Distance Education Exam Proctoring
If you are a student taking a distance education (online) class, chances are your instructor will require you to take a proctored exam. A proctor is someone who monitors students.
To locate and schedule a proctor, visit http://services.northcarolina.edu. Once there, you should login using your ECU Pirate ID. If your instructor is using the system to post exam information, you will see those classes listed. If your instructor is not using the system, but still expects you to find a proctor you can use the system to do that as well. All College of Business DE classes will be in the system.
If you cannot find an approved proctor in your area in the system, you can invite someone to proctor for you.
Who can be your proctor?
To become a proctor, the individual cannot be a relative or friend of the student taking the exam and must hold one of the following occupational titles:
- School superintendent, prinicipal, assistant principal, or other administrator
- Embassy education officer, military base/station education officer, fire chief or captain
- Local college testing center staff or administration
- Commercial testing center
- Full-time school or public librarian, or full-time tester
- Overseas (Military) Non Commissioned Officer in Charge or Officer in Charge
For each type above, the proctor must provide a professional e-mail account and physical work address to verigy her/his title. Graduate level UNC System students who hold one of the above titles may proctor only if they are part of a formal proctoring office run by an administrator and staffed (in part) by graduate assistants; they cannot proctor students in their degree program. As well, they must provide a verifiable professional e-mail account and physical work address.
