A "proctored exam" is an exam in which you must come to a testing center where a person
checks your identity and then allows you to take the exam under supervision.
IMPORTANT: All Holmes-provided courses will require at least two proctored exams,
with one of these being the Final Exam. All hosted courses will also require proctored
exams. Proctored exams may be in the form of computerized Canvas tests or paper tests.
It is the student's responsibility to make an appointment with an official testing
- Holmes CC and the MSVCC provide proctoring services through a service called SmarterProctoring
- Check each course's information to determine the testing dates.
- To schedule your proctored test at any MSVCC testing location, log in to your Canvas
Course and click the SmarterProctoring link at the bottom left hand side of the page.
