About Proctored Quizzes

Throughout your program of study, assessments from select courses will be proctored. Proctored assessments are required and serve as an additional identity verification process to ensure academic integrity and meet accreditation requirements. Students are required to identify themselves with a valid photo ID.

Proctored exam information and requirement rules are provided in each course where a proctored assessment is required. Taking proctored exams is mandatory, without exception, and is not subject to appeal. Failure to successfully complete the proctored exam will result in administrative action, per the Academic Integrity Policy.

  1. Before you begin your quiz, be sure to have:
    • A photo ID that includes your first and last name (driver’s license, passport, school ID, etc.).
    • A desktop or laptop computer with video recording capabilities.
