USU Regional Campuses & Distance Education is committed to the highest standard of academic integrity. The online materials & testing system has been designed to assist students in finding certified proctors and testing locations and securely distributing course material. This service is for all USU Distance Education students.
Online courses taught through Utah State University may require a proctored exam or written assignments as designated by the instructor. This means that a student is monitored by an approved individual with which the student does not have a relationship with in any manner (co-worker, colleague, family, friend, etc.)
Use the new online proctor search to select certified proctors in your area. If you can't find a proctor in your area, Sign-in and select Invite a Proctor to request a proctor for approval (who can be my proctor?) If your proctor is approved, you can continue to use this proctor throughout the semester; no further approval is required.
Some proctors may charge a fee for their services. Students are responsible for all fees incurred while taking exams.
If you have exams you want to be proctored, you can post the exam information here. This information will be stored securely and made available to certified proctors when students take the exams. Please inform students about the necessity of needing a proctor within the first week of classes. This could be done by providing information on your syllabus and a brief orientation to the system. Furthermore, you can dictate any conditions of the proctoring location, which might include: the length of exam, if a computer is required, or if the need for close and constant supervision is required. This communication is imperative to ensure students have ample time to make the necessary arrangements.
You can also use this site to post materials to be shared with our regional sites (handouts, homework, etc.) Facilitators at each site will access this material and distribute to your students as needed.
Proctors are an essential component of our Distance Education System. We rely on you to serve our students by providing a safe and secure location for our students to take their exams. If you would like to become a part of the Utah State University Proctoring Network or if you have been invited by a student to proctor an exam, please make sure you read the guidelines describing the qualifications needed in order to be approved as a proctor. Once you have done this, you can go to Become a Proctor and apply.
Proctor are responsible for upholding the standards and guidelines, reading exam instructions to the student verbatim, monitoring the examinee, return materials accordingly and record & report any suspected cheating incidents and making sure that the exam is provided in the way it was intended by the instructor.
