NOTE: For Fall 2021, eCore
courses contain at least one proctored experience or major project of significance. The proctored experience
or major project is required for successful completion of an eCore course. In courses requiring only one
proctored exam or one major project, failure to fulfill this requirement 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, the student may or may not pass the course as long as they take at least one exam,
depending on other grades. In other words, the zero received on the missed exam will lower the average grade
for the course significantly, perhaps below the passing mark.
Proctored experiences in eCore classes (i.e. a proctored midterm and/or a proctored final exam) work
differently than proctored experiences in traditional, on-campus classes because they require you to plan,
schedule and pay* for your proctoring appointments. Students should review the information on this site to
ensure that the necessary proctored experiences are completed successfully.
In order to measure learning outcomes in an objective, verifiable way, instructors will designate one or
two experiences to be completed in an approved proctored environment where you will be asked to present a
photo ID. Students are responsible for scheduling and completing their proctored experiences by the posted
deadline. This includes reviewing the course syllabus at the beginning of the semester to confirm the dates
of your proctored experiences and scheduling them well in advance. Students are also responsible for being
aware of the conditions and policies under which the proctored experience will be administered.
eCore Network Testing Centers(**Most
Popular**) - These testing centers are located at your home institution or other
participating USG institutions.
eCore Network Testing Centers Remote Proctoring - Some USG testing centers may
have limited remote proctoring opportunities. Through this modality students can schedule to take
an exam with a local USG testing center which will then remotely proctor the exam via remote
Non-Network Testing Centers - these are testing centers located at institutions
of higher education in Georgia that are not eCore network schools. They include other approved
colleges, universities, and technical colleges in the state.
High School Dual-enrollment - The high school proctors in this section
only proctor their own dual-enrolled students. Not all high schools are
Military/Specialized - These are specialized proctors that only proctor for a
specific subset of students (i.e. military members, employees of specific organizations, etc).
Out-of-State - These are pre-approved testing centers located outside the state
Home institution testing centers are strongly recommended for exam proctoring in eCore courses.
Most testing centers have appointments available during normal business hours but some testing
centers also offer weekend appointments.
