Proctored Exams for CMU Courses

What is a proctor or a proctored exam?

A proctor is an approved person who administers an exam to a CMU student and agrees to fulfill the required proctor responsibilities. The proctor will verify a student’s identity by checking a photo ID and will ensure academic integrity guidelines during exams are followed (e.g., no cell phones, notes, textbooks, outside assistance, etc.). Proctored exams may be either online or paper/pencil, as determined by your instructor. The proctor must provide computers for all online exams. Wireless internet is not recommended due to instability concerns. Students are not permitted to use their own computers.  

It is the student’s responsibility to identify and designate an acceptable proctor. All proctors must first be designated by the student and approved through the Certified Testing Center.
