Proctoring with DSP

DSP proctoring can only be requested by your instructor, and they will notify you about the time and location of your proctoring appointment.  DSP mainly proctors in Wheeler 1-8 and Moffitt 224.  Please arrive 10 minutes early, with your student ID, to your testing location so your proctor has sufficient time to check you in.  

After your proctor has checked you in they will confirm your testing information, and instruct you to turn off your cell phone and place it into your bag.  All of your belongings, except those needed for testing, will stay with the proctor.   You will be shown to your testing area, and may  request a 5, 10, or 15 minute  warning from the proctor.  You may begin your exam when your proctor instructs you to do so.  

You may go to the proctor to ask any questions about the exam.  The proctor will connect you to your professor, or a GSI  from your class, so you may ask them directly.  If you need to use the restroom or get a quick glass of water please inform your proctor.  

If you leave the test site for any other reason without a proctor, your exam will be sealed and you will not be allowed to finish.

 Once you are finished you may return the finished exam to your proctor.  Your proctor will confirm with you that you are finished and seal the exam in an envelope in front of you.  Once the exam is sealed you are finished, and can enjoy the rest of the day.

Contact Faculty

After receiving or requesting your Letters of Accommodation, confirm with your professor that they also received a copy and understand its contents. In general, DSP encourages you to let your faculty know your preferences for exam accommodation, i.e. if you prefer that they put in a request through DSP, or that you be proctored through the department.

Time Conflicts

If there is a time conflict between the time or date of your proctoring appointment and another exam, please email your professor or GSI and give them times and dates that work for you. This should occur early on in the semester or, ideally, prior to registering for classes.  If you receive extended time on exams, for example, be sure not to schedule courses iback-to-back.  Also, check the final exam schedule.  If you have extended time and have several final exams in a day, you may want to speak with your professors to discuss alternatives.
