Test Proctoring

Most distance courses include online quizzes or tests. But, some instructors may require that you take these assessments in the presence of a proctor. A proctor is a person that administers tests to student within the parameters established by the course instructor. When in doubt, contact your instructor. The center administers paper-and-pencil or online tests. Other types of testing can be accommodated with enough advance notice. Proctoring service is free to students taking WVC courses. The service is also available to non WVC students for a fee.  Along with Face to Face Proctor options, we support Recorded Online Proctor and Live online Proctor.
