UNC Online Proctoring Network for Faculty - Entering Exam Details

  1. 1. Entering Exam Details into UNC Online (For Online/Distance Education Courses) Participating UNC System Campuses ASU, ECU, ECSU, FSU, NCCU, UNCC, UNCG, UNCP, UNCW, WCU and WSSU
  2. 2. Wait, before you get started… • Did you post a proctoring statement and student scheduling instructions in your course information? • Did you include a statement regarding proctoring fees in your course information? • Did you explain to students that campus codes of academic integrity and conduct apply during proctored exam appointments? • Are you providing students with ample time to schedule and prepare for appointments?
  3. 3. Example Proctoring Statement Students must schedule proctored exam appointments via UNC Online (http://online.northcarolina.edu/). Appointments must be scheduled, at a minimum, two weeks prior to exam windows. To view detailed scheduling instructions visit http://www.slideshare.net/UNCOnline/unc-online-updated Campus codes of conduct and integrity apply during proctored exam appointments. To review these guidelines visit (link for your campus codes of conduct here) Students are responsible for fees related to proctored exams ; proctors’ fees are posted in UNC Online. Not all proctors charge a fee (these locations quickly reach capacity prior to the start of peak testing periods) Students must present a current/legible government issued photo ID prior to each appointment. Cell phones are not permitted in testing areas (leave cell phones at home or in a locked car). Exams for this course are online (not paper based). Therefore, students can schedule exam appointments with face- to-face proctors or the 'Take Exam via Webcam' option via UNC Online. Online proctors are available almost 24 hours a day/7 days a week. All appointments occur in real time with live proctors. To learn more about ‘Take Exam via Webcam’ visit http://www.slideshare.net/UNCOnline/unc-online-ta If there are no proctors in your area (and you cannot use ‘Take Exam via Webcam’) start the invite a proctor process as soon as possible. Visit http://online.northcarolina.edu/exams/invite.php to invite an individual to submit a UNC proctoring application on your behalf. Note the guidelines for who can and cannot serve as a UNC Proctor.
  4. 4. Wait, one more important note… Please enter the accurate duration it takes for students to complete the exam. Do not add extra time to the duration. This action will ensure students are not charged for time they do not use and proctors time/resources are maximized. Proctors are only obligated to honor the exam duration posted into UNC Online.
