CWR candidates who choose the proctored hard-copy examination format must submit the name and contact information of the individual they would like to serve as proctor for approval. This may be filled out and submitted online through the CWR™ website.
A proctor is a person who supervises the taking of an examination to assure that all rules are followed. CWR candidates who choose the proctored hard-copy format must submit the name and contact information of the individual they would like to serve as proctor for approval. Potential proctors must not be a supervisor, co-worker, related to the candidate, live at the same address as the candidate, or have a vested interest in the candidate’s results (e.g., a center rehabilitation manager).
A hard-copy testing packet is sent directly to a candidate-identified and staff-approved proctor. The packet includes a paper copy of the exam, instructions for administering the exam and a self-addressed, stamped enveloped with which to return the exam for grading. Proctors are not provided with an answer key.
Once the exam has been graded, candidates will be notified of the results via email (or mail if an email address has not been provided). Hard-copy documentation is mailed to candidates who pass. Candidates who do not pass will receive information on re-testing opportunities via email (or mail if an email address has not been provided).
Acceptable proctors include, but are not limited to:
- Secondary level or higher public or private school teachers and/or administrators
- Private testing center personnel
- Notaries public
- Members of the clergy
