Online Testing Option
You may take your TECEP exam online using the University’s Online Proctoring Service (OPS). By choosing this option, you can test in the comfort of your home while being proctored in real time. To use the OPS, you will need a webcam, a computer with a microphone and speakers, and a reliable high-speed Internet connection.
Pen/Paper Testing Option
You may take any TECEP exam except MUS-221 and ENG-202 in the pen/paper format. The Proctor Request Form can be submitted electronically. You will need to provide the name and contact information of a full-time employee of an accredited college/university or a public library. We recommend you find a location close to your home or work so you have easy access on your test day. If you choose a local college or university, you must use a full-time member of the testing office, a full-time professor or a full-time professional staff member. If you choose your local library, you must use a full-time librarian.
We do not send exams to adjuncts or part-time professors, elementary/high school librarians, employers, corporate training offices, supervisors, members of the clergy, family members or friends. Thomas Edison State University reserves the right to require modification of your proposed proctoring arrangements.
Testing Outside the United States
If you are overseas, you must contact the OTA at email@example.com before you register for your TECEP. Online testing is not always possible for overseas students because a minimum of two uninterrupted hours of connectivity is required.
Testing for Members of the Military
The Online Proctoring Service (OPS) may not be possible for military students who have restrictions on Internet access or connectivity issues due to location. Pen/paper exams may be the best option. Please use the Proctor Request Form designed specifically for military personnel.
