In-Person Mock Testing Has Reopened
As of July 27th, we have reopened the Upper West Side, Upper East Side, and Bronxville offices for limited mock testing.
COVID-19 safety measures are in place to mitigate the risks of contagion, including:
- Students registered for a mock test are required to fill out an online health questionnaire attesting to their health on the morning of the exam. The questionnaire, emailed approximately 3 hours prior to the start of the test, takes no more than a minute to complete before a student heads to the office.
- When students and proctors arrive at one of our offices, they are required to wear a mask for the duration of their visit, including while testing. Masks are provided for those who do not have one. Everyone entering the office spaces are asked to sanitize their hands upon entry.
- Parents dropping off students are not permitted to enter the offices or waiting rooms. Only registered students are allowed into the offices for testing.
- Students take breaks, if tests require it, in their testing rooms and are not allowed to congregate in waiting areas of the offices.
- Students are provided with individual “goodie bags” of snacks and pencils when they arrive, so that they are not using communal snack bowls or pencil cups.
- Student desks are placed in such a manner to maintain proper social distancing and student registration numbers are limited in order to allow for enough spacing of mock testers during any one session.
- Offices are thoroughly cleaned during and after mock testing by both our proctors and professional cleaning services as we have always done in the past, and with more thorough wipedowns of surfaces such as chairs, tables, and doorknobs. Windows are open in the offices where possible and AC units are turned on in order to maximize air flows throughout the offices during use.
Please note that our proctors will turn away any students who: are not wearing masks; have not previously registered for a given test session; will not use hand sanitizer upon entry into the offices; have not completed a health questionnaire; or, are not maintaining social distancing.
