    Policy

    It is not acceptable for clerical staff or student workers to proctor course examinations.

    It is appropriate to ask faculty colleagues, preferably within the department, to proctor an exam when the course instructor must be absent.

    In emergency situations, individual faculty members might have no alternative but to ask either the departmental clerical staff or a student worker for assistance during an exam period. However, in the absence of such an emergency, faculty members are expected to administer their own course examinations.
