Test Proctoring Information

Students enrolled in Bellevue University Online Courses that require proctored testing and who do not live in the physical service area of the Bellevue University Test Center must nominate and gain prior approval of a proctor who will monitor course tests. A new proctor nomination form is required for each term and for each class. However, an email to onltest@bellevue.edu is all that is needed if you will be using a previously approved test proctor.

Students living within the Greater Omaha metro area must take their tests at the Bellevue University Main Campus Test Center or the Lozier Campus Test Center. You can make an appointment to take a test during our regularly scheduled testing hours by:

  • Logging into BRUIN, and click My Info category.
  • Under Student Resources, click Test Center Help.
  • Click the Schedule a Test Form.
  • Click Schedule an Online Class Test or a Make-up Test.
  • Complete the requested information.
  • You will receive a confirmation email.

Also, you may schedule your test by stopping by the Test Center located in LCN 522, by emailing testing@bellevue.edu, or by calling 402-557-7428.

** All tests must be turned in when the Test Center closes.

TEST PROCTORS

A test proctor is an individual who agrees to receive a student’s test(s) at the test proctor’s business email address. The test proctor also agrees to administer the received student’s test (s) adhering to the instructions provided from Bellevue University. The test(s) will be ethically and professionally administered in a suitable testing environment (e.g., college/library or conference room) to ensure standards of academic integrity are maintained. The test proctor will return the completed test(s) to the Bellevue University Test Center via email or fax immediately after administering the test. If required, the test proctor will mail the test within one (1) work day of administering the test to the Bellevue University Test Center.

Test proctors certify in writing that the student completed the test according to the specific instructions provided in the test proctor guidelines letter. Each test proctor the student nominates must be acting in the official capacity in one of the following positions:

  • College or University Personnel: Professional Staff Member of an adult/continuing education office, Librarian, or Test Center personnel.
  • Armed Forces Education Office Personnel
  • Public Personnel: Civil Service Examiner, Librarian for City/County, HR Professional, or Education/Training Coordinator.

*The following persons do not qualify as test proctors:

  • Co-workers, someone who reports to you or your immediate supervisor
  • Relatives, Friends, or Neighbors

NOMINATING A PROCTOR

Students are responsible for identifying, nominating, and coordinating the arrangements for the proctoring of their tests. This includes the payment of any fees for services and for the return of test materials to Bellevue University Test Center (e.g., cost of FAX or postage). The test proctor must be able to receive the student’s test(s) via a business email as attachments. The Bellevue University Test Center does not accept Yahoo, AOL, G-mail, Hotmail, or etc. email addresses.

If the student is unable to find a suitable test proctor, s/he must contact the Bellevue University Test Center for assistance immediately via email.

PROCTOR NOMINATION FORM

Students will use the Proctor Nomination Form for nomination and approval of a proctor. The student will complete the top part of the form for each course s/he is taking, even if the same proctor is used for all tests. The student must click on the submit button for the data to be electronically transmitted to the Bellevue University Test Center.

TIMELINE

Proctor nominations must be completed and submitted by the student within two (2) weeks after the course begins. The proctor will be called by the Bellevue University Test Center to verify information. Once the proctor is approved, an email notice will be forwarded to the student.

WHAT HAPPENS NEXT

The Bellevue University Test Center will email the testing materials with specific administration and return instructions to the designated proctor approximately two (2) or three (3) days before the testing date(s). It is the proctor's responsibility to return the materials immediately to the Bellevue University Test Center for grading. The cost of returning the test materials is the student’s responsibility.

IF PROBLEMS ARISE

If any problems arise with the student’s proctor arrangements, the Test Center must be informed immediately via email or phone: (800) 756-7920 Ext. 557-7427 or (402) 557-7427.
