Test proctoring

We're glad to serve as a proctoring site for your professional or student examination. Contact us at help@dppl.org if you have questions or want to set up an exam. Here's what you need to know:

What does test proctoring cost?

Nothing! Our test proctoring service is free! And, you don't have to live in Des Plaines nor have a Des Plaines Public Library card.

Scheduling your exam

Test proctoring is available:

  • By appointment
  • No proctoring on Sunday

You must contact us at least one week before you need to take your exam.

Please note:  If you do not confirm your testing date and time, or do confirm and do not show up, we will decline proctoring services.

How test proctoring works

For paper exams

We can book a private study room (with a door) on the fourth floor for you. Library staff does not stay in the room with you.

For online exams

You can use a library laptop computer in a private study room on the fourth floor. Again, library staff does not stay in the room with you. If permitted (or required), you can take your test on an Internet-access desktop computer for adults in the public area on the (fourth) floor.
