If you are enrolled in a course that requires a proctored test, an approved proctor must administer your tests and exams (not a parent, guardian or friend). Students enrolled in online courses have several options for exam proctoring: online, on campus or off campus.
Testing deadlines are provided in each course's syllabus or schedule, and it is the student’s responsibility to schedule tests in accordance with the established deadlines. Some proctoring options must be scheduled 3-4 days (or more) before the exam.
In the course, you will see a link to "Smart Proctoring." Do NOT use this link. Follow the below instructions to set up a free proctor for your tests.
You may ask for approval from your high school counselor, principal, or approved teacher to proctor your test. On a case-by-case basis, the Bama By Distance Testing Services Office may approve a high school teacher (ACCESS teacher and/or designated teacher).
For proctor form approval, visit dltesting.ua.edu.
If a student changes proctors, please submit a new proctor request form to the Bama By Distance Testing Services office for approval. Just a reminder, all test information will continue to your original proctor, unless you notify Bama By Distance Testing Services at 800-467-0227 of a change in proctor.
If you have specific questions about proctor selection, please contact Bama By Distance Testing Services at 800-467-0227 or email@example.com.
