The final examination for each course (for all except QAS 495, 496, 498, 499, 598, 599 and 594) and the Graduate Writing Exam will be proctored. In order to maximize security and assure testing integrity of the final examination, it will be the responsibility of each student to identify a proctor to be approved by the Academic Coordinator each term.
Ideally, this proctor would be the local American Society of Quality (ASQ) section Education and/or Certifiaction chairperson. The ASQ has an Education/Certification chairperson in each of their 250 plus sections located throughout the United States. These chairpersons coordinate local training and proctor the national ASQ quarterly certification examinations.
An alternate examination proctor must be a professional
such as a librarian, military officer, or
local high school or college faculty member. The proctor's
instructions include a requirement for the student
to provide acceptable official document. Final exams
will be taken
at the course Web site in Blackboard. The proctor will be issued a password via e-mail to allow
the student access to the final exam, once the student has entered the class site in Blackboard.
NOTE: In some international locations, the
be required to fax the completed exam to the MSQA Office.
