Proctoring Overview & Student Responsibilities

Quiz written on chalkboardSome TN eCampus courses require proctoring for mid-term and/or final exams. Test and exam dates are set for each course at the beginning of the semester and are included in the course calendar.

Students are responsible for scheduling proctoring arrangements well in advance of the exam, as proctoring appointment times fill quickly. If a webcam and/or microphone are needed to use the virtual proctor, contact TN eCampus.

Proctoring Overview

Options for testing include:

 

  • Approved testing center
  • Virtual proctor
  • Proctor at an alternative testing site

An approved testing center or virtual proctor are the preferred methods. Professors must be given ample time to make preparations for each proctoring option used by students. TN eCampus provides virtual proctoring as an option for learners who have difficulty locating a suitable time or physical testing site.

 

Because of social distancing, many on-ground testing centers cannot accommodate students for in-person testing at this time. TN eCampus strongly encourages the use of virtual proctoring, when proctoring is required. Currently, all TN eCampus proctoring is virtual.

 

TN eCampus faculty are aware of the virtual proctoring resources available to their class. If you have questions about scheduling a virtual proctoring appointment or testing procedures in general, consult with your instructor.

 


Virtual Proctoring  

In addition to on-campus and on-ground proctor options provided by local institutions, TN eCampus provides online proctoring solutions which preserve test/exam integrity. Available at no charge to all students enrolled in TN eCampus courses, virtual proctoring gives students flexibility in exam location through a live proctor connection via a webcam and computer.

Academic Honesty

All TN eCampus courses are expected to promote high standards for honesty and integrity. Academic honesty conduct violations include, but are not limited to:

  • An attempt by one or more students to use unauthorized information in the taking of an exam, to submit as one's own work, themes, reports, drawings, laboratory notes, or computer programs. 
  • Products prepared by another person or to knowingly assist another student in obtaining or using unauthorized materials
  • Plagiarism, cheating and other forms of academic dishonesty are prohibited
  • Academic Self-Plagiarism, also known as "double-dipping" occurs when a student submits a whole paper or a substantial portion of a paper to fulfill a course requirement, even though that paper has been submitted earlier to satisfy the requirements for another course taught by a different professor without consent from both professors
  • Additionally, students guilty of academic misconduct, either directly or indirectly, are immediately responsible to their instructor and institution for possible disciplinary sanctions, failing grades or failing the course
