Exams and Testing
eCore Midterm and Final ExamsThe University System of Georgia Board of Regents requires that each eCore course contain at least one proctored experience of significance.
Exams in eCore classes work differently than exams in traditional, on-campus classes, because they require you to plan, schedule and pay (testing fees may vary) for any and all appointments at a testing center. Students and faculty should read and use the information on this site to ensure that the necessary midterms and final exams are completed successfully.
In order to measure learning outcomes in an objective, verifiable way, instructors will require students to take one or two exams at an authorized testing center, where students will be asked to present a photo ID.
All eCore midterm and final exams are administered online via GoVIEW. Any potential proctored test site must have computers with internet connection and a GoVIEW supported browser. Students are responsible for scheduling and reporting their exams by the posted deadline. Students are responsible for looking at the course syllabus during the beginning of the semester well in advance of the midterm and/or final to confirm when exams are scheduled and to then decide where to take the exam. Students are also responsible for being aware of the conditions and policies under which the exam will be proctored and administered. Failure to take a proctored examination will result in failure for the course, regardless of average of other grades.
