Some professions require that your final exam be monitored. That monitoring is called proctoring. A proctor is an approved person that administers an exam and upholds the integrity the exam-taking process.
You are required to successfully pass a proctored exam for the following license and education types:
- To obtain an appraisal license or upgrade (Qualifying Education)
- All IL Online Courses for Home Inspection.
Ineligible proctors would be family, your supervisor, a co-worker, or someone with whom you intend to be employed.
Examples of people who could serve as a proctor would be librarians, teachers, police officers, community volunteers, religious leaders, or someone who works in the public service industry.
The important thing to remember about a proctor is to choose someone who does not have a vested interest in whether you pass the exam. If audited, you would not want your proctor choice to stand between you and your career.
Proctor duties include, but are not limited to:
- Check your photo ID before you login to take your exam
- Verify that you did not bring any materials into the exam or have any materials in your possession while taking the exam which includes your cell phone
- Verify that you did not leave the testing site during the exam
- Verify that you were not on your phone or accessing other websites or materials during the exam
- Verify that you did not talk with or have contact with anyone while taking your exam
- Collect any scratch paper or materials that you may have used to work math problems
