Some online courses require students to take proctored exams. A proctored exam is one that is overseen by an individual (called a proctor) who monitors or supervises a student while he or she is taking the exam. The proctor ensures the security and integrity of the exam process.
Your course syllabus should contain the necessary information regarding proctored exams. If you’re unsure, ask your instructor. All proctors and proctored sites should be established at the beginning of the semester. Failure to do so may result in missing your testing deadline, receiving an incomplete grade for the course, or both.
