Proctored Exam

Proctored Exam


CALIMT approves two, flexible proctoring options: live & remote.

Live Proctor

The live proctor is chosen by the student and approved by CALIMT. Students are responsible for securing the proctor and site if the student decides to opt to use a live proctor. Local libraries, testing centers and other higher education institutions are options for the student to locate a live proctor. Students must schedule the proctored exam date with the live proctor in advance.
