A proctored exam is an exam that is overseen by an impartial individual, called a proctor, who monitors or supervises you while you are taking the exam. The proctor ensures the security and integrity of the exam process.
A proctored experience is required for successful completion of an eCore course. In courses requiring only one proctored exam, failure to take that exam will result in a failing grade for the course regardless of the average of other grades. In courses in which the instructor requires two proctored exams, you may or may not pass the course as long as you take at least one of them, depending on your other grades. In other words, the zero you receive on the missed exam will lower your average grade for the course significantly, perhaps below the passing mark.
