A provider is responsible for making sure course examinations are proctored by a faculty or staff member, or third party proctor acceptable to the Commission. Examples of acceptable third party proctors are listed in Section 535.65(h) of TREC rules. Proctors must be required to positively identify that the student taking the exam is the student who registered for and took the course. It is equally important to make sure proctors understand that an examinee must be monitored at all times. In other words, the proctor must be able to observe the student taking the exam to ensure the overall security and integrity of the exam process.
If for some reason, a provider finds it necessary to employ a method of proctoring other than what has been approved by TREC, you must submit written notification to TREC and receive approval prior to implementation.
