Becoming a Testing Event Proctor
Proctors are a vital part of the Homeschool Testing Services team. They are the people that administer the test directly to the students. You will work closely with the coordinator to set up the testing rooms and organize the testing material for the event. You will be provided with a detailed script that explains everything you need to direct the individual tests. Your coordinator is there to help you with any questions you may have.
Before proceeding with the application process, please talk with your local Test Coordinator about your local testing event. You can find a list of our testing events by visiting the Testing Event Locator page. The event listing will provide the name and email address of the test coordinator you will need to contact.
- Four year degree at an accredited college or university
- Must have experience or complete a free Homeschool Testing Service Training session. The training will cover items such as test security, basic standardized testing parameters, and administration.

- Proctors are interviewed by local test coordinator
- Please fill out Proctor application and upload your college diploma.
Let’s talk about the Bachelor’s degree.
There is A LOT of grace with this position, but, I’m afraid, this is not one of them. You will need to send us a digital copy (picture) of your Bachelor’s degree from an accredited college. I’m afraid it cannot be your Master’s degree, transcript or your teaching certificate. It can only be your Bachelor’s certificate. If you’ve moved and it’s in storage, then you’ll need to find it. If it’s in the basement of your parent’s home, then you’ll need to ask them to get it for you. If you’ve had a house fire and lost everything (Yes, sadly this has happened), then you’ll need to contact your college and get another copy. If you can’t get your hands on this right now, then please take the necessary steps to do this so you’re ready when it’s time for the application.
