Proctored Exam Information
A proctored exam is a test administered by an authorized individual known as a proctor who supervises the student while he or she is taking the test. The proctor’s function is to ensure the integrity and security of the exam in a secure testing environment. Eastern Florida Online courses may have proctored exam requirements as determined by the instructor. Please review the course syllabus for details.
In-person academic proctored exams for EFSC classes at an EFSC Assessment Center are only available if an instructor arranges an exception based on accommodations for students with disabilities or if the instructor of an on-campus EFSC class arranges a make-up exam for an on-campus student. Review the "SAIL Students" tab below for more details on test scheduling for qualifying SAIL students. On-campus students will receive further instructions about the approval and scheduling process from the EFSC Assessment Center staff once their teacher arranges a proctored make-up exam. Students from outside institutions may schedule an in-person proctored exam for a fee on a space-available basis following the process in the "Non-EFSC Students" tab.
EFSC has licensed Honorlock, a third-party proctoring tool that instructors can connect to exams. For more information about this online tool, please refer to the "Honorlock" tab in the box below. EFSC offers limited access to select campus Computer Lab locations if an EFSC student needs to use a computer, with a camera and the other technical requirements to take an online proctored exam scheduled for an EFSC class. See the "Computer Access" tab below for more details for EFSC students only.
EFSC Assessment Centers offer in-person EFSC academic testing, including proctored exams, for students with SAIL accommodations approved through EFSC's Student Access for Approved Learning (SAIL) office.
Once an instructor's test request is approved, a student's exam will become available for scheduling in the EFSC RegisterBlast online system. Students should work closely with their instructor to determine the Campus where they wish to take the exam, and then use the RegisterBlast scheduling link for that Campus. Students must register, reschedule, or cancel their appointments more than 48 hours in advance to ensure that a Testing and Assessment services proctor can be available. If it is less than two days before the appointment, only an instructor can contact the department about making changes to a course's scheduled appointment. Students will be supplied detailed information via email about the in-person testing process and what items are allowed in the test location.

For EFSC students who lack the equipment needed to take an online proctored exam:
While online proctored exams taken on an EFSC student's own device are available and most convenient, limited on-campus access for an EFSC student to take an online proctored exam is available. Students can use computers set up for secure proctoring in the Campus Computer Lab locations listed below. In most cases, access at the days and times listed is on a first-come, first-serve basis so please plan accordingly when relying on an on-campus computer for an online proctored exam. Only the Melbourne location requires an appointment for access to the lab.

Honorlock proctoring tool
EFSC has licensed Honorlock as an option for local EFSC students and out-of-area EFSC students to take proctored exams. Honorlock is a third-party proctoring tool that instructors can connect to exams. Students need to use the Google Chrome browser and install the Honorlock extension before being able to take a test connected to the service. Students will need a webcam. This service is not available on mobile devices.

Click the chat icon on the Honorlock page in a course to find 24/7 support. You can also visit the Honorlock Support website to find additional help resources. Honorlock provides a searchable knowledge base with access to answers for most common issues.
Anyone who needs to take a non-EFSC proctored exam can schedule the test on a space-available basis at the Cocoa, Melbourne or Palm Bay Assessment Centers.
There is a $35 per sitting EFSC proctoring fee paid during the registration process, plus a small service fee charged by the online registration system.
Visit the External Testing Services information page for more details, including how to verify your institution will approve an EFSC Assessment Center as the proctored location for your exam and how to schedule it.
EFSC students living outside Brevard County who want to arrange an in-person proctor near their location must submit the Instructor Test Requests & Registration form, accessed through the myEFSC Student Services Portal in the Student Applications area, to notify and gain instructor approval to use another college/university testing center, or public library proctoring services.
More details about outside, in-person proctoring services
We recommend that you locate a proctor at a university, college or public library. Proctors should have a business title, business e-mail address and a professional contact number. No personal e-mail address will be accepted. Students are responsible for any fees charged to them by outside proctors.
• Log in to myEFSC and complete the "Instructor Test Requests & Registration" form in the EFSC Student
Applications area of the portal at least 14 days before your exam.
• Send an email to your instructor to confirm receipt of your Test Requests & Registration form.
• The instructor will approve or disapprove the proctor.
• An email will be sent to your EFSC Titan email account to notify you of proctor approval or disapproval. Check your EFSC Titan email account in 3 to 5 days for a notification email regarding your request.
• If an instructor approves a proctor, the proctor will receive an e-mail so that the proctor can acknowledge and agree to the terms and regulations for proctoring exams. You should confirm with the proctor at least 24 hours before going to your testing appointment that the instructor’s information has been received. If the testing information has not been received by the proctor, contact the instructor via email for assistance.
• If an instructor disapproves a proctor, you must discuss the disapproval with the instructor and submit another proctor request.
Students should submit the Test Requests & Registration form in a timely manner to facilitate processing of requests by instructors and outside EFSC proctoring services.
