Cell Phones, Other Devices Prohibited in Testing

Cell phone use is prohibited at all Division of Personnel test centers.
Applicants are strongly encouraged not to bring cell phones into the test room.

If your phone makes noise, or you are seen using it at any time (including breaks), you may be dismissed immediately, your scores may be canceled, and the device may be confiscated. This policy also applies to other prohibited digital and/or electronic device such as a Blackberry, pager, PDA, camera, MP3 Player, iPod, headphones, recording device, or other related equipment.

Do not bring a calculator or watch/calculator unless specifically instructed to do so.

If you do bring a cell phone or other device, it must be completely turned off. It may not be on vibrate or silent. Devices (including earpieces) must be put completely away; they may not be accessed during the exam (even to check messages). They may not be kept on the testing desk. Any use of an unauthorized electronic device during a test will be considered cheating. This policy will be strictly enforced.

Communication in any form is not permitted during the test administration. Discussion or sharing of test content during and after the test is prohibited.

The State Division of Personnel reserves the right to take all action including, but not limited to, barring you from future testing and canceling your test scores for failure to comply with test administration regulations or the test proctor's directions.

Please contact the Division of Personnel immediately to report any observed inappropriate behavior, for example, someone copying from another test taker, taking a test for someone else, having access to test questions before the exam, or using any cell phone or other unauthorized equipment. All information will be held in strictest confidence.

Thank you for your cooperation.
