Proctoring

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 shared course administrator pool including school 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. 

Anyone wishing to use this 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.
