Proctoring Exams

Proctoring Exams (Non-SD Mines tests)

The School of Mines Registrar & Academic Services offers its services to students and members of the community as a "testing site" for other school’s tests.

The student is responsible for ensuring that appropriate contact and proctoring forms are sent from the school to Thomas Mahon, Associate Registrar/Database Administrator, ( well in advance of the student’s desired testing date.

The Office of the Registrar is not responsible for acquisition of testing materials or Internet logins or passwords. As a part of the arrangement between the student and their school, required materials are sent by the school directly to the SD Mines Assistant Coordinator of Academic Support via mail or email.

The student calls the SD Mines Registrar & Academic Services office to schedule requested testing dates and times. There is no implied guarantee testing can occur by a particular date or at requested times. Testing can be arranged between 8 a.m. and noon, Monday through Friday.

The school sending the test must inform SD Mines if there are time constraints on the test, if it is open or closed book/notes, if a calculator is allowed, if scratch paper can be used, if there are limitations on who can administer the test or where the test is administrated, if breaks are allowed, if specific (computer) windows are not allowed to be accessed, and who the campus contact person and phone number is in the event of a problem before, during or after the test.

The student makes arrangements for testing materials to be returned, including proper Internet submission or postage arrangements.

The student is not allowed to mail their testing materials themselves.

Testing services for non-SD Mines tests are $15.00 per test or $15.00 per hour. Check, credit card or cash are all acceptable.
