Proctored Exams are designed to test a student’s overall knowledge of your program’s learning objectives and are administered at predetermined points during a student’s program.
Exams are graded as either “Successful” or “Unsuccessful” and will not impact the student’s cumulative GPA. Students who are awarded an “Unsuccessful” grade for a Proctored Exam may retake the exam four additional times. Students may appeal for additional attempts at their exams if necessary.
Students will be prompted to register for their Proctored Exam on their Student Portal. Additionally, the Aspen University Testing Office (a branch of the Office of the Registrar) will notify students when they are eligible to take their Proctored Exam. If you have registered for your exam and did not receive this email within one business day, please contact the Testing Office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Aspen University is proud to partner with ProctorTrack to offer remote Proctored Exams to benefit students with increased ease and flexibility.
ProctorTrack is an online proctoring service that allows you to securely take your exam from home, rather than going to a physical testing location. You can find out more about ProctorTrack here: https://www.proctortrack.com/students/how-it-works-students/
Where and When Can I Take My Exam?
Once you have enrolled in your exam, you will have access to your proctored exam via D2L (Aspen University Classroom). You can enter the D2L (Aspen University Classroom) course at any time to view test taking tips, study guides, exam instructions, etc. When you’re ready to take your exam, you’ll do so through the quizzes section of D2L (Aspen University Classroom). You can take your exam in any private, quiet area of your home. You do not need to schedule an appointment and can take your exam at any time that is convenient for you.
How Long Do I Have to Complete My Test?
You will be placed into your D2L (Aspen University Classroom) exam course and notified of that placement within 1-2 business days of registering for your exam. You will have 30 days from the date you were put in your course to complete your exam. You can have up to two attempts at the exam within that 30-day period, so make sure you don’t wait until the last minute.
