Exam Proctoring

Okotoks Public Library offers exam proctoring/invigilation for individuals taking distance education courses, with priority given for residents who live within our service area (Town of Okotoks & the Municipal District of Foothills). Please note that Okotoks Public Library will not accept invigilation requests for grade school/high school assessments.

Okotoks Public Library's Exam Proctoring Service is fully booked for the month of April 2024 and will no longer accept any bookings for April.

Please note that exam proctoring will be unavailable between the dates of May 9th through 22nd, as well as May 31st through June 16th.

Exams may be written on Mondays between the hours of 5:00 PM - 8:30 PM (finishing by 8:30 PM), and Tuesdays through Thursdays between the hours of 10:00 AM - 4:30 PM (finishing by 4:30 PM)

Exams may be booked up to 3 months ahead of time, and must be booked at least one week ahead of time. Last-minute bookings generally will not be accepted.

A minimum 24 hours notice is required for cancellation or rescheduling of exams.

Effective July 4, 2022 all exam writers will be charged an invigilation fee of $25 per exam, as well as any additional costs incurred (printing, postage, etc.), to be paid on the day of the exam, prior to writing.

Exams are written in our private study rooms, with one student per room. Lockers will be provided, outside of the exam writing room, for personal belongings. Students will be monitored periodically through the window of the study room, but library staff are unable to stay in the room for the entire duration of the exam. Please confirm with your school or institution that these conditions match their exam proctoring requirements before booking an exam.
