Fall 2022

The Office of Student Accessibility Services (SAS), located in the Office of Institutional Equity (OIE), seeks graduate students who have an interest in working with students with disabilities as exam proctors for the SAS Testing Center.

About the role: As an exam proctor you will support a student’s learning by monitoring the testing environment. Students may have testing accommodations for a number of different reasons, in which they need extended time and/or a distraction-reduced environment to test in.
Maintaining a distraction-reduced testing environment is essential for student focusing and processing purposes, therefore the role of the exam proctor provides crucial support.
At times, students may also have other testing accommodations which could include assistance with writing and/or reading an exam. Students may need additional support in these areas for a number of different reasons, for example a temporary or long-term physical injury or condition, a visual impairment or a learning difference. The exam proctor may be asked to provide this support when appropriate.

Responsibilities: To monitor the SAS Testing Center as an exam proctor by ensuring students with testing accommodations are provided all necessary materials and a distraction-reduced testing environment.
 To work in a professional, helpful and distraction-reduced manner while ensuring that student confidentiality is maintained at all times.
 To complete and return all relevant paperwork accurately and promptly.
 To engage in training relevant to the role and occasional supervision/team meetings where relevant.
 To provide adequate notice if you are unable to proctor on a scheduled day and ensure notification of any changes to your availability for work or contact details.
