A proctor is someone who oversees an exam for a professor who cannot be present to give an exam. USAO professors may use proctors for makeup tests or when special accommodations are needed.
A proctor may be required for online examinations or for correspondence course exams.
There is no fee for proctoring a course that is taught at USAO or for a current/past USAO student. However, the USAO Assessment Office charges a $15.00 proctoring fee for courses other than USAO taught paid directly to the Business Office. The receipt is then provided to the Assessment Office prior to beginning the exam.
You need to contact the Assessment Office to make an appointment and request that your school provide the appropriate proctoring procedures which the Assessment Office will follow for the testing.
In order to serve the faculty and student body better, we now have proctor forms. If you need the Assessment Office to proctor an exam for you, simply complete a form and delivery it to us. It can be emailed, picked up, or dropped off at the office.
There are two forms. One is for a single student (whether for one test or several). The other is for a group of students.
We will keep a copy for our records. We will either scan and return the form to you when complete or have it available on request if needed.
