On-Campus Proctoring

Based on OHIO’s current spring semester strategy, OHIO Testing Services plans to resume modified operations on January 19, 2021 in Bromley Hall. 


On campus proctoring is provided by OHIO Testing Services for online courses that require in-person supervision of students while taking their high-stakes exams.

Temporary safety precautions: Athens campus Testing Services follows the Presidential Health Directives and OHIO’s interim policy 44.102 for community health requirements. In addition to the health directives outlined in the above two resources, the OHIO Testing Services will also implement the below measures to decrease density and comply with the above policy and Health Directives:

  • No walk-in testing is allowed, all student examinations will need to be scheduled at least 24-hours prior to the exam. Testing capacity is limited, please schedule your exam as soon as you are able to secure your exam time. 
  • Social distancing markers have been placed on the floor of the Testing Center. We expect students and staff to follow social distancing guidelines and use the social distancing markers to ensure proper distancing between themselves and other students and staff.
  • On premise waiting is allowed for a limited number of test takers, on a first come-first serve basis. 
  • Test taker processing may take longer than usual. All test takers are expected to come prepared for their exam (e.g. make sure you have a photo ID with you, or if an exam has a fee, it is expected that students have paid the free prior to arriving to the Testing Center).  

Eligibility

  • OHIO faculty and staff can request on-campus proctoring for high-stakes exams in their OHIO online course.
  • OHIO students may schedule an on-campus proctored exam as required for their OHIO online course.
