UToledo Testing Services

Off-Site Proctoring

Please note: As part of our COVID protocols, we are not currently serving as a proctoring site for students outside of The University of Toledo. UToledo faculty and students should be aware that other institutions may not be available as proctor sites due to the pandemic.

Faculty Request for Off-site Proctored Testing Arrangements

Online instructors: please complete the Instructor Request for Off-site Proctored Exams no later than the second week of the semester (first week of summer sessions) for courses requiring proctored tests. Forms will also be required from students after you’ve submitted your form. All forms are to be emailed to TestCenter.MC@utoledo.edu.

Faculty Off-site Test Form

In-person proctoring is only to be used for major examinations in your online course (i.e. midterms and finals). For quizzes and other incremental assessments, please use the educational technology tools available to you through UToledo Online to conduct your course in an online format. LockDown Browser and live, virtual proctoring are among the options available to you.

This form grants permission to your online students who are more than 50 miles from the University to test off-site with a professional proctor approved by The University of Toledo Testing Services. For students able to test on campus, you should arrange your own proctored test date and location. The Main Campus Testing Center does not have the capacity to offer whole-class exams and is only to be used for make-up and disability accommodations for on-campus testers.

Please alert your online distant students that they need to inform you and complete the student request form as soon as possible, no later than the third week of the semester (first week of summer sessions).

**Please note: Students testing outside of the U.S. will use ProctorU and will require a computer-based test in Blackboard.

Ensuring Testing Integrity

The student will follow established testing guidelines and comply with The University of Toledo’s academic dishonesty policy. Testing Services has the authority to suggest alternate proctors/locations to assure testing integrity and adherence to standards and guidelines established by the National College Testing Association.
