What is a proctor?

Return to FAQ index

Proctors are professionals who offer a proctor service and agree to supervise examinations for Pacific Rim Early Childhood Institute. They have a responsibility to facilitate fairness and integrity during testing situations.

Students must first receive permission from an individual before designating him or her as their proctor. This permission is given when an Examination Request Form is signed and sent to the student's instructor.

Once a student has requested an exam and their proctor has been approved, the exam is sent to the proctor's place of business. Once the student has completed the exam, the proctor will e-mail electronic exams or scan and email paper exams back to the instructor.

Proctors may or may not charge a fee for their services. The fee can range from around $30-75 per exam.

Pacific Rim ECI also offers online exam proctoring using Proctorio technology. Online exams can be requested directly through a student's instructor. To be eligible for online exams, students must display outstanding academic honesty throughout the program and be able to observe all the exam conditions during the exam. Each online exam incurs a small fee of $25 to cover the costs of licensing this software.
