Proctoring Services for GTCC and Non-GTCC Students

The Assessment Center is pleased to offer GTCC faculty a mechanism to proctor tests for their online students, students with testing accommodations and/or GTCC students unable to attend class on a scheduled test date.

The Assessment Center also offers correspondence or proctored testing for students of other schools and universities. This service includes both paper and online exams. A proctoring fee of $20.00 per test is assessed for non-GTCC students.

In addition the Assessment Center also proctors TEAS (Test of Essential Academic Skills), TABE (Test of Adult Basic Education), and other certification tests. Please scroll down this page to the appropriate test for additional details. NOTE: The price for a TEAS test has increased. For GTCC students the fee is $73.00 and for non-GTCC students the fee is $98.00.

The TEAS (Test of Essential Academic Skills) test is one part of the criteria for admittance into one of GTCC’s limited enrollment programs associated with health careers. The TEAS test is a high demand test. The number of students desiring to take the TEAS test increases substantially prior to semester breaks, end of terms, during registration periods, and as program deadlines approach.  Plan accordingly to avoid testing delays. 

The Test of Essential Academic Skills (TEAS®) is a three hour and twenty-nine minute test that is broken into four parts and consists of multiple-choice questions covering the following:

  • Reading (64 minutes / 53 items)
  • Math (54 minutes / 36 items)
  • Science (63 minutes / 53 items)

*This version of TEAS does permit the use of a calculator during the math section. However, the calculator is embedded within the test itself you do not need to bring a calculator with you.

Due to staffing concerns, TEAS testing is only available at the GTCC Jamestown Assessment Center, 601 E. Main St. Jamestown, NC 27282 (campus location is Applied Technologies Building Room 220).

You must have the following items with you when you arrive to take the TEAS test:

GTCC students arriving at the Assessment Center without the blue TEAS pass or the online TEAS test pass will be referred to Limited Enrollment Programs Office and the current appointment will be canceled. (This is not requiredfor non-GTCC students)
  • Your ATI user ID and password. (Arriving for your appointment without an ATI user id and password may result in the rescheduling of your appointment, due to the time necessary to create the ID.) We also suggest you log into the ATI website within 48 hours prior to your scheduled appointment to confirm your user ID and password are working correctly.

A receipt from the GTCC cashier’s office confirming payment.

  • English and Language Usage – punctuation, grammar, sentence structure, contextual words, and spelling

An individual may take the TEAS test twice in a six month period.

There has been an increase in TEAS fees, effective immediately.

The testing fee for GTCC students is $73.00 and Non-GTCC students will be charged $98.00.

If you are looking for study material the ATI website suggests the use of the TEAS Study Manual, sixth edition. Do not use the outdated TEAS V study material to prepare yourself for this test. Study material can be purchased from GTCC’s Jamestown Book Store or from the ATI website www.atitesting.com.

Frequently Asked Questions – Remotely Proctored TEAS

When GTCC reopened remotely, proctoring TEAS testing was not an option at that time. The tests are exactly alike. However, GTCC recognizes that some students may not want to spend 3.5 hours in a confined space with other individuals as COVID-19 continues. The remotely proctored version does require that you complete what is being called a dry run. This ensures that both your computer and your home network will be able to provide the consistency necessary for the test.

Payment is also slightly different in that for an in-person test. You pay on the day of the test. For the remotely proctored version, payment is made online to the Cashier’s Office and must be paid at least one day in advance of the test.

It is exactly the same test. It is the process that differs slightly. The remote version does require additional tech requirements in order to maintain the integrity of the assessment and ensure uncompromised exam results.

The ATI TEAS, or Test of Essential Academic Skills, is designed specifically to assess a student's preparedness entering the health science fields.

The ATI TEAS test is comprised of 170 questions set up in a multiple-choice format with four-option answers. Questions are designed to test the basic academic skills you will need to perform in class in the areas of: Reading, Math, Science, and English and Language Usage. For additional information, see FAQs about the ATI TEAS Exam.

Before registering for the Remotely Proctored TEAS exam please ensure that you are able to complete the following.

  • Use Google Chrome™ Version 77 or later (Download).
  • Test on a PC or a Mac (a phone or tablet cannot be used)
    • PC – Windows 10 or later, minimum resolution 1024 x 600
    • Mac – Mac OS® X 10.11 or later, minimum resolution 1024 x 600
  • Enable Javascript and cookies within your Google Chrome browser.
  • Disable your popup blocker in Google Chrome browser.
  • Have a microphone – either internal or external.
  • Have a webcam (minimum resolution 320x240 VGA) – either internal or external.
  • Ensure that your Internet speed is at least 0.5 - 1 Mbps. You can test your Internet speed using Speedtest®.

Please check our online scheduler, RegisterBlast, for the most current information regarding dates and times for remotely proctored TEAS testing sessions.

A dry run is basically a practice test to ensure the device you are going to be using for the remote TEAS test is set up appropriately before you begin to test.

Because of recent changes implemented at ATI, the dry run is now available in your ATI account. Once you associate your ATI account with GTCC the dry run can be found by logging into your ATI account.

  1. Then click the MY ATI tab.
  2. Now click the TEST tab.
  3. Locate the Practice Assessment Remote Proctoring Dry Run.
  4. Click the green BEGIN button when ready. 

Don’t forget to email testingcenter@gtcc.edu when you finish the dry run as this initiates the next step.

Please download Steps for a Remote TEAS Test (PDF). The information details the process and includes screenshots.

You will have the option of canceling your remotely proctored TEAS test. You might be able to borrow a friend’s computer to take the test. But remember that the computer you use for the dry rfun must be the same one you use for the TEAS test.

ATI requires that individuals complete a dry run before attempting the remotely proctored TEAS test. This will ensure that your computer is set up correctly for the actual test.

ATI now offers remotely proctored TEAS testing as does PSI, a commercial testing entity.

The fee at GTCC for a face-to-face TEAS is $73. A remotely proctored TEAS test fee is $78. This is because ATI is charging GTCC an additional $5 to offer remote testing.

At this time, GTCC is only able to offer the remotely proctored TEAS test to GTCC students. ATI as well as PSI offer remotely proctored TEAS testing.

You will use our online scheduler – RegisterBlast to make your appointment.
