IMPORTANT: Students MUST go through their instructors for proctoring information. Please do NOT contact me because I am not authorized to assist with exam proctoring.
Have you considered requiring your students to use a proctor to take online exams? The process of proctoring an exam can be difficult and confusing for everyone involved, including the students, faculty, and even the proctors. In an effort to streamline the proctoring process, The University of North Carolina Online website has created The UNC Online Proctoring Network, a website “designed to enhance the academic integrity of online courses by providing students with an easily accessible pool of qualified proctors. These qualified proctors will be available for students who are taking online courses at any of the constituent universities of the University of North Carolina.”
The website serves as a gateway for UNC system students to find a local proctor (or nominate a proctor for approval). Faculty are responsible for logging into the system and providing the conditions of the proctoring location, such as the length of exam, if a computer is required, and the level of supervision that is required. It is important to note that some proctoring sites charge a fee. If you are interested in exploring this option further, please make sure to read the guidelines for becoming a proctor (linked directly in the “For Proctors” section) so that you will have a better idea of what is involved in the process.
