I want to allow off-campus proctored exams.  Where do I begin?

If your course requires a remote proctor, instructors should follow these steps in order:

  • Add/register the course to the online proctoring and testing system: dashboard.testcenter.iastate.edu
  • Tell students that they must fill out a new proctor application: https://dashboard.testcenter.iastate.edu/request
  • Add the following language to your course’s syllabus
    • If you are a remote student, you are required to have a proctor to take your exams. Your approved proctor will receive a notification via e-mail when your exam is ready to be downloaded. Instructions on taking and returning the exam will be given to your proctor in the e-mail message. 
    • You do NOT need to submit more than one application for the same course. Only one remote proctor application per course, per semester is required. If your approved proctor needs a substitute or needs to make any other changes, have them contact testcenterhelp@iastate.edu
