need to be submitted at least 1 week before the test date to give us time to Braille the test.

 

PLEASE NOTE:

If a student is caught cheating or suspected of cheating, the student will be referred directly to the Office of Student Conduct.  You will be notified of this referral by email.
