Distance Education Testing

Some online courses may require one to five proctored (supervised) exams during the semester. Proctored exams may be accomplished in the Testing Center on the main campus, the Gonzales Center, or an approved off-campus testing site at the discretion of the course instructor. All final exams for online classes must be proctored. Each instructor determines the need for additional proctored exam or exams.

  • Is the exam computer or paper based?
  • Your course number (i.e. BIOL 2401.W2)
