Proctoring for Non-JJC Courses 

 

Proctored Testing for non-JJC Courses is synonymous with outside proctoring. Please note that the Academic Skills Center does not collect students' homework. Students must submit homework to their instructors.  Please also note that Outside Proctoring is unavailable during Final Exams Weeks during the fall and spring semestersClick here to view the JJC Academic Calendar.

Special Accommodations

A student may request earplugs to block out noise distractions. Students with documented disabilities have the ability to work with the Student Accommodations and Resources (StAR) Department to arrange for further accommodations including screen magnification, Braille, sign language interpreters to help with instructions, large print or audio books, scribes, and trac-balls. To contact the StAR Department, please call (815) 280-2230.

Steps to Take the Test

Speak with your institution about having your test proctored at the Joliet Junior College Academic Skills Center. It is your institution's responsibility to complete the Non-JJC Course Exam Submission Form.

Prior to testing..

1. Student contacts his/her institution about having exam(s) proctored at the Joliet Junior College Academic Skills Center on Main Campus.

2. Student's institution completes the Non-JJC Course Exam Submission FormInstitutions are strongly discouraged to email test submission information to a single ASC staff member as ASC staff work at multiple campuses and may be unavailable during the day of testing.  In order to best serve students, please adhere to these guidelines.  In cases where materials are not submitted appropriately, the ASC cannot be held responsible for turning away testers when materials are not easily accessible.

3. Once the form has been submitted, student and institution will receive separate confirmation emails.

4. Once this email has been received, the student should call the Academic Skills Center to schedule an appointment.  Appointments are available Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday when the college is open.  Appointments are only scheduled up to 10 business days in advance.  Drop-in testing is not available for this service.

  • The JJC ASC does not have the ability to download the Respondus program from other institutions.  Alternatives to this method include providing a paper/pencil copy or securing the exam with a password instead of the lockdown browser.
  • The JJC ASC will not allow students to bring in laptops or other electronic devices.
  • The JJC ASC does not have the capability to provide a 1:1 ratio of proctors to testers.  All Outside Proctoring takes place in a large group lab.
