Proctor Requirement

Step 1. Apply for Proctor Approval

All City Vision University students are required to select a proctor. This person will be approved by the university to proctor the examinations that students take while at the school. This is necessary to preserve the integrity of the examination process because exams are not open book.

The proctor cannot be a relative of the student, and cannot be a student of City Vision University. Some examples might include a college or university administrator or faculty member, a school superintendent or principal, a school or public librarian, ministry director, or a pastor.

Once you've found a proctor who meets these criteria, have him or her fill out the application at: http://www.cityvision.edu/proctor-apply

This form can be found on the City Vision University website when you click on the Proctor Application link under the Student Services menu.

Step 2. Proctoring During Exams (After Proctor is Approved)

  1. Be sure to complete the proctor application form (above) at least two business days before the exam is to be taken. Wait to receive approval of the proctor.
     
  2. The student must arrange with the proctor a time and place for the examination to be administered. He or she must be present in the room with the student during the entire time the examination is being taken.
    Note: City Vision University exams are not "open book" and students may not use textbooks, notes or study guides to look up answers to test questions.
     
  3. The proctor should ask the student to show you a government issued ID to verify that the person taking the test is indeed the student you have signed up to proctor.
     
  4. When the student takes the test, our Learning Management System (Populi) asks the proctor for contact information, including a mobile phone number. See instructions from Populi or view the adjacent picture.
     
  5. Our system will send the proctor a check-in code via SMS. After the proctor enters it, the student can take the test.
     
  6. After the student submits the test, Populi sends the proctor a check-out code via SMS/mobile text messaging. The proctor must enter the code and check to verify that he or she monitored the student for the entire exam period and did not observe any cheating. Do not forget this step as we cannot verify that the proctor was present otherwise.
     
  7. Most exams are automatically graded so the student will see his or her grade immediately.  Those exams with essays or short answers will involve the professor in the grading process so the results will not be displayed immediately.  The student will receive an email notification when these exams are graded completely.
