Exam Proctoring?

Hi all,

Desperately hoping that someone here can help me out. I'm a student in the US, but currently living in Switzerland. I have a few exams that I need to take, and am required to have a proctor to administer them. Ideally the proctor will be a librarian or academic of some sort. Can anyone help/recommend a person? Proctoring requires very little effort. I would provide the proctors email to my professor who would then email the password to the exam. I would meet the proctor and have them "open" the exam for me. They can continue to work while I take the exam. I have two exams that should take less than 1 hour each. Thank you for any and all assistance!

Please shoot me a PM if you know of anyone that might be able to help. I've contacted all of the local universities and they say that they cannot do this. Thank you!

Contact Webster University in Geneva..they have a person specializing in that.

Re: Exam Proctoring?

When I needed to take exams, the price Webster University
quoted was outrageous. I ended up flying to the United States,
where any public library can proctor an exam, and they did
not even charge!

Re: Exam Proctoring?

A few ideas came to mind. Perhaps try the international schools,
where the expats send their children for schooling:

e.g. http://www.zis.ch

Or perhaps, you can search http://apps.collegeboard.com/cbsearc...TestCenter.jsp for international locations that offer
the CLEP exam. They should be able to proctor non-clep exams as well.

On the CLEP search for Germany, the Black Forest Academy comes up.
