Test Proctoring

Policies & Procedures

NWC CTD Testing Policies

  • Clients must schedule testing appointments at least 72 hours in advance during business hours. No same day walk-ins will be taken. Proctors will determine availability - days and times are limited. 

  • Students will need to present one valid form of picture ID before testing. Student ID, driver’s license, military ID, and passports are a valid form of ID. No one will be admitted without a current, valid ID.

  • The Testing Center will be closed on all weekends and school holidays and as posted. If the Testing Center must close at other times, scheduled clients will be notified.

  • Test appointments will be scheduled on the hour and half-hour. Appointments will be taken on a first-come, first-served basis and once the Testing Center is full, no more students will be scheduled at that time. 
  • If unable to keep an appointment, students must call to reschedule PRIOR to scheduled appointment rather than showing up at an alternate time.

  • Cellular phones must be turned off while in the Testing Center and, together with all other personal items including watches, must be placed in one of the secure lockers (or secure location) provided by the Testing Center.

  • Pockets will be empty during testing.
  • No hoods, coats, jackets, or hats are allowed in the testing room.

  • All scratch paper and writing utensils will be supplied by the Testing Center.

  • No food or drinks, other than bottled water in a clear plastic container with all labels removed, will be allowed in the Testing Room. All water that is allowed must be kept on the floor, not on the desktop.

  • No children are allowed in the Testing Center.

  • ADA testing is available to candidates with documented needs. Please contact the Testing Center in advance of testing to arrange for necessary documentation.

  • Just a reminder -- strong odors (i.e. perfume, lotions) can be offensive or dangerous to other testing candidates. Clients with strong odors may be asked to leave and reschedule their testing appointment.
