Exam Proctoring


Taking Exams For NetMath™ Courses

All NetMath courses require a proctor to supervise exams. All exams are currently paper-based and do not use any electronic equipment, including computers and calculators. Different courses have different numbers of exams: all courses have a final exam; some courses have two or more midterm exams. Please refer to the course page for the number and duration of exams.

Students may take exams on the University of Illinois campus or off-campus with an approved proctor.

Be Advised:

  • If you are unable to make it to your exam, you can cancel your appointment by clicking on the link on your confirmation email at least 24 business hours (M-F) in advance of your scheduled exam time. There will be a $20 penalty fee to reschedule an exam if you fail to show for an exam without advanced notice. An additional $20 is added on for each cancellation or late notice to reschedule.
  • You can now pay your penalty fee online. For students that owe a fee, you can submit your payment online at http://go.illinois.edu/NetMathProctorFee
  • Please show up to your exam on time. Due to time and space constraints, we are unable to extend testing if you are running late.

Taking Exams with a Proctor Off-Campus

PLEASE NOTE: We do not allow remote proctoring services like ProctorU. You must have an in-person proctor who can receive, retain and administer paper exams according to NetMath guidelines.


Proctor Eligibility Requirements

A proctor must meet one of the following criteria and cannot be a relative of the student:

  • Principal or Superintendent of Educational Service Region, School, or District
  • Dean, Academic Department Head, Extension or Correspondence Administrator, Registrar, or Official Testing Service of an Accredited University or College
  • Education Officer (Armed Services Personnel Only)
  • Full-Time High School or College Instructor
  • Librarian at your local community library
  1. Proctors are approved by NetMath to ensure they meet our testing standards. NetMath may withdraw approval at their discretion.
  2. Your proctor must be approved by the second week of your course.
  3. For faster exam grading turnaround, proctors are encouraged to scan and email completed exams to NetMath in addition to mailing the paper exam (hard copy of the completed exam) back.
  4. * If you are taking a summer semester NetMath course, or if you are on an expedited timeline to complete your course, please make sure your proctor has the facilities to scan and email your completed exams to us.

Be sure to ask your proctor if compensation is required for test proctoring. Any compensation to the proctor is strictly between the student and the proctor. Students should discuss this with their proctor(s) before using their services.

Students should also verify that their proctor will be able to receive mail at the proctor’s institutional address. Exam packets will not be mailed to home addresses.


Proctor Approval

Students must submit the NetMath Proctorship Form to have their proctor approved. For the form to be submitted properly, students need to activate their @illinois.edu email address. Be sure to contact your intended proctor directly before submitting the proctorship form. Proctor approval is contingent upon verification of the information provided in the form.

  • A Student NetID is required to access the proctorship form.
  • First-time Students: select the Urbana-Champaign campus in order for your proctorship form to be properly submitted.
  • Be sure to contact your intended proctor directly before submitting the proctorship form.
  • A Proctor email address is required on the NetMath Proctorship Form. Student should ensure that this is a verifiable institutional email address that is current and checked by the proctor regularly.

Note: Exams will be sent to your proctor from the NetMath office. Do not schedule any exams until you confirm that your proctor has received the exams.


Multiple Proctors

Students who require multiple proctors for their exams should fill out a NetMath Proctorship Form for each proctor they require. Students may indicate on the form which exam(s) should be sent to each proctor. Please check how many exams there are in each class.


Proctor Guidelines

The Proctor Guidelines detail the procedures a proctor must follow when administering NetMath tests.


Proctoring Locations

Some proctoring locations can be found here: National College Testing Association. The NCTA search is a resource and not a requirement. You will need to verify that the testing location is able to proctor exams.
