COVID-19 Related Changes to Proctored Exam Process


In-person testing services at EFSC Assessment Centers described below this box have been suspended for the remainder of the Spring Term due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. Adjustments have also been made to the process for accessing an online proctored exam, so students should check with their instructors. If a proctored exam is required, EFSC has made an arrangement with the third-party service ProctorU to offer proctored testing for face-to-face courses that moved online. If the exam is built within Canvas, the ProctorU Review Plus flat fee is $8 (for a limit of up to two hours each test). However, exams that are built in third-party platforms, such as Pearson’s MyLab or MyMathLab, are at regular ProctorU Live Plus hourly rates: on average $25.

EFSC Proctored Exam Information

A proctored exam is a test administered by an authorized individual who supervises the student while he or she is taking the test. The authorized individual is known as a proctor. The proctor’s function is to ensure the integrity and security of the exam in a secure testing environment. eLearning courses may have proctored exam requirements as determined by the instructor. Please review the course syllabus for details.

EFSC provides a secure testing environment at no charge for proctored tests related to EFSC courses and also provides proctored exam services as space is available for courses taken at outside institutions other than EFSC. However, there may be a fee for these external institution proctored exams based on whether you are also a currently enrolled EFSC student or not.

EFSC Courses: Testing Information & Scheduling

EFSC students enrolled in online courses are required to take their proctored exams either on campus or at an instructor/college approved proctoring site, including the third-party online option ProctorU if allowed by their EFSC instructor. Students electing to take a proctored exam on campus must schedule testing appointments using the Student Proctored Testing Scheduler. Any changes to testing appointments should also be done in the Scheduler.

Students living outside Brevard County must notify their instructor of their intentions to use off-campus proctoring services to satisfy proctored exam requirements for their classes. Students must submit the Lab Requests & Registration form in a timely manner to facilitate communication between the instructor and the off-campus proctor. Students may choose one of the following options for taking proctored exams (additional costs may apply):

ProctorU is a third party proctoring service that allows you to take proctored exams online from anywhere using a webcam and a high speed Internet connection. Testing with ProctorU has a testing fee of $25 per two-hour exam. It is the student’s responsibility to confirm that the off-campus proctoring request process is complete and that their proctor has received their test information. They should not report to take their exam until they have this confirmation. Additionally, students are to submit their Lab Requests and Registration form at least 2 weeks prior to the start date of their exam.

Instructions for EFSC students scheduling a proctored exam

Online Learning students may take their proctored exams at no cost at one of the EFSC campus locations listed above on this page. Students taking their proctored exams at one of the campus locations must schedule all testing appointments online through the Student Proctored Testing Scheduler. The system will prompt you to login with your myEFSC Login or can be reached through the Student Applications drop-down menu when logged in to myEFSC. All initial appointments and changes to reschedule testing appointments should be done in the Scheduler.

Tests can only be scheduled after the class begins and the instructor has identified dates for the tests. Once the exam information is available, students are advised to make testing appointments in the Scheduler as early as possible. Students should select a campus testing location based on their needs and the testing allowances permitted by the instructor.

After the testing appointment is made in the Scheduler, please review the following information for a better testing experience:

  • Communicate any special accommodations to your instructor before your testing appointment
  • Arrive at your testing appointment about 5 minutes early
  • Bring photograph identification with you. You will not be permitted to take your exam without an ID card such as military ID, driver license or EFSC student ID. No exceptions.
  • Check the classroom to be aware of instructor’s testing allowances for use of notes, textbook, calculator or any other testing aids before your testing appointment
  • Bring only approved testing aids with you to the testing appointment. All other personal items such as purse/handbag, cell phone, food, drink, keys, hat, watch, sunglasses, and/or book bag must be placed into a locker and retrieved upon leaving the testing room. Only the locker key and student ID are allowed in the testing lab.
  • Know your EFSC student ID number and Canvas logon information; you will need this information to access your Online Learning exam
