How UNC Online Reports Suspected Academic Integrity or Conduct Incidents
In-Person Proctoring Locations: If cheating or conduct issues are suspected, the proctor will submit a report in UNC Online, when they finalize the appointment. Instructors will be notified about this report via email.
WebCam Proctor (Examity): All exam appointments are audited twice (once during and immediately following the appointment and another 24-48 hours after the exam appointment). If cheating or conduct issues are suspected instructors will receive a report from UNC Online. Instructors will be notified about this report via email.
After the audit is complete and if there is no flag for suspected cheating or conduct issue, UNC Online does not access the exam appointment video.
Because exam appointment videos are subject to the FERPA and therefore have to remain secure, they are deleted by the vendor (Examity) 30 days after the exam appointment. Within the 30 days, if the student is suspected of cheating or suspected of a potential conduct issue, then a report must be created in the Maxient system of the institution of enrollment.
To ensure security as required by FERPA, videos will only be accessed and uploaded through the university's Maxient system.
Please Be Aware: The academic integrity and conduct policies follow the home institution of the student. UNC Online (UNCO) does not have separate academic integrity and conduct policies. However, under the authority of the MoU, signed by all the UNC System Provosts, UNCO may limit or suspend access to UNCO proctoring services to any student who causes a substantial disruption, or who poses a threat to the safety of others in the proctoring community while participating in UNCO proctoring. UNCO shall report any such limitation or suspension to the student’s home institution.
