Proctors will be interviewed and selected on an ongoing basis as needed by the Director of Counseling/Disability Services. Qualified Graduate Assistants will proctor exams, but faculty and staff members will also be asked to make recommendations for additional students who are identified as being likely candidates to be successful Proctors. Proctors will not be permitted to give exams for students within their major. With the exception of the Graduate Assistants who serve as Proctors and already receive compensation for their work, proctors will be paid an hourly wage that is consistent with other Disability Services offices in similar regional private universities. Proctors will attend a training session with the Director of Counseling/Disability Services to review Academic Integrity issues associated with proctoring exams, to discuss new policies that may have been implemented, and to provide training on other critical issues related to proctoring and Director of Counseling/Disability Services. Failure to attend the training session may lead to dismissal as a Proctor.
Proctors will complete a Testing Report during each exam and will submit this along with the exam and the answer sheet to the Director of Counseling/Disability Services. The exam and answer sheet will be returned to the professor or his/her designee by either the Proctor, the Graduate Assistant, or the Director of Counseling/Disability Services.
Proctors will complete a Weekly Time Report on the Friday of each week they proctor exams and submit this form to the Director of Counseling/Disability Services. This form will be used to enter information into the Cumberland University payroll system to generate proctor paychecks. Failure of a Proctor to submit a Weekly Time Sheet may result in not being paid for that time period.
Any incident of a Proctor not complying with the Director of Counseling/Disability Services policies will result in disciplinary action as outlined in the Cumberland University Staff Handbook.
