Yes, you’ll need a proctor to administer and supervise the quizzes and tests for your online course. If you will be working on your courses in the United States, you can either use a live proctor or Examity online proctoring. If you will be taking quizzes or tests while outside of the United States, you must use Examity online proctoring. There is no charge to use Examity, which is a remote test proctoring service that allows you to take quizzes and tests from home at any time, day or night.
If you choose to use a live proctor, you must get the proctor approved before you can begin preregistration. The proctor must be a member of the local church pastoral staff (pastor, associate pastor, youth pastor); pastor’s wife; deacon; church secretary; or a member of the administration, faculty, or secretarial staff of a Christian school. Relatives, peers, GA’s or other students enrolled in online courses are not allowed to be proctors. Your proctor should be available throughout the term to proctor your tests, and you will need to plan your testing times around your proctor’s schedule. Tests will be administered online using the proctor’s computer.
The Online-Learning Office will also provide testing times for on-campus and town students. If you select this option, you will receive an e-mail with available testing times after you are registered for your course.
