Guidelines in the Proctored Exam Setting

  • Testing locations do not always have clocks. Bring a watch. However, cellphones/smart watches are not permitted.
  • Arrive to testing location ON TIME with appropriate materials allowed for exam (pen, pencil, blue, book, calculator, etc.). If you arrive late, the time will not be added.
  • Know your accommodations and which accommodations you have requested to use during the exam.
  • Know how long you have and know your end time. If you think the length of time is incorrect, check with testing staff prior to starting your exam. Keep track of your time during the exam.
  • Notify your CAE Counselor of any changes in disability or medical condition (these changes may necessitate a change in your proctoring accommodations).
  • Notify Testing Center staff via email (caetesting@saonet.ucla.edu) if you decide to cancel an exam.
  • If you have a question during an exam, let the proctor know. The proctor may be able to contact professors via phone or email. If not, a proctor may escort you to the classroom to speak directly to the professor or one of the TAs
  • All students must notify the Proctor when leaving a testing room (e.g. to use the restroom or to take a break).
  • When testing with CAE our expectation is that all students abide by the Student Conduct Code.
