Proctors are those who schedule/approve/reschedule/cancel student exam appointments, check I.D.s, follow exam instructions, keep exam passwords secure and monitor students while they take an exam to ensure exam is taken according to instructor’s exam instructions and university academic integrity and conduct policies. Proctor also finalizes each student exam appointment to indicate the exam appointment has been closed.
Instructors select if their exams require close and constant supervision when they create their exam in UNC Online. If they require close and constant supervision then UNC Online will filter proctors and only allow student to select those that can provide close and constant supervision. NOTE: Over 60% of UNC Online approved proctors provide close and constant supervision.
As a matter of policy, UNC Online does not allow libraries to offer close and constant supervision. This policy is in place because a library’s main responsibility is to its patrons. Therefore, library staff are not able to absolutely monitor a student’s exam from beginning to end.
