What equipment do you need to use ProctorU?

How do you take a test with ProctorU?

  1. Create a free ProctorU account.
  2. Fill out Sinclair's Proctor Agreement Form. (fill in all fields; for proctor information, put ProctorU)
  3. Test your equipment here.
  4. Schedule your test at least 72 hours before you want to take your test.
  5. Review the rules of the test (use of notes, websites, etc.) provided by your instructor. If you don't know, ASK! It's really important that you understand the rules of the test in order to avoid an incident report or honor code violation during the test.
  6. Know that the proctor will see you and the room you are in, the entire time you are taking the test. More tips about your testing room can be found here.
  7. Provide a government-issued ID at the beginning of the test and answer questions from a public database to establish your identity. Some international students do not have sufficient history for the public database authentication and, therefore, may need to provide two forms of government-issued ID.
  8. Use a reflective surface such as a mirror or CD to let the proctor see the edges of your laptop.
