Testing Proctoring Faculty Information

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

You may have a student in your course who is registered with our office as a student with a disability. One of the student’s classroom accommodations may involve extra time to take her or his tests/quizzes/exams. Prior to receiving any approved accommodations, the student must self-identify themselves to their faculty members and discuss the manner in which their accommodations will be provided for. The student must request a “letter to professor” using an online request form. This letter is your notification of approved accommodations for the student.  

If the Office of Student Disability Services proctors the test…

  • The student should complete a test proctoring request form online at least 7 days before the exam.

  • 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 request 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.

 

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 or sending a designee to pick up the test with a USC ID.

  • 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.
