e-Learning Services Testing Policy

Prior to proctored exam testing, students must read and understand the following policy:

  • Students may not access any other information except for their exam unless specifically identified and approved by the course instructor. e-Learning Services staff must have confirmation of any exceptions directly from the instructor prior to the beginning of the exam. This includes but is not limited to: email, messages, grades, classroom discussions, chat, computer/internet history settings or any other websites or programs. Once students are finished with an online exam they will immediately sign out of Blackboard. If students wish to review their grades, they must do so on a computer outside of the testing area.
  • Students are not allowed to have unauthorized objects in the testing area, as per e-Learning, authorized proctors, and/or instructors. Instructors will be notified of any unauthorized objects taken into the testing room. This includes but is not limited to: cell phones, electronic devices, books, notes, or certain types of clothing. Students may be asked to empty their pockets prior to entering the testing room and may not leave the testing room once the exam has begun.
  • Proctors have the right to inspect the computer and testing environment prior to and after completion of the exam. This includes but is not limited to: the testing computer, internet usage history, email messages, notes, cell phones and electronic devices. Instructors will be notified if any unauthorized behavior is observed during the exam.
  • Violation of any of the testing policies or provisions outlined here constitutes a violation of the Student Code of Conduct and, as such, may be subject to investigation and adjudication by the Vice President for Student Affairs.
