Proctoring sessions are held at Skyline High School on Tuesdays from 4-7 pm. Students can also contact their A2 Virtual+ building liaison to take tests at their building of residency on days when the liaison will be in the building.
Students now sign the following statement when proctoring that alerts to our policy on academic dishonesty:
At the end of the proctoring session, computer history will be reviewed. Any history that was erased will be treated the same as a history that shows students veered off the testing site. Both cases will result in the student receiving a zero for the assessment and a meeting will be held with my parents.
If I have to leave the room during a proctoring session, I will give the proctor my cell phone until I return. I also understand that I need to return to proctoring quickly because some of the tests will time-out and because the time I am away is part of a timed test allotment.
Proctored Testing Requirements
Students must take at least one proctored assignment for each class.
In addition, proctoring requirements may include...
Midterm exams and final exams MUST be proctored for some classes. If your class does not have a midterm exam or final exam, your instructor or mentor and you may decide on the unit tests that will be proctored. Any Ann Arbor Public School course that requires a common assessment will also have this exam proctored. District required pre/post-tests are also to be proctored.
At least one test from your class should be proctored for your class; do not leave all testing to the end of the term.
Students are required to attend these sessions as part of your online class; one test should be taken before the midpoint and then the final, and Common Assessment if required, before the end of the course. If the student does not take these tests during a proctored session s/he will receive a grade of zero "0" for the test(s).
Please note that you may not miss a class to attend a proctored test session nor are students allowed to go to another school during the day.
Proctors will record the computer and the time the session began for each student. At the end of the proctoring session, computer history will be reviewed. Any history that was erased will be treated the same as a history that shows students veered off the testing site. Both cases will result in the student receiving a zero.
Students who show a significant grade difference between proctored exams and homework will have the entire grade book reviewed. A meeting and/or additional steps will be required. There is a possibility that the student can fail the course.
