3. Sign Up For Jobs
Once you have been approved to be a DSP Proctor you will need to participate in a brief orientation session, after which you are eligible to accept proctoring assignments. To sign up for a job, click on the Sign Up For Jobs tab.
You will see a list of available proctoring requests, sorted by exam date. Proctor type is shown under the Proctor heading – Active Proctors receive a higher rate of pay than Non-Active proctors because these jobs involve interacting with the student either as a scribe, a reader or a tracker. Click on the View button adjacent to an assignment to view the details of that assignment.
The detailed view of the assignment shows the time at which you are to pick up the exam, the start and end time for the exam and the time at which you are to drop off the exam. It will also show the location of the exam and where to pick up and drop off the exam. Any special notes pertaining to the exam will be displayed in one or more of the boxes at the bottom. There may be one or several students in the same exam room who are to be proctored. Their names are shown at the top. In order to accept an assignment, click the box marked Sign Up for Job.
You will be asked to confirm the assignment by checking the box which indicates that this is a final acceptance of the assignment. Once you have agreed to accept an assignment, you must complete your responsibility by proctoring the exam. You will receive an email confirmation and, in the event additional students are added to the exam, you will receive their information as well. When you have confirmed this agreement, the job will be moved under the tab called My Jobs.
