Test Proctoring

California Community colleges online Education Initiative

College of the Siskiyous supports California Community College online students by participating in the pilot Proctoring Network developed and coordinated by the Online Education Initiative (OEI). The Proctoring Network supports participating colleges online faculty and students by offering proctoring services at one of the 19 participating California Community College campuses within a reasonable distance to an online student. Students at participating colleges can take advantage of proctoring services equipped with reliable computer access and staffed by qualified college personnel, maintaining test security and respecting student privacy. Best of all – the service is FREE—of both distraction and cost!

If your online class requires face-to-face proctored exams and you do not live near campus, a proctored exam may be an option for you. Speak with your instructor to learn more about proctored exams at College of the Siskiyous.
