Sometimes online classes require students to take what’s called a “proctored exam.” A proctored exam means that you must come to a physical location and take the test while being supervised by a proctor, someone who works with your online instructor and ensures that the right person takes the exam following the rules set by the instructor. Different instructors have different rules. You can expect that there will be a time limit to complete the exam. You may or may not have access to paper, books, and calculators. You will not be able to use your cellphone during the exam. Children, friends, and family will not be allowed in the proctoring area with you. You will need to bring a valid photo ID.
You must make an appointment to have a proctored exam. It’s a good idea to make the appointment as soon as you know you will need one, or at least one week prior to the exam. Seats fill up fast for finals week, so make your appointment early.
To make an appointment for a proctored exam, register online at: https://ashland-kctcs.libcal.com/calendar/proctor
When you make your appointment, please include:
- course number/name
- instructor name/college
You may need to notify your instructor that the exam has been scheduled at ACTC and send them our contact information. If you need to change or cancel your appointment, you need to contact us ASAP.
Just because your class is being offered by ACTC doesn’t mean that you are required to take your proctored exam at ACTC. You may schedule your exam at whichever KCTCS campus is most convenient for you. Click here for information about other KCTCS proctoring sites.
