Proctoring Overview

Quiz written on chalkboard

Test and exam dates are set for each course at the beginning of the semester and should be included in the syllabus.

Students are responsible for scheduling proctoring arrangements well in advance of the exam as proctoring appointment times fill quickly.

Proctoring Options

Proctoring is available at campus-based test centers and other alternative sites throughout the state.

TN eCampus provides ProctorU as an option for learners who have difficulty locating a suitable time or physical testing site. Instructors must be notified of the student's proctoring preference. If students will be using ProctorU or alternative sites, students must allow time for instructors to upload testing materials.

Proctoring Resources

Numerous student resources (new window) are available to take the guesswork out of using ProctorU. 

Academic Honesty

All TN eCampus courses are expected to promote high standards for honesty and integrity. Academic honesty conduct violations include, but are not limited to:

  • An attempt by one or more students to use unauthorized information in the taking of an exam, to submit as one's own work, themes, reports, drawings, laboratory notes, or computer programs. 
  • Products prepared by another person or to knowingly assist another student in obtaining or using unauthorized materials
  • Plagiarism, cheating and other forms of academic dishonesty are prohibited
  • Academic Self-Plagiarism, also known as "double-dipping" occurs when a student submits a whole paper or a substantial portion of a paper to fulfill a course requirement, even though that paper has been submitted earlier to satisfy the requirements for another course taught by a different professor without consent from both professors
  • Additionally, students guilty of academic misconduct, either directly or indirectly, are immediately responsible to their instructor and institution for possible disciplinary sanctions, failing grades or failing the course
