Testing and Proctoring

About Proctoring

If your course evaluation includes testing, you may be required to arrange for a person at a business address to proctor your tests. This could be a company human relations person, a local teacher, librarian, etc. Each instructor has different requirements and deadlines for identifying a proctor. Please check with your instructor for details about their proctor requirements.

Proctor Criteria

Proctor must have a business address. Suggested personnel include those from the court system, public library, place of employment or local education institution as generally considered good candidates.

Family members, friends and co-workers cannot serve as proctors.

Testing Environment

  • Internet connectivity as required for course,
  • Writing surface and seating for student,
  • Quiet to allow for student to concentrate,
  • Within line of sight and hearing range of proctor,
  • Secure with only allowable resources within access of student.

The designated faculty for the course evaluates the information and decides whether the proposed test environment and proctor meet the required criteria.

The designated faculty member for the course will communicate to the student through written or e-mail notification the approval status of the proposed test environment and proctor.

If the proposed test environment or proctor do not meet the requirements for any reason, the student may repeat the previous steps and resubmit a proctor prior to beginning the course.
