Test Proctoring


The Kingsport Public Library provides exam proctoring services by appointment.

Requests must be turned in one week before the date of the test.

How do I schedule an exam?

Call the Reference Desk 423-224-2539 or click here to contact us via email. You will be assigned a proctor at the library who will work with you to schedule your test(s). Once your exam has been scheduled, it is your responsibility to make arrangements with your testing institution to send exam materials/passwords to the proctoring site. Please notify us regarding any changes that develop. Tests received without an appointment made in advance will be returned.

What does the Library do for test proctoring?

The librarian who is your test proctor will verify student IDs, present exam materials, review exam instructions, and monitor students from a distance and keep track of the exam time.

Are there any fees associated with test proctoring at the Kingsport Library?

There is no fee for the proctoring service.

What kinds of exams can the Library proctor?

Both online and paper exams can be proctored. Paper exams that are mailed or emailed to us can be proctored.

Completed exams can be scanned and emailed as attachments.

If your testing institution requires that tests be returned by mail, the student is responsible for all delivery costs. A return envelope addressed to the testing institution and the appropriate amount of postage (stamps) or a pre-paid commercial delivery envelope must be supplied by the student if it has not been included with the exam.

Is there a Study Room or classroom I can use to take the exam?

The library cannot offer a classroom setting. Our tables and computers are in a public space, and complete quiet and privacy are not always available. Study Rooms may be available for paper exams, but these must be reserved ahead of time to guarantee a space.

What should you do on the day of the exam?

Please arrive promptly at the scheduled time. Bring your photo ID and any other allowable testing materials (e.g., calculator, pen, pencil, scratch paper, notes). If you bring personal belongings with you- such as purses, backpacks, and cell phones- they will need to be surrendered to the library staff during the exam.
