Test Proctoring | Kent State Tuscarawas | Kent State University

Test Proctoring

Professors' policies differ regarding makeup exams, so be sure to read your syllabus and speak with your professor about your arrangements prior to taking a test.

Students enrolled in online courses, but who are taking in-person exams, must inform the instructor that the exam is being monitored at the Tuscarawas Campus. The instructor can upload the exam to the website www.kent.edu/tusc/faculty-services-test-proctoring. If the exam is to be taken on the computer through Blackboard Learn, the instructor must email the password to Dr. Stephen Minnick at sminnick@kent.edu.
