Test Proctoring Policy

The Test Proctoring Policy and Procedures were developed to ensure the security and integrity of distance education student testing. Lanier Technical College will implement test proctoring in phases.

Phase 1: Beginning Winter Quarter 2011 (201103), all online math courses are required to have the final examination proctored. Other courses may require test proctoring at the discretion of the instructor or dean.

Phase 2: Effective Fall Semester, 2011 (201212) the following courses when taught online are required to have the final examination proctored. Note that hybrid courses will continue to be treated as traditional courses for testing purposes.

  • Allied Health Science (Medical Terminology & Anatomy and Physiology)
  • Biology (Anatomy and Physiology)
  • Chemistry
  • Economics
  • English
  • History
  • Humanities
  • Mathematics
  • Physics
  • Psychology
  • Sociology
  • Political Science

Exception: The requisite on-campus presentation assignment for ENGL 2130 satisfies the proctor requirement; hence, a proctored final exam is not mandatory.

Proctoring Options

Students are responsible for scheduling proctored events as outlined within the course syllabus, course calendar, instructor emails, course announcements, and/or other communication means within the course. The following options are available to students at the discretion of the instructor.

  1. Complete the proctored event at the time scheduled by the instructor and posted on the syllabus.
  2. Arrange an appointment with an instructor-approved proctor. Approved proctors include persons who are not related to the student:
    1. A faculty member or administrator of an regionally-accredited university or college
    2. A school superintendent, principal, or counselor
    3. A librarian
    4. A commissioned officer whose rank is higher than the student's own (for students in the military only)
  3. Have the event proctored by another Technical College. Click here for contact information for other Technical Colleges.
  4. If the instructor allows, the student may schedule the exam through ProctorU during the time posted on the syllabus. This will be at the student’s expense based on the time limit of the exam. Learn how to get started with Proctor U.
