Proctor Site - ASLPI

ASLPI Proctor Site
Welcome to the Proctor site!! Thank you so much for your willingness to assist ASL Diagnostic and Evaluation Services (ASL-DES) in making the ASLPI accessible to examinees nationwide. Given that we cannot be there to provide the direct oversight for the language proficiency testing, we rely on Proctors from around the country to work with our office to ensure the evaluations take place in accordance with system protocol, processes and procedures.

Site Requirements for a Distance/Remote ASLPI
For a distance/remote ASLPI, the examinee has identified your place of business as a site that meets the requirements listed below. The examinee will be located at your place of business and the ASLPI Evaluator will conduct the evaluation via video technology from another location. Please ensure that the space at your place of business that will be utilized for the distance/remote evaluation complies with the following requirements:
  • Private, undisturbed area
    • No recording of the evaluation at the proctored site
    • No interruptions for the duration (20-25 minutes)
    • No one observing the evaluation as it is taking place
  • VP 200, N-VP, Z, P3, Fuzebox (or other video conferencing that is tested for compatibility)
  • Chair (no arms, no wheels, no swivel mechanism)
  • "Clutter-free" area behind examinee
  • Limited direct and excessive sunlight
  • ***Do not use wireless or wifi connection. Use ethernet cable or DSL connection***

Proctor Requirements for a Distance/Remote ASLPI
A proctor is required for all distance/remote ASLPIs. The proctor must be an employee of the place of business, institution or agency. Students at educational institutions may not serve as ASLPI proctors, nor can the proctor be personally affiliated (i.e., friend or relative) with the examinee. The proctor must have some signing skills; however, high level proficiency is not required. The proctor is not involved with the evaluation. The proctor assures ASL-DES that the evaluation will take place in accordance with the system processes and protocol. The proctor also ensures the evaluation is not recorded in any fashion.

Set-Up Check
The set-up check must take place at least one week in advance of the evaluation date. The set-up check provides us with an opportunity to meet the proctor and check the video technology, clarity, connection, lighting, background and surrounding environment to ensure they are suitable for the evaluation. This should only take a few minutes if the proctor prepares the area in advance in accordance with the site requirements.

Proctor Compensation
For the proctor's time and assistance with the oversight of this formal language testing, the examinee will compensate the proctor in the amount of $20.00. We leave it to the discretion of the proctor to collect or waive this compensation. If your office charge more for proctoring services, please communicate that to the examinee directly.

If you are collecting the proctor compensation, please do not be shy about asking the examinee to provide the compensation on the day of the evaluation, and before the evaluation begins. The examinee is aware that proctor compensation is required for a distance/remote evaluation. If you would like to receive the proctor compensation in advance of the evaluation date, please make that known in email when the scheduling process is taking place. We will ensure the examinee is aware of that.
