Students who enroll in online courses which require monitored (proctored) testing and who do not live in the physical service area of one of the colleges of the DCCCD must
gain prior approval for a proctor who will monitor course tests. Students living within the Dallas area do not need to submit this form; instead they should take their tests at a colleges' Testing Center as detailed in the course syllabus.
A proctor is an individual who agrees to receive your online tests, administer them to you in a suitable environment and return them to the Dallas Colleges Online. They also certify in writing to Dallas Colleges Online your completion of the test according to all of the specific directions provided. As the nomination form indicates, a proctor will identify the specific tests s/he will monitor. If you use more than one proctor, you will need approval of each one. Any proctor you nominate must be acting in the official capacity in one of the following positions:
You are responsible for identifying, nominating and making all of the arrangements for the proctoring of your course tests, including the payment of any fees for services or the return of test materials to Dallas Colleges Online (cost of fax, U.S. mail or UPS). If you are unable to find a suitable proctor, please
contact an online advisor for assistance immediately. Proctor arrangements must be completed within 10 days after the course begins.
The form will be forwarded to the instructor. Once the instructor approves the nomination, s/he will forward testing materials with specific administration instructions to the designated proctor. It is the proctor's responsibility to return the materials to the instructor for grading. It is the student's responsibility to cover the costs to return the materials.
