What are the rules on Devices at the test centre

What are the rules on Devices at the test centre

We mention cell phones and electronics often, and for good reason here is a list of the rules on devices at the test centre. Your scores will be canceled if you don’t follow the rules around devices.

Things to keep in mind:

Test administration staff reserves the right to collect and hold cell phones and other prohibited electronic devices during the test administration, including during break periods.

If your device makes noise, or if you are seen using it, or if you attempt to access it at any time, including breaks, you will be dismissed immediately, your scores can be canceled, and the device may be confiscated.

The College Board is not responsible for loss or damage to personal items, including electronic devices, while you are in the test center.

To ensure that no one gets an unfair advantage on test day, test center staff are required to collect and hold cell phones and other prohibited electronic devices during the test administration. You may not use or access the device until testing is complete.

Test centers are serious about security and quiet, so prohibited devices must be turned off and collected. Whenever possible, leave these devices at home.

If your device makes noise or you are seen using it at any time before testing is complete, including during breaks, it is grounds for immediate dismissal and score cancellation. The device may be confiscated and its contents inspected. The College Board is not responsible for loss or damage to personal items, including electronic devices, while you are in the test center.

 

1. Before Testing Begins

When you enter the testing room, be sure to disable any alarms (including your watch alarm, if you have one) and power off all cell phones and other electronic devices.

Follow the proctor’s instructions regarding device collection.

2. During Testing

Your devices should remain off during testing.

You may not use or access these devices during breaks. If you use prohibited devices before testing is complete your scores will be canceled.

3. After Testing

After testing is complete, you may retrieve your devices when the proctor indicates it is okay to do so.

4. Prohibited Devices

Prohibited devices include, but are not limited to:

  • Cell phones or smartphones
  • Audio players/recorders, tablets, laptops, notebooks, Google Glass, or any other personal computing devices
  • Separate timers of any type
  • Cameras or any other photographic equipment
  • Any devices, including digital watches, that can be used to record, transmit, receive, or play back audio, photographic, text, or video content (with the exception of CD players used for Language with Listening Subject Tests only)
