As the number of KCTCS students participating in distance learning continues to increase, more faculty are requiring proctored exams. This page has been developed as a faculty guideline for requesting proctored exams from, and communicating with, area testing centers. Within the framework of the KCTCS Home College Model, a responsibility of the Distance Learning Instructor (DLI) will be to effectively manage the timely distribution of tests requiring a proctor for students enrolled in online classes.
Proctored exams require students to take an examination in a controlled location under the supervision of a proctor who monitors students during the exam period. A proctored exam permits instructors to limit student access to certain materials such as books, notes, and the Internet and to verify the identity of the individual taking the exam.
In a situation where a student cannot travel to a KCTC proctor center, instructor and student shall agree upon the appropriate proctoring environment such as employer, faculty, library, public school.
