Proctors & Testing

Some online courses offered through the ICCOC require you to use a proctor for one or all of the quizzes and/or exams within the course.  A proctor administers your exam or quiz for you and must be present while you are taking the exam.  

If a course requires a proctor, the instructor will provide this information in the syllabus.  The ICCOC has tried to identify all courses that require a proctor by placing a (P) after the course title and section number in the
ICCOC Course Schedule .
Student Responsibilities 
As a student enrolled in a course that has proctored exams, it is your responsibility to:
  • Locate a proctor or a testing center where a proctor is located
  • Get your proctor/testing center approved by your instructor
  • Provide your proctor's contact information (name, phone number and email address) to your instructor
  • Schedule an appointment with your testing center for each quiz/exam to be proctored.  Each of our partner colleges has a Testing Center located on its campuses.
Don't live near a testing center at one of our partner college's locations?
  • Students may be required to pay a Proctor Fee if they select a site that is not located at one of the ICCOC partner colleges.
  • Check with the local college or university within your community to see if it offers testing/proctoring services; be sure to ask if the proctor/testing center charges a fee for the service
  • The local librarian at your community's public library may offer proctoring services
  • Perhaps, the Principal/Guidance Counselor at your local school would agree to be your proctor
  • Your Supervisor or Human Resources Manager may be willing to proctor your exams 
  • Some instructors may give students to use a Remote Proctoring System that will require identification and record video and audio of the student during the exam.  This Remote Proctoring Service will require the students to pay a fee at the time of the exam.
Your instructor has final approval of your proctor/testing location.  Be sure to contact your instructor at the beginning of the term to have your proctor approved and to share contact information of your proctor.
