As a service to its membership and the general public, the American Library in Paris is available as an authorized site for supervised testing for students in distance-learning programs, on independent study, or away from their campuses at examination times.
Exams are monitored in one of the Library’s isolated, sound-proof rooms. Qualified Library personnel supervise examinations on behalf of host educational institutions and ensure that testing materials are ready for the exam period and returned to the school.
Proctoring services are available Tuesday through Saturday beginning at 10:30, concluding at 18:00, and Thursday until 21:00. Test monitoring is not normally offered Sunday or Monday. Fees are 95€ for the first two hours or portion thereof, and 25€ each additional 30 minutes or portion thereof.
Please note the following:
- Proctoring requests must be received by email at least two (2) weeks prior to the examination date. Indicate your school and course name/number, whether your exam is written or online, the duration of the exam, and if it requires specific equipment or software (headphones, browser version).
- On the day of the test, students are expected to bring proper photo identification (student ID, passport, driver’s license).
- Payment may be made by cash, check, or debit/credit card. The Library will issue a receipt. Some institutions cover the examination fee for students; in such cases arrangements must be made prior to the scheduled exam session.
