Exam Proctoring

Exams for online courses may need to be proctored. A proctor is someone who oversees an exam to ensure the identity of the student and the security of the exam. The primary location for NWCCD students to take a proctored exam is in a testing center. If you live some distance from the Sheridan or Gillette campuses, you may need to secure a proctor near you. Those typically approved by instructors to proctor exams include:

  • Elementary or secondary school superintendents, principals, teachers or guidance counselors
  • Professional employees of accredited post secondary colleges or universities
  • Professionals working for public or private libraries
  • Commissioned officers of the military (National Guard)
  • Clergy
  • Other responsible individuals who might be approved by the instructor on a case-by-case basis.

For Instructors

Please ensure online exams are set to “available” and any passwords to enter exams are communicated to the testing center staff.
