Exam Proctors

Proctoring for the AMCA

All exam administrations will be monitored by qualified proctors who are trained and approved by AMCA. To ensure that proctors are familiar with test center security measures as well as test administration procedures, AMCA provides a mandatory Proctor Training in which proctors receive instructions on checking candidate identification, seating candidates, security of test materials, proctoring, and addressing candidate misconduct.

Proctor Requirements

  • Be at least 18 years of age   
  • Be a staff member of the AMCA Approved Testing Site   
  • Not be in a faculty role in the particular program being tested   
  • Complete AMCA Proctor Training   
  • Read and follow the proctor regulations as set forth by the AMCA   
  • Maintain confidentiality of exam information including questions, exam materials, and candidate information   
  • Read and sign the Proctor’s Oath, which includes a Conflict of Interest Agreement, and return it to AMCA. AMCA requires proctors sign and comply with its Proctors Oath to protect the interests of all employees and candidates, ensure proctors have no conflict of interest, and to maintain security and fairness of its exams.   

Adding Exam Proctors to an AMCA Test Site Account

All AMCA national certification exams must be proctored by an AMCA approved proctor. The exam proctor is required to be a staff member of the Test Site issuing the exam but may not have a vested interest in the outcome of the exam.

To add a proctor to your AMCA Test Site account:

1) Go to www.AMCAexams.com.

2) Log into your Test Site account.

3) Click the “Proctor List” button.

4) Enter Proctor Name and Email address, hit submit.

5) The proctors name will now appear in the proctor list as “pending” until they complete proctor training and submit “Proctor Oath”. Upon completion of the AMCA Proctor Training and submission of the Proctor’s Oath, proctors are approved for 1 year. After 1 year, they must repeat the Proctor Training and submit a new Proctor’s Oath.

Incident Reporting for Proctors

Proctors are responsible for monitoring for signs of cheating or other misconduct during the exam. AMCA’s Proctor Training program provides information on the signs of cheating or other irregularities and how to handle them during the exam.

AMCA Certification Board has the right to invalidate exam scores if it suspects that any irregularities or deviations from standard testing policies may have occurred during an examination administration. This includes but is not limited to testing irregularities involving the candidate, test or agents administering the exam (proctor or test administrator). In the event of a candidate violating the testing rules of conduct, the Proctor can suspend the testing session, remove the candidate from the testing session and notify the AMCA by submitting an Incident Form.

Once the proctor’ allegations are investigated by the Certification Board, the AMCA has the right to cancel test scores, and or deem a candidate ineligible to retake any AMCA exam. If necessary, the AMCA reserves the right to contact the candidate’s employer, any regulatory body or law enforcement if necessary.
