eCore courses contain at
least one proctored assessment experience or one major project of significance that includes a recorded
video presentation for additional verification of student identity. Laboratory science courses and most math
courses include one or more proctored assessment experiences. Completion of the proctored assessment
experience or major project is required. In courses requiring only one proctored assessment experience 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 eCore courses requiring two proctored assessment experiences,
failure to complete at least one proctored assessment experience will result in a failing grade for the
course regardless of the average of other grades.
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.
