  1. What is involved in being a proctor for NCSU Engineering Online students?

Proctoring an exam is a multi-step process. A proctor:
  1. Receives the exam via e-mail
  2. Administers the exam to the student
  3. Gathers the completed exam and submits it to the Engineering Online office via fax or as a scanned attachment to an e-mail
  4. Mails the original of the completed exam to the exam coordinator once the EOL office confirms receipt of the electronic version of the exam

  1. How does a proctor administer an exam?

To properly administer an exam or quiz, proctors should:
  1. Ensure that the student does not have access to the examination before or after the agreed testing period
  2. Verify the studentís identity through a photo ID
  3. Ensure the student does not have any unauthorized materials while taking the test
  4. Supervise the student while taking the exam
  5. Stop the student from working on his or her test paper when the allotted time period ends
  6. Collect the exam and send a faxed or scanned copy to the Engineering Online office
Once submitted electronically, proctors should hold the studentís original exam paper until the EOL office confirms receipt of the electronic version of the exam. Once receipt has been confirmed, proctors must then mail the entire test paper and any student work to the Engineering Online office.
