Course syllabi may individually prescribe circumstances in which examinations or other assessments must be proctored. However, the institution reserves the right to require any individual student to attempt examinations or assessments in a proctored environment. The Teaching Team, at its sole discretion, may require proctoring for a student without regard to whether the procedure is stipulated in the course syllabus, or required of other students.
Proctoring, including the requirement that an assessment be re-attempted, may be required by the Teaching Team if they perceive that any academic inconsistency is evident. Academic inconsistency may include, but is not limited to, discrepancies between the results of various assessments, limited course engagement, erratic behavior, odd timing of attempts, odd duration of the assessment, technical anomalies, any reported inconsistency on a proctored assignment by third-party proctoring entities, etc.
Proctoring may be accomplished in four ways:
1) Third-Party Remote Proctoring: Students may schedule a third-party remote proctoring session with MonitorEDU.com or other provider if pre-approved by the institution. (PREFERRED METHOD)
4) Third-Party In Person Proctoring: Students may work with a public library that officially provides proctoring services.
1) Axon In-Person Proctoring: Students may schedule a time to visit the institution’s home office for a proctoring session. (Rarely approved)
2) Axon Remote Proctoring: Students may schedule an Axon Remote (online) proctoring session. (Rarely Approved)
The student must pay for any and all third-party proctoring services. Remote proctoring sessions are offered by MonitorEDU.com 24×7, and students do not have to schedule the sessions in advance with MonitorEDU. The student may schedule proctoring sessions at https://axonedu.as.me/. However, the student should contact firstname.lastname@example.org in advance of their testing date to ensure that a testing-code has been provided to the proctor before it is needed.
Any third-party in-person proctoring must be approved in advance by the institution and any fees associated with the proctoring must be paid by the student directly to the proctoring organization. Students should contact email@example.com to work out the details, but it is the student’s responsibility to contact the proctoring organization to begin the process.
