What is a Proctored Exam?
A proctored exam is one that is overseen by an impartial individual (called a proctor) who monitors or supervises a student while he or she is taking an exam. The proctor ensures the security and integrity of the exam process.
Below, you will find a number of tips to ensure you are provided the best possible environment to successfully complete your exam:
- Please be aware of a student's responsibilities for scheduling a proctored exam.
- Schedule an appointment at least one week in advance of the exam date.
- If you are not near Hopkinsville, you can schedule an exam at a different KCTCS college.
- It is the student's responsibility to contact the instructor to ensure that the test, password and all instructions are sent to the test proctor.
- Upon arriving at the proctor site, present a picture ID (such as a student ID or current driver's license) for identification; otherwise, you will not be permitted to take the exam.
- It is the student's responsibility to bring all materials necessary to complete the exam, provided they meet with the instructor's guidelines.
- Inform the Testing Center in advance of any changes that might affect your scheduled testing time and date.
- There are no costs associated with proctored exams for HCC/KCTCS courses; there is a $25.00 fee associated with proctoring exams for other colleges and universities.
