Proctor Requirements

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 Certificaction 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 Proctor may be required to fax the completed exam to the MSQA Office.

Beginning in the Fall 2018 term, students will have the opportunity to use ProctorU. ProctorU is a live online proctoring service that allows you to take your exam from the comfort of your home. ProctorU is available 24/7, however you will need to schedule your proctoring session at least 72 hours in advance to avoid any on demand scheduling fees.

In order to use ProctorU you will need to have a high-speed internet connection, a webcam (internal or external), a windows or Apple Operating System, and a government issued photo id.
