Proctoring Paper/Written Exams

When an exam is accessible, an approved proctor must keep in mind that:

  • The computer used to access and upload the exam must be the same computer or terminal used to complete the proctor approval form.
  • The student must schedule a time and place to take proctored exams.
  • The proctor will receive an e-mail with a link to a downloadable PDF of the exam along with instructions.
  • The proctor must print the exam for the student to complete.
  • The proctor administers the exam to the student according to the exam instructions.
  • After the exam is complete, the proctor must scan and upload the exam to the link provided in the exam e-mail.
  • The student should not have access to this e-mail nor the completed exam unless otherwise noted by the instructor.
