What is a proctored exam?

A proctored exam is one that is overseen by an impartial individual (called a proctor) who monitors or supervises a student while he or she is taking an exam. The proctor ensures the security and integrity of the exam process.


   Who is an acceptable proctor?

Students unable to take their exams at WIU's Macomb or Quad Cities campuses should arrange for an acceptable proctor to conduct the examination and are responsible for fees assessed and postage to return the exam. The following are acceptable proctors:

  • Testing center personnel at community colleges and universities
  • School superintendents and high school principals and counselors
  • Education officers of military personnel
  • A Library that provides proctoring services
