Not all courses will include tests. Alternatives to tests might include: papers, discussion groups, homework assignments, portfolios, and/or projects (click headers for more information).
Some courses require proctored tests to be administered by an institution near the student's location. 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 Center, located at 1914 W Arlington Blvd (Arlington Crossing), in Greenville, North Carolina, offers test proctoring services to students enrolled in distance education classes at East Carolina University, and other universities within the University of North Carolina system.
The UNC Online Proctoring Network has been designed to enhance the academic integrity of online courses by providing students with an easily accessible pool of qualified proctors. These qualified proctors will be available for students who are taking online courses at any of the constituent universities of the University of North Carolina. This network will help students to easily access proctors and find a facility to take their exam in a shorter, more effective period of time.
