You can help as a proctor
End-of-year testing starts May 27 in Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools, and we need your help! Schools need proctors to lend a hand with the testing process.
A proctor’s primarily responsibility is to work with test administrators to make sure that everything is done in a fair and uniform way.
Before volunteering, proctors receive the training necessary to do the job properly. Often, the training is done in conjunction with the first session as a volunteer. As part the training, proctors learn that, as part of the state’s efforts to make sure that everything is done fairly, proctors have to be careful not to help students with questions or do anything that might suggest to a student that he might want to reconsider an answer.
Proctors need to be at least 18 years old. Because public school students cannot be proctors, high school students aren’t eligible even if they are 18. In many cases, proctors are relatives (parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles) of children who attend the school or adults who teach at the school. When that is the case, people don’t serve as proctors in classes where they have relatives.
Are you interested in being a proctor? Then please call the school where you'd like to volunteer, or call the Accountability Services Department at 336-727-2964.
