Proctor and Exam Information

Students enrolled in online math summer courses will be required to take proctored exams. Students must submit the proctor form for approval at least one week before the first exam. The student must select a proctor to administer, supervise, and authenticate that exams were taken by the student according to guidelines established by Johns Hopkins University. All proctors must be approved by the Department of Mathematics. If you do not have an approved proctor, you will not receive credit for your exams.

The JHU Department of Mathematics is also equipped to proctor exams for students on campus. Please fill out the Proctor Approval Form and list Johns Hopkins University as the proctor to take exams on campus. Exams given on campus will be scheduled between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday-Saturday, and the dates will be in the course syllabus.

An exam proctor will receive Test Verification Instructions with each exam, supervise the exam, and authenticate that the exam was taken by the student registered for the course. The proctor will return the Test Verification Form and completed exam to the Department of Mathematics.

Acceptable proctors:

  • Principal or superintendent of educational service region, school, or district, either public or parochial
  • 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)
  • Testing Center
  • Full-time high school or college instructor or librarian
  • Corporate education director
  • Online course instructor

Your proctor cannot be related to you in any way or be chiefly a friend (it is not necessary that you know your proctor—many students meet their proctor for the first time when they approach them about proctoring). Please note that any compensation to the proctor is strictly between students and the proctor. The JHU mathematics program does not compensate proctors.
