What is Exam Proctoring?

GCC Testing Services administers online and paper-pencil exams for current GCC students at the request of a faculty member. Makeup exam requests and materials for a small group of students or a single student may be submitted by instructors. Instructors of hybrid or online classes may use Testing Services to administer exams for an entire class, small group, or individual students.

A proctored exam is an in-person exam that is administered by a proctor. A proctor is a person who will supervise you while you are taking your exam to ensure academic integrity.

General Information

We proctor both paper and pencil exams and computerized tests.

It is helpful but not required to know your class name (i.e. SOC 101), section number, instructor name, and test name. This allows us to expedite the check in process.

Students must allow enough time to take a test. The length of testing time varies by instructor. Students will be allowed to start testing as long as the exam is started one hour prior to closing. All tests must be completed ten minutes before closing. This means students may forfeit testing time allowed by an instructor if they start the exam before the cut-off time and after the deadline for a specific exam.

Picture ID

Current valid photo ID is required.

Testing Environment

The secure testing rooms consist of computerized testing stations or paper/pencil testing stations. Students are under video surveillance the entire time.
