In response to significant requests for the ability to have proctored testing in the Fall of 2020, a work group was formed to examine all possibilities and provide guidance around proctored testing. This work group issued guidelines and recommendations for the Fall of 2020. The purpose of this page is to update the guidance for the Spring semester 2021 based on feedback that we have received during the Fall of 2020.
It is not likely that we could accommodate all of the demand for all of the in-person proctored exams across the IUPUI campus. As such,the following guidelines/requirements are in place for Spring 2021:
- Only those courses offered in the in-person, hybrid traditional, distance other and online interactive formats will have access to schedule proctored exams in-person at IUPUI in Fall 2020. The distance other format has been added for Spring 2020. These four formats were selected because they include either required in-person meetings on campus or regular required meetings in a remote format (i.e. synchronous).
- Courses that meet the above requirement will be afforded the opportunity to schedule up to three in-person exams during Spring 2021.This is an increase of one test per course over Fall 2020. However, it must be noted that in increasing this limit we may reach capacity during busy times so scheduling will done on a first-come, first-serve basis.
- Exams will be limited to 75-minute time limits.
There are also several important caveats:
- Some students may require an accommodation due to health, quarantine, or illness (COVID or other illness that prevents their presence on campus as stated in the CRA). Even if a faculty member has an exam proctored on campus, accommodations will need to be made for an online evaluation/examination for students that cannot come to campus.
- It is important to note that these requirements only apply to courses where the needed additional classroom space is controlled by the campus (general inventory). Schools and departments that may have department spaces that can be used for testing using proper social distancing are not subject to these requirements; neither are classes that can safely accommodate all testing needs without requesting additional space.
