Approved proctors can be used by a student who:
Resides outside of Ames or have paper-based exams AND is in a course registered with the ISU Test Center for remote proctoring AND has approval from their instructor.
Remote proctors administer exams by monitoring students while they take exams to ensure the student is following the rules of the exam. Proctors enter the exam password so the student can access the exam (in the case of Canvas-based exams). They are unbiased individuals who have no personal association or affiliation with the student(s) they proctor.
