Proctor Nomination

Important Information for Proctor Candidates

You have been nominated to serve as a proctor for an examination that he or she will be taking shortly. This form explains the proctoring process and serves to verify that you agree to assist the student with this requirement.

If you are approved as the student’s proctor, you will receive an email containing online exam access instructions and the student’s online exam log in password. In the event the student is taking a written version of the exam, you will receive a mailed exam packet that contains the exam questions, a certificate of compliance with policies and procedures, and a self-addressed return envelope. The exam is a timed (3-hour), closed-book examination. Students cannot take the exam while accessing books, notes, internet sites, or reference aids of any kind.

You will need to contact the student to confirm the date, time, and location of the exam. Before you allow the student to begin the exam, you will need to make sure that three hours are available and confirm the student’s identity with a government-issued photo identification.

Before the exam begins, you should advise the student that no breaks are permitted during the exam.

If the student completes a paper exam, you must mail the certificate of compliance (signed by you and the student), the exam questions, and the answer sheets back to ACHS within 48 hours of the completion of the exam. The student should reimburse you for postage.
