Basic Tips for Taking Proctored Exams at SSC


 

Quick List for Making a Reservation in the Distance Education Proctoring Center for SSC STUDENTS ONLY

  1. Get the test date information from your SSC online instructor.

  2. Read the steps for making a reservation at http://www.sscok.edu/distanceeducation/reservations.htm

  3. Be sure to make your reservation one week before you want to take your exam. This allows the DEPC to ensure adequate staffing for times with full exam loads. If you need a special ADA accommodation, be sure to specifically request it when you reserve your time. Walk-ins are no longer accepted. You MUST schedule an appointment.

  4. Be sure you follow all the rules for checking in and taking an exam. These are listed at http://www.sscok.edu/distanceeducation/students.htm. Some of the more essential rules are:

    • Make an appointment in SignUp Genius (no walk-ins)

    • Bring your SSC student ID or Driver's License

    • Bring proof of your reservation (a print out of the SignUp Genius confirmation email that you write your class, instructor and exam name on).

    • Be aware of what materials your instructor will allow you to use during the exam

    • Be prepared to store all prohibited items in the unsecured cubbies outside of the testing area or leave them at home/in your vehicle

    • If you cannot make your scheduled exam, please cancel your reservation on SignUp Genius.

 


Non-DEPC Proctored Reservations – Pre-Approved Proctors

SSC students needing alternative proctoring outside of the DEPC must follow different guidelines. If they cannot drive to campus or find an available time at the DEPC, they can use an alternative proctor on a one-on-one basis.

  1. Any faculty or professional staff (counselors, librarians, and administrators at K-12 and colleges) can act as approved proctors as long as they do not have a personal relationship with the student taking the exam. Many SSC faculty and staff are also willing to proctor students.

  2. Contact the proctor and set up a time to take the exam that matches the availability dates your instructor has provided. The proctor should read the page on proctoring (http://www.sscok.edu/distanceeducation/proctors.htm) and be able to provide a suitable testing environment.

  3. Fill out the form requesting to take the exam off campus (http://www.sscok.edu/distanceeducation/forms/depc_offcampus_request.docx ). Send the signed form to the online instructor. You can get a FAX number from your instructor, deliver it by hand, or take a picture of the form and send it as an email attachment. Many Smartphone apps, like TinyScan, will convert pictures to PDF files and email them from the device.

  4. The instructor will send the proctor the exam instructions.

  5. Students must arrive at the scheduled time with the appropriate materials: SSC Student ID or DL and any handouts/materials the instructor has allowed them access to during the exam).

  6. The proctor is responsible for sending all non-electronic materials to the online instructor (some exams/assignments will be paper copies and some will require students log in to Cruiser and complete them electronically).

 


Non-DEPC Proctored Reservations – Proctors Needing Approval

  1. If SSC students need to use someone not on the list of pre-approved proctors, they need to follow these steps:

  2. Fill out the Proctor Approval form (http://www.sscok.edu/distanceeducation/forms/depc_proctor_application.docx) and send that the Coordinator of Distance Education at least 2 weeks before they wish to take the exam. Students must email a scanned copy to: m.schnell@sscok.edu with Proctor Approval Request in the subject line, or they can hand deliver a copy to Professor McBride’s office in Tanner Hall, #612

  3. Students will receive email notice if their proctor has been approved. They then need to fill out the request to take an exam off campus form (http://www.sscok.edu/distanceeducation/forms/depc_offcampus_request.docx) and send this to their online instructor.

  4. Students must arrive at the scheduled time with the appropriate materials: SSC Student ID or DL and any handouts/materials the instructor has allowed them access to during the exam).

  5. The proctor is responsible for sending all non-electronic materials to the online instructor (some exams/assignments will be paper copies and some will require students log in to Cruiser and complete them electronically).

 


Non-DEPC Proctored Reservations – ProctorU fee-based service

SSC offers students a way to take exams from their homes via ProctorU. Click the left sidebar ProctorU link for more information about scheduling an exam with ProctorU.

 


SSC Students Who Have Waited Too Late To Take Exams

  • SSC students who miss the availability time for taking exams must contact their instructors for alternative arrangements. The DEPC cannot extend exam times without instructor authorization.

  • Students who fail to schedule an appointment in the DEPC at least one week before their requested time must reschedule, find a proctor outside of the DEPC, or contact their instructor about make-up arrangements.
