Before you take a proctored exam, make sure you know and understand the following computer and behavior requirements.
Note: You are responsible for making sure that the proctoring software works with your system before you take a proctored exam. Please familiarize yourself with the quiz function in ELC. You will be proctored by a member of the UTS staff using one of two technologies: Zoom or Proctor360. The technology and behavior requirements are the same. For Proctor360, you will receive a registration email the day before your exam that will walk you through a technology check. On the day of the exam, the program will do a room sweep. If Zoom is used for your exam, the proctor will walk you through the same steps.
1. Before you begin the exam, the proctor will direct you through a webcam scan of the room where you will take the exam.
2. No other person is allowed to be present in the room nor enter the room while you are taking the proctored exam. Please communicate with family and roommates that you cannot be interrupted during your examination period. You must take your exam in a room with a closed door.
3. The lighting in the room must be bright enough to be considered “daylight” quality. Overhead lighting is preferred. If overhead lighting is not available, the source of light must not be behind you.
4. You must sit at a desk or table free from any paper, electronics, or other items not approved as testing materials. You may not test sitting on the floor or in bed.
