Find answers to your questions about McKissock.

Does my proctor have to sign/verify documentation after completing the exam?

Proctors must be in your presence during the entire duration of the exam process.  The proctor will have to attest to the following to ensure and preserve the integrity of the exam taking process.

It is the responsibility of the proctor to ensure the integrity of the exam by attesting to each of the following statements:

  • The identity of the student was verified using photo identification to ensure that only the registered individual completes the exam.
  • The exam was completed by the registered student without use of any unauthorized materials. No outside materials are permitted. The student may bring a calculator and a pen or pencil. All electronic devices should be turned off.
  • The only web browser open during the exam was exclusively pointed at McKissock Exam Engine. Tabbed browsing, Internet searches, blogs, instant messaging, etc. are prohibited.
  • The proctor personally observed the student throughout the duration of the exam without providing assistance in interpreting or completing the exam.
  • The proctor will verify that only the allotted amount of time is spent completing the exam. The specific time limit for exams varies per course and will be shown to the Proctor at the top of each exam.
  • The proctored location provided an environment conducive to test-taking and remained free of disruptions.
  • The proctor maintained the security of the exam log-in and password.

These are known as the proctor roles and responsibilities.  These are given at the proctor registration screen and the proctor will have to verify compliance at the end of either an E-proctored (online) or paper exam.
