Proctored Testing

Proctored testing is a common feature of online and some face-to-face courses. In addition to administering exams in our main campus facility, the Office of Distance Learning (ODL) coordinates proctored testing for instructors teaching online and distance classes.

On-Campus Testing

Please note that our main campus Testing Center is now closed due to safety concerns over the COVID-19 situation. We will remain closed until further notice. At this time, we are not scheduling any exams in the Testing Center, and we encourage instructors to explore alternate assessment strategies and online proctoring (see information on online proctoring below).

Testing with an Online Proctoring Service


Online proctoring provides an alternative to testing in a proctored testing facility. Honorlock's online proctoring service provides a way of assessing students while they are taking courses remotely. The service is  offered at no cost to students. Exam sessions are recorded and flagged for review when potential academic misconduct is detected.

  • Your students will take their exam in Canvas on their own computer via the internet. 
  • Honorlock will verify your students' identity, record their web activity, and provide built-in features like search and destroy, mobile device prevention, and a browser guard to prevent cheating.
  • Instructors will review exam recordings and check for activity flags that may indicate academic misconduct.

Off-Campus Testing at an Approved Facility

Please note that many testing facilities have closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and students are likely to be unable to secure testing with an approved facility at this time. We recommend the use of alternate assessment strategies and Honorlock in place of off-campus testing facilities.
