Online Exams - General Information

Online Exam Administration Guidelines

Document outlining protocol for any connectivity issues encountered during the administration of online exams. 


The Dean has authorized the department of Undergraduate Medical Education to identify up to 3 additional (i.e. outside of the exam-distributing course) proctors for exams as needed such that there can be one proctor for each room in the iTLC. In order to coordinate this effort and manage the exam, the course must supply at least one proctor familiar with the course and process, identified as the 'Chief Proctor'. This person could be a faculty or staff member who would instruct the students on basic procedure and to be available to answer process questions. 

The additional proctors will come from our Standardized Patient program, and new in the AY19-20, the proctor pool has been expanded to include librarians. Their purpose is to circulate around the space periodically, observing student behavior to identify any  who seem to be utilizing their laptops out of accordance with test procedures. IT has created some materials to help them become familiar with the look of BBL exams, and we are offering them basic instruction in their proctoring role.

Anyone wishing to use this SP proctor service should please contact the Office of Undergraduate Medical Education (508-856-2285) noting the course name, number of proctors requested, date and time required as well as the location of the exam and the chief course proctor’s name. Please allow one week’s notice whenever possible to facilitate scheduling.
