Course Coordinator Responsibilities:

The Course Coordinator will:

  1. Identify the students who require proctors.
  2. Notify students that proctors must not be close personal friends or family members, and work managers are not advised. Proctors can include librarians, administrative staff, teachers, military officers, clergy, or testing or tutoring resource people at another college.
  3. Provide instructions and testing schedule to students and proctors. The specific testing dates should be the same for all remote students in the course. If an exception needs to be made in the test schedule, arrangements need to be made by the course coordinator, testing coordinator, and the proctor. Information about where the student’s course and test are located (e.g. Blackboard, course number) and if the student can use any course materials during the test should be provided to the proctor.
  4. Coordinate with Testing Coordinator concerning test password(s) and dates for proctors. Prior to administering the tests, course coordinators should notify proctors of the test password and any specific instructions.
  5. Work with testing coordinator or IT to maximize test security measures prior to administering the test.

Student Responsibilities:

The Student will:

  1. Identify a proctor and notify the course coordinator of the proctor contact information prior to the date listed in the syllabus. Any fees charged by the proctor will be the student’s responsibility.
  2. Schedule the test with the proctor during the allotted dates/times.
  3. Bring a photo ID, the answer sheet, and a pencil to the test.
  4. Do not bring any material (e.g. purses, backpacks, cell phones) except those allowed by the course coordinator (e.g. a blank answer sheet and “scratch” paper) into the testing area.
  5. Document your answers on an answer sheet and leave both the answer sheet and any “scratch” paper used during the test with the proctor when the test has been concluded.
  6. Remain in the testing area except in an emergency.
  7. Log into the computer and Blackboard course management system to begin the test and log out of the computer at the end of the test.
